Standard girder clamp used to quickly connect steel beams with parallel / flat flanges and resist moderate tensile loading.
The Type A girder clamp is used to achieve a fast steelwork fixing connection between two steel beams and is often used in a pair with Type B clamps. It has a recessed top to hold the bolt head captive while the nut and washer are tightened down using only one tool. The skirt on the underside of the clamp abuts the edge of the beam flange and prevents the clamp rotating during installation. Type A girder clamps can also be used on their own if one piece of the steelwork has been pre-drilled.
Features & Benefits
Tail Lengths & Packing Pieces
The clamp is available in three tail lengths, Short, Medium and Long and can be used with Lindapter packing pieces to increase the clamping range. Choose the correct combination of tail length and packing pieces to suit a specific flange thickness. Download datasheet for selection table.
Location & End Plates
These plates ensure the clamps and bolts are located in the correct position relative to the supporting steelwork. Location plates are simple fabricated items designed to sit between the two sections to be clamped together to ensure the bolts are fixed at the correct centres. End plates are simple fabricated items that are pre-welded to support frames, bracket or sections, allowing connection to the supporting structure with standard Lindapter clamps. Download datasheet for further information.

Faster to Install
No drilling or welding!
Reasons to choose Lindapter
Save time and money
Clamping two steel sections together avoids time-consuming welding or conventional drilling and bolting.
On-site drilling and welding is avoided, removing the need for hot work permits and encouraging safer site conditions.
Lindapter clamps are manufactured from high strength materials to resist high load requirements and harsh environments.
Industry leading approvals
Lindapter has earned a reputation synonymous with safety and reliability, gaining multiple independent approvals.
Quickly align steel sections by sliding the section into the correct position before tightening the Girder Clamp to complete the installation.
Free connection design
Lindapter’s experienced Engineers can design a bespoke connection based on your specific requirements free of charge.
