Suspension Clamp System
February 23, 2009
Suitable for hanging or suspending support rods, equipment, piping or other components weighing up to 2,000 lb, a suspension clamp system allows complete lateral adjustment and does not require welding or specialized tools. End-suspension clamps anchor the ends of back-to-back angles or channels to joists. The back-to-back angles or channels provide symmetry by exerting an equal-but-opposite horizontal force on each other, effectively canceling out the horizontal force. This contributes to less bending stress, allowing the channels to support a higher concentrated load. Midspan suspension clamps are adjustable along the angle or channel span to hang objects such as conveyors or equipment from threaded rods. The systems can be combined with bridging clamp systems for increased flexibility in load or suspension placement.
