Understanding the Weight Capacity of BeamClamps®

BeamClamps® don’t just reinforce connections between steel girders, they reinforce the quality of your projects with unparalleled strength and reliability. The importance of secure steel connections is obvious, but for any project that could benefit from BeamClamps® as its primary means of steel-to-steel bonding, an important question needs to be answered.

Understanding how you can maximize the load-bearing potential of BeamClamps® for your project is crucial to their vital role in construction, and despite how initially simple the technology seems, it comes with a surprising degree of versatility that can be taken advantage of to better realize their full potential.

What Are BeamClamps®?

BeamClamps® are robust devices designed to affix two steel girders together securely, and without damaging the materials being connected. This ensures a secure connection that can easily be repaired and maintained. Whether you’re erecting a skyscraper or merely assembling a warehouse, BeamClamps® provide the support needed to withstand immense loads and adverse conditions, ensuring the structural integrity of a construction project. Unlike welding, BeamClamps® are not physically bonded to the steel itself, but their design ensures a similar degree of durability. 

How do BeamClamps® work?

Before explaining how to get the most out of their load-bearing abilities it’s important to understand how BeamClamps® work, specifically how they’re able to hold two steel beams together and create such a strong connection without physically bonding them together. The secret to BeamClamps® is right in their name, they use typically four small clamps, two on each side of a girder, to affix two beams in place. 

Between both girders is a small square frame with two holes on each side, and it’s through those holes that bolts are run through. On the top and bottom sides of those bolts are the top and bottom fasteners of each beam clamp, and once the bolts are tightened securely, the clamps serve their purpose by holding the beams together with equal distribution of weight due to their being two clamps on each side tightly secured to the steel. 

Factors Influencing Weight Capacity

To understand the weight capacity of BeamClamps®, it’s important to take several factors into account, including:

  • Material Strength
    Our BeamClamps® are manufactured from premium materials known for their exceptional strength and durability, allowing them to bear the weight of heavy steel beams with ease. For even heavier loads and other situation-specific applications, LNA Solutions also offers a variety of different clamps and other supplementary devices that can facilitate more specific needs. 
  • Design Engineering
    Each BeamClamp® is meticulously designed to distribute weight evenly and minimize stress points. Different types of BeamClamps® are best suited to different weight capacities and other factors, so choosing the right variation for the right job is crucial to maximizing their potential load-bearing capabilities.
  • Installation Accuracy
    Proper installation is crucial to optimize the weight capacity of BeamClamps®. When compared to other steel-to-steel connection methods, BeamClamps® offer an easier overall installation process. However, considering the vital importance of proper installation, our team provides comprehensive guidelines and support to ensure correct placement and alignment. 
Determining Weight Capacity

The weight capacity of any BeamClamp® varies depending on factors such as beam size, material, and application. For specific weight requirements, consult our product page and other available resources to determine an ideal BeamClamp® solution tailored to your project needs.
