The Type BK1 is a self adjusting clamp consisting of two parts. The body has a spherical seat cast into it to allow a hemispherical washer to sit in and rotate. This allows the body to adjust to any clamping thickness while providing a flat surface for a nut or bolt to be tightened down onto it. This product is ideal for applications where the flange thickness cannot easily be measured or where the flange thickness may vary throughout a project. Due to its clamping action, it is also suitable for clamping tapered flanges and rails unto 15 degrees. All sizes of BK1 have a wide back tail section to allow the clamp to bridge the gap of a slotted hole and also to connect to the open face of metal framing strut channel The 5/16”, 3/8” and 1/2” products have an additional cut out in the tail to provide a tab that fits inside the open face of the strut.
Long packing shims (BF2 and BG2) can be used to increase the clamping range, see page 12 for details. To make selecting the appropriate packing easier please refer to Table 1 on page 16 of the catalogue.
