Chicago Clamp Co. Joist Grip Framing Clamp System

Chicago Clamp Co. has introduced the Joist Grip Framing Clamp System. Backed with the Florida Product Approval rating, the new framing system has a distributed load capacity of 4,000 pounds in uplift and download conditions. The new Joist Grip Framing Clamp System is installed underneath existing corrugated roof deck and is an ideal framing system for supporting rooftop units, exhaust fans and skylights. The patent pending Joist Grip Framing Clamp System is bolted into place offering greater flexibility in framing installation, removal and relocation as client needs change. The bolted connections eliminate the hazards and risks associated with traditional welding methods. The system offers contractors an engineered and certified solution, cutting project costs, minimizing installation time, and reducing risks associated with joist loading and roof framing projects.
