Benefits of the plate clamp
Like all of the plate lifting products we supply, the primary purpose of picking plate clamps as a solution to your load-lugging needs is if you are specifically intending to shift plate materials, such as sheet metals.
With the right plate clamp you will be able to manoeuvre these otherwise awkward objects without any hassle, helping you to improve productivity and also limit the risks associated with this type of activity.

We also supply high grip and twin clamp models, as well as versatile universal plate clamps for horizontal and vertical lifting needs.

As you might expect there are lots of different types of plate clamps to consider ordering from our site.
Vertical plate lifting clamps are intended to grip the plate and secure it in a vertical orientation, while horizontal clamps offer an alternative approach which may be more convenient, depending on your setup and the amount of space that is available.
We also have models which can lift plate at various angles, like the Camlok CY plate clamp. This has a hinged lifting eye which facilitates angled lifting. Always follow the instructions to make sure the angle you are lifting at is appropriate and safe.
In general you can expect to see plate clamps deployed simultaneously, with two clamps making for a more secure, stable lifting experience with a higher load capacity than a single clamp. However, if the weight of the material is low, single clamp lifting may be possible.
There is a lot of choice in our plat clamp range, so if you are checking out your options for the first time, you might want to search for a particular manufacturer that you are familiar with already.
Individual plate clamp models are often created in several iterations to cater to different lifting capacities.
For example, the GT CD vertical clamp has a total of five different load limits available, starting at 500kg and topping out at 5 tonnes.
You should also consider the weight of the clamp itself, as well as its dimensions and other relevant specifications, when making your choice.
If you have other types of awkward loads to lift and shift, our material handling equipment will be a great help. Meanwhile our height safety kit is capable of serving an important purpose in some of the most precarious professional scenarios.
