Framing Clamp SystemSuspension Clamp System  
In a typical framing application, four End Clamps are attached to two parallel bar joists or beams. Each End Clamp slides over the top of the joist, occupying a space 1 1/4” high by 3 1/4” wide between the joist and corrugations of a standard roof deck. The bolt slots of the End Clamp hold Grade 5 carriage bolts captive while tightening the nuts. The slight slope of the bolt slot counteracts any excess clearance, placing the clamp system squarely on top of the joist. Combined with T-Brackets and Perforated Channels, this system is ideal for the safe and economical installation of exhaust fans, vents, sky lights, and roof mounted air-conditioning units.
