Q Clamp® fittings are a simple and cost effective way of creating an endless variety of tubular structures without the need for welding. Our extensive range of fittings when combined with standard EN10255 tubing enables the user to create any structure imaginable for use in all manner of industries.
Such uses include but are not limited to:
Qclamp® fittings are a blackheart malleable iron casting manufactured to BS EN 1562:1997 using grade B32-10 material with a hot dipped galvanised finish to BS EN 1461:1999.
All Qclamp® fittings are supplied with stainless steel grub screws. In order to protect any exposed threads in outdoor installations, we recommend the use of an anti-corrosion galvanising spray such as the one sold as part of our Qclamp® range. The grub screws can be tightened with an Allen key, however, if fully tightened using a ratchet key to a torque of 4.1kg/m (29ft/lb) the grub screw is capable of withstanding an applied slip load of 900kg.
Qclamp® fittings are available in five standard sizes designated by the suffix 1 to 5 on the Qclamp® reference number. The standard tube sizes are given in the following table.
|Size reference||Tube diameter (O/D)||Nominal bore|
Note: The nominal bore is a discretionary dimension only. The wall thickness can vary depending on the gauge of tube used which will alter the bore measurement.
