The Type BA clamp has a recessed upper surface that is designed to hold the head of a bolt in place while the nut is tightened. The rear section of the clamp is called the tail and is available in three different tail lengths, these being size 1, size 2 and size 3 [see Dimension E on the table below]. By selecting the appropriate tail length and with the use of BeamClamp packing shims, any thickness of steel flange can be connected.
To make selecting the correct tail length easier please refer to Table 1 on page 16 of the catalogue.
The Type BA clamp is designed to suit parallel flanges such as wide flange beams and angles. For tapered flanges please use the Type BT or BK1 products. BeamClamp recommends that SAE Grade 5 bolts be used with the Type BA clamp.
