- Add “1” or “2” to the product code to indicate the desired tail length. For example, a 5/8” bolt diameter with 5/16” tail would be code BY1G16.
- *Frictional failure for the Type BY Clamp is 1mm or 0.039 inches slip from its original position.
- Frictional capacities are based on shot blast and painted steelwork.
- Due to variance in thickness of Hot Dip Galvanized coatings please contact us for frictional capacities based on Hot Dip Galvanized steelwork.
The Type BY clamp is designed for High Friction and Tensile applications that exceed the capacities of the standard BeamClamp products. It features a recessed top that prevents the head of the bolt from rotating during installation therefore requires the use of only one wrench.
The Type BYP washer can be used to fill in the recess of the Type BY to provide a flat surface for a washer and nut. This also allows the Type BY clamps to be used together in beam to beam connections. The full width tail of the BY allows for use with slotted holes and the Type BY may also be used in unison with the Type BZ hook style clamp for greater diversity in applications.
The Safe Working Loads are based on assemblies tested in typical conditions.
