How It Works
How It Works
The FastFit system is perfectly packaged in one box, comprising of a frame which wraps around the edges of steel sections and provides positioning for the clamps to be secured. FastFit works for applications at varying angles, by allowing adjustable placement of steel I-beams relative to each other.
The FastFit frame is placed on structural beams and can be adjusted to clamp at the required angle. The structural clamps are then attached and tightened to specified torque rating. The efficiency of the beam attachment system rids the need for on-site testing and scheduling professional installation, as well as, dimishing the need to tamper with the quality of steel sections.
Features & Benefits
- No drilling or welding of steel
- Allows for varying crossover angles
- Guaranteed safe working load
- Flush connection between both steel sections
- Independently load tested

Frequently Asked Questions
Can FastFit connect steel sections at angles other than 90 degrees?
Yes. FastFit beam clamps allows angle crossovers of up to 45 degrees, but this depends on the widths of the steel being connected. See the Measurements & Specifications for widths and angles that can be achieved.
Is a location plate required with FastFit?
No. FastFit wraps around two sections of structural steel that can sit flush against each other.
How long does it take to install FastFit?
FastFit takes less than five minutes to install.
