Type LS Girder Clamp

Stainless steel, self-adjusting girder clamp used to quickly connect steel beams with flat or tapered flanges and resist moderate tensile loading. Provides excellent corrosion resistance.

View technical specification

Overview

The Type LS girder clamp is used to achieve a fast steelwork fixing connection between two steel beams or other steel sections where moderate load capacities are present. Manufactured from high strength cast stainless steel grade 316 to provide excellent corrosion resistance. The clamp also self-adjusts to suit flange thicknesses between 3mm and 30mm. Suitable for use on parallel and tapered flanges up to 10°.

Features & Benefits

  • Made from high strength stainless steel grade 316.
  • Self-adjusts to suit 3mm - 30mm flange thicknesses (size M20).
  • For parallel and tapered flanges up to 10°.
  • The tail spans slotted clearance holes.

Packing Pieces

Packing pieces are available to increase the clamping range. Download datasheet for further information.

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.
