SuperClamp Specifications

     The SuperClamp Trade Mark is synonymous with Excellence in practical design, effective safety and assured quality control. SuperClamp™ products are engineered with the aim to provide safety, efficiency and durability.

    Originally designed and internationally patented as a beam clamp, SuperClamp™ products may be used for both hoisting and lifting applications. The line has been expanded to include Runway Beam Trolleys designed like the original SuperClamp™ to be a one piece fully adjustable trolley. Recently a new design, the Universal Superclamp was added to the line. This model is designed to be used at full rated capacity at angles up to 90° in a 360° radius.

In use in the Mining; On and Off Shore Mineral Exploration; General Maintenance and Construction industries; SuperClamp™ continues to lead the way in safe lifting applications.

 

SuperClampTM Benefits and Advantages

Safety

 

A.    There is no doubt that SuperClamp™ as an anchor point offers probably the safest method of attaching and securing to an overhead girder or arch beam section.

B.    Due to the design and engineering features of SuperClamp™, it will not slide, slip, or shudder during the lifting operation.

C.    SuperClamp™ products are designed with a 5:1 Factor of Safety.

D.    Each clamp is issued with a Certificate of Test and Examination.

E.    SuperClamp™ as a lifting tool either singularly or in pairs (i.e., in the lifting of spreader beams) is undoubtedly the safest means available.

 

Speed of Application

A.    The left and right hand threaded bar means the SuperClamp™ can easily be adjusted to facilitate application and can be hand-tightened in a matter of seconds to give maximum positive hold.


B.    Similarly, the SuperClamp™ can be disengaged "in seconds" without involving the user in any untidy and dangerous operation.


C.    Before and after application, SuperClamp™ remains a complete unit with no loose component parts. All component parts of SuperClamp™ are an integrated and fixed part of its mechanical function

 

Versatility

A.    The tremendous adjustability of SuperClamp™ means that very often one unit can be employed in various applications and situations where alternative methods involve up to three or more individual units. In short, one SuperClamp™ replaces three of anyone else's.


B.    SuperClamp™ is sold into a worldwide range of industries with many varied applications:  Wherever there is a lifting situation!

 

Cost Savings

Because of SuperClamp™'s built-in safety features, speed of application and versatility, great cost savings are made against damaged materials, injury to personnel, application time, loss or damage to component parts, lower inventory and extended product life.

We have a recertification program where the clamp can be returned to us to be repaired, load tested, and recertified. This is more cost effective and time efficient then replacing the clamp.

 

Quality and Reliability

SuperClamp™ products are manufactured to the highest standards using the finest materials available:

  • High Tensile Steel: Shackle, bolts, sideplates
  • Mild Steel Enia: Threaded bar, jaw assemblies

SuperClamp™ products are easily stored in one piece and are readily available for maintenance and inspection.
