The Type BB clamp has a flat upper surface that allows a nut to be tightened down and is often used in conjunction with the recessed Type BA. This flat surface makes the Type BB ideal for use with studs, J-Bolts or threaded rod. This flat surface also makes the product suitable for use with ASTM A325 bolts where the oversized head is too large to be held by the recess of the Type BA Clamp.
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 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 BB clamp is designed to suit parallel flanges such as wide flange beams and angles. For tapered flanges please use the Type BW or BK1 products.
