Plate Clamps

Plate clamps (also known as sheet clamps) make difficult lifts safe and easy and eliminate the need for drilling or creating a hitch. The grip of the plate clamps increases in strength as the weight of the load increases, creating a durable and reliable material handling solution.

We supply a variety of horizontal, and universal plate clamps designed for the effective lifting and turning of steel plates, all at affordable prices. Our plate clamps are engineered to exacting standards to ensure you have a safe and effective clamp, without compromising the materials or quality.

When to use a plate clamp

Sheet metal or plates can be unwieldy when you don’t have the right equipment for the job. Standard forklifts or cranes can make it difficult to secure, lift, transfer, or otherwise move metal sheets because of their weight, size, and attachment points or lack thereof.

Plate clamps are primarily used for safely and securely lifting, turning, and transporting sheet metal materials into any position, including rotating them 180 degrees. These clamps can also be used for lifting and turning steel or metal plates and beams. The jaw of the plate clamp essentially has teeth that safely secure the metal plate and enable lifting of the heavy load. With the added benefit of the powerful spring on the clamp, the two objects essentially become one until you’re ready to position your sheet metal in place.
