AllenKey Clamp Tubular FittingsA Cost Effective Alternative to Welding with Unlimited Applications
AllenKey Clamp produces the world's leading structural pipe fittings, providing a connection system that has revolutionised tubular structures.
The AllenKey Clamp principle has been developed and refined over more than 60 years into an extensive range of fittings that cater for all forms of tubular structure.
The simple but effective engineering principle of the AllenKey Clamp Fitting is the foundation of the most versatile pipe connection system available. There are many variations of fitting to suit wide-ranging applications, providing the versatility to achieve virtually any structural configuration.
- Made of cast iron to BS EN ISO 1461
- High corrosion resistance
- Quick installation
- No welding, so no hot work permits required
- No threading or bolting, so no special tools required
- A flexible system that can accommodate on site variations
- Cost effective to install as it is quick to install and only low skilled workforce is required
- TUV certified for strength, manufacturing quality and consistency
Galvanised Steel Components
Steel tube is an inherently efficient structural component. It is strong, has no sharp corners, and is readily available. The difficulty in using steel tube to form structures arises when joining. Threaded tube must be supplied in set lengths making for zero flexibility in installation. Welding is labour intensive, requires a highly skilled workforce, and specialised equipment.
The answer is AllenKey Clamp fittings. The underlying principle is simple but highly effective: use slip-on components to create versatile and rigit tubular structures.
The AllenKey Clamp® Fitting
The engineering principle behind the AllenKey Clamp fitting is the foundation of the most versatile tube connection system available. There are many variations of tubular fittings to suit a wide range of applications, providing the versatility to achieve any structural configuration. AllenKey Clamptubular fittings are galvanised iron castings manufactured to the requirements of BS EN 1562 & 1563. We have a range of fittings to suit different tube sizes, from 17.5mm to 60.3mm. Hexagon socket set screws firmly lock the fitting to the tube. Set screws are manufactured in case hardened steel and are protected against corrosion; alternatively, stainless steel screws are available. A AllenKey Clamp fitting (size 5 to 9) can support an axial load of 2000 lbs (900 kg). per grub screw with the grub screw tightened to a torque of 29 lbs. ft.(39 Nm); rating includes a safety factor of 2:1. Affordable Fabricating and building with AllenKey Clamp tubular fittings saves time, money, and resources.
