Fast Fit, a new product in the BeamClamp range, is an off the shelf engineered clamping solution to connect two steel sections together without the need for on-site drilling or welding. All you need to secure two sections together comes in one box. The system comprises a frame which wraps around the edges of the sections and slides into place to provide a position for the clamps to be secured.
The system allows for varying angles that can be easily achieved by sliding the beams relative to each other.
The Fast Fit system delivers a guaranteed connection every time without the need for on-site testing or relying on the skills of the installer. No removal of the protective coatings on the existing steel or holes is needed to make a connection. All that is required to complete a connection are simple hand tools and semi-skilled labour.

It gives the user the option within one fixing of suspending the service by connecting M06/M08 or M10 threaded bar and also has the ability to hang wire systems from it.
This product provides the user with a fixing they can use in almost any situation on site without having to know the decking profile specification prior to arriving on site. This combined with the various fixing options avoids wasting time on site having to wait for specific fixings for the individual applications.
The other products featured in the range provide a solution for suspending building services from existing structures by the means of using threaded bar.

BEAMCLAMP is an extensive range of steel to steel clamping products designed for making steel to steel connections without the need for drilling or welding. The clamping system gives the specifier the peace of mind that once the connection is made it has a guaranteed safe working load, and it also provides flexibility for the user when installing and reduces the overall cost. The system is also ideal for areas where drilling or welding is not allowed or access and power is restricted.
The use of BEAMCLAMPS for steel to steel connections allows for much easier adjustability after the connection has been made by simply loosening the bolts, realigning and re-tightening the bolts again afterwards.
