The Type BW clamp is specifically designed to clamp to the tapered flanges of Structural I-Beams and steel channels. The clamp has a flat upper surface that allows a nut to be tightened down. The rear section of the clamp is called the tail and is available in two different tail lengths, these being Size 1 and Size 2[see Dimension E in the table below]. By selecting the appropriate tail length and with the use of BeamClamp packing shims, any thickness of steel flange can be connected. To make selecting the correct tail length easier please refer to Table 2 and 3 on page 17 of the catalog.

The Safe Working Loads are based on assemblies tested in typical conditions.
|Model||A Bolt Dia||B||C||D1||D2||E||Width||Torque (ft lb)||Tensile SWL (lbs)
|Friction SWL (lbs)
(per 4 bolts)
Add 1, 2 or 3 to the product code to indicate the desired tail length. For example, a 5/8” bolt diameter with a 5/16” tail would be product code BW2G16.
Do not exceed the Safe Working Load (SWL) specified
