New Friction Clamps, as manufactured by GKN Kwikform, we are now able to offer these to the original GKN Spec.
We are pleased to have supplied most major scaffold / oil companies with Friction Clamps for fabrication and refurbishment.
We ahve recently supplied OGN Group with a large qty of Friction Clamps for the Bridge Link Project to the Forties Alpha Platform.
Other valued customers include: Cape UK, Cape Australia, Hertel, BIS Chevron Nigeria etc along with most other offshore scaffold companied.
The friction clamps we supply are the only ones available which are manufactured to the original GKN drawings, by our associate engineering company who are I.S.O. 9001:2008 approved. The body of the friction clamp is inspected by an independent testing house, the scaffolding components are manufactured by Presco UK and the High Tensile Chain is certified and marked accordingly. Copies of test certificates are available on request.
We stock the assembled bodies, chains are then added to these, giving exstock availability for any length/pipe diameter, depending on quantity.
We have exported 100's of these clamps, we are main supplier to Hertel, Cape and BIS Industrial. If you require further details or technical info please contact us with your requirements.
To calculate the length of chain required on a friction clamp see below:
Pipe dia x 3.14 x 2 = min chain length
Example:For a pipe diameter of 2.5m
2.5m x 3.14 x 2 = 15.7m
We would recommend a chain length of 16.0m
