P2788 Unistrut Hinged Beam Clamps

P2788 Hinged Beam Clamp

Unistrut invented the Unistrut slotted channel framing system and continues to be on the forefront of innovation in the slotted channel framing markets.  One of the newest products in the Unistrut product offering is the P2788 Hinged Beam Clamp.   The P2788 is a solution for mounting Unistrut channel level when the building steel is sloped.

The Unistrut P2788 Hinged Beam clamp offers contractors a solution to mounting Unistrut level to sloped structural steel members.  The P2788 beam clamp is designed to pivot up to 18 degrees; so the Unistrut Channel can be installed level, even though the structural steel is not.  The P2788 beam clamp will allow a bolted connection to replace welded angles, custom bent plates, or unsafe field rigging by installers using their imaginations.  The hinged beam clamp will offer the versatility expected of the Unistrut system with published load data that you can use with confidence versus traditional means and methods of field modifying or bending connections in the field to account for sloped steel.
