What are LNA Solutions BeamClamps and how do they work

What are BeamClamps® & How Do They Work?

There are a wide variety of options in the world of steel-to-steel connections to facilitate almost any project but to understand how these types of connections can be beneficial to a construction project, it’s important to understand how they work. We’ll explain the most versatile and essential type of steel-to-steel connection technology, the BeamClamp®.  It’s important to understand their advantages over traditional methods such as welding, and why they’re a reliable go-to solution for commercial construction projects. 

What Are BeamClamps®?

BeamClamps® are versatile steel connectors designed to securely affix two steel girders together. They come in a wide variety of types to suit different weights, angles, and other factors, but no matter the type, the purpose they serve, and most of the benefits therein remain the same. Crafted from high-quality materials, these clamps offer exceptional durability and strength, ensuring a stable connection that withstands the test of time.

How Do BeamClamps® Work?

BeamClamps® work by utilizing a simple yet effective mechanism: gripping onto the flanges of steel girders. The clamp is typically equipped with adjustable screws or bolts, allowing for easy customization to fit various beam sizes. Once in place, BeamClamps® create a tight, secure bond between the girders, providing stability and support for the structure. 

Typically it will take multiple beam clamps to ensure a secure connection is established with equal weight distribution. Most often BeamClamps® come in sets of four, with a frame meant to fit between the steel girders, ensuring the clamps remain attached securely in the proper position. Unlike other forms of steel-to-steel connection, BeamClamps® securely connect materials without damaging them through a bonding process, but the strength of their connection is comparatively strong. 

Advantages of BeamClamps®
  • Versatility
    BeamClamps® are compatible with a wide range of beam sizes, making them suitable for diverse applications in commercial construction projects.
  • Ease of Installation
    Unlike welding, which requires specialized equipment and skilled labor, beam clamps can be installed quickly and easily with basic tools. This can reduce time, labor costs, and the likelihood of costly installation errors. 
  • Non-Destructive Connection
    Welding can weaken the structural integrity of steel girders due to heat stress and distortion. beam clamps, on the other hand, create a non-destructive connection that preserves the integrity of the beams. This also makes repairs and maintenance easier, since beam clamps can be removed and re-installed with relative ease.
  • Adjustable Design
    With adjustable screws or bolts, beam clamps offer flexibility to accommodate slight variations in beam sizes, ensuring a precise and secure fit every time.
