BeamClamp® Components Type BE1 and BE2

Overview

The BE1 and BE2 feature a socket screw at the back to provide adjustment for varying steel thicknesses. They are the ideal choice when flange thicknesses are unknown or change on a project as they eliminate the need for packing pieces up to their maximum adjustment (Dim E). Once this maximum is exceeded our BF2 and BG2 packers can be used to increase the clamping range, please see page 18 for details. To make the selection of tail lengths and packing pieces easy please see tables on pages 24 and 25. Please note the BE1 and BE2 are not suitable for steel flanges with tapers greater than 5 degrees.

  • Hot Dip Galvanised BS EN ISO 1461
  • Manufactured from Ductile Iron to BS EN 1563
  • 5 to 1 Factor of Safety
  • Lloyds Register approved
  • Socket screw adjustment

The Safe Working Loads are based on assemblies tested in typical conditions
