A girder clamp is similar to a beam clamp in that they clamp onto a steel beam or girder, however some models can be used to lift the beams or girders as well as be used as an anchor point on a beam. The girder dogs are for specifically lifting girders and enable maximum grip along a sufficient length of the girder flanges.
Girder Clamps are designed to be used for in-line, vertical loading only and should never be used for side-loading. Ideal for industrial lifting applications girder clamps are easy to fit and maintain; and no additional tools are required.
Lifting Gear Direct can supply a range of girder clamps from the trusted Riley – super clamp brand. We have permanently fixed, adjustable girder clamps; fixed jaw girder clamps; swivel jaw girder clamps and girder dogs.
As with all lifting equipment it is important to check over your girder clamps before each use to ensure there are no evident problems which could affect the safety in use; look out for cracks, distortions, corrosion, wear to moving parts and ensure the locking function works correctly. Remember to have your equipment thoroughly inspected at regular intervals by a trained inspector. Lifting Gear inspections can be arranged.
