Steel to Steel Connections: BeamClamp® v Traditional Methods

Steel to Steel Connections: BeamClamp® v Traditional Methods

23 October 2018

BeamClamp® is an innovative and alternative solution to making steel connections.

In situations where you might usually resort to welding, drilling or bolting to make connections, we believe BeamClamp® could be easier, cheaper and more efficient.

BeamClamp® v welding

Welding might be the go to method when making steel connections, but is it the best? Though it may be economical in some situations, such as if the connection can be made off site, it comes with many flaws and drawbacks.

Welding requires expensive equipment and skilled labour, and the quality of the weld can be entirely down to the skill of the welder. Once made, the connection is permanent, and there is no room for on-site adjustment or temporary works.

If the steel has a protective coating, for example if it is hot-dip galvanised like many Kee products, this coating will need to be removed and then replaced afterwards, which could affect the integrity of the coating.

Finally, welding creates heat and sparks that can be hazardous, meaning a hot works permit will be required, accompanied by fire-watches after the completion of the work.

BeamClamp® avoids all of these issues: the solution is simple and straightforward, meaning there’s no need for specialist labour, and the system will not affect existing protective coatings.

BeamClamp® can be temporary or permanent, and the lack of required permits or fire-watches can save time and money.

BeamClamp® v drilling and bolting

Another common solution for steel connections is drilling and bolting. Where the design allows for off-site fabrication, this can be a quick and simple way to make connections.

However, drilling steel on-site can be expensive and complicated, requiring heavy drilling equipment and skilled labour. As with welding, drilling can damage the integrity of any existing coating, and perhaps even the integrity of the structure itself.

Drilling through thick steel sections can be costly and time-consuming, as standard drilling speeds must be adhered to, and drill bits can wear out quickly and be costly to replace.

BeamClamp® once again comes out the clear winner in terms of ease of installation, time and cost saving.

Comparisons

To illustrate just how BeamClamp® can save you time and money, we have compared the costs in both money and time for a very common connection, pictured opposite, when you choose a welded solution, a drilled/bolted solution and, finally, BeamClamp®.

Whichever way you look at it, BeamClamp® is the clear winner, and can save you serious time and money over the traditional methods.

New Full Height Gates for Safe Access from Ladders

December 2018

New Full Height Gates for Safe Access from Ladders
Full height self closing safety gate
27 August 2018

We have added full height gate options to the range of Kee Gate self closing-safety gates.

Ideal for protecting openings on ladders, stairs and roof hatches, the full height safety gates comply with EN 4211: Specification for Permanently Fixed Ladders which requires gates on ladders to offer the same level of protection as EN 14122 compliant guardrails.

The full height spring loaded safety gate is 1.1m high and is fully adjustable in width to accommodate openings of up to 1m and can easily be retro-fitted to existing structures. As with other gates in the Kee Gate portfolio of self-closing safety gates, these industrial full height safety gates create a safe working environment by automatically closing behind the user one they have passed through the gate.

Features and Benefits
Available in Galvanised or Powder Coated
Complies with EN 4211
Reversible hinges for either left or right hand side of an opening for easy installation
Can be retro-fitted to existing structures
Salt spray tested for corrosion resistance
Spring loaded mechanism for opening and closing
CE marked
