A fixed beam girder clamp, also commonly referred to as a "fixed point bracket" or "beam clamp", is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for the suspension of loads or as a connection point between steelwork and other elements.

In most cases, the girder clamp will feature structural clips for clamping onto the flange of a beam and is generally designed with simple bolted connections.

  • It preserves the structural integrity of the steelwork
  • It allows for flexibility in the installation tolerances
  • It can be easily reconfigured in different locations
  • There's no need to drill or weld beams
  • There's no need for hot work permits on site
  • There's no need for specialist tools/equipment
  • Use of this bracket reduces on site labour costs


In its simplest form, the girder clamp features structural clips for fixing to the underside of a beam and a lug for a standard safety pin bow shackle and therefore can be used a suspension point for hoists/rigging motors or steel wires.

In other applications, the girder clamp can be used with a structural clip on either end to connect 2 steel sections together and can also be designed for any angular displacement between the sections along with differences in height.

Hoist UK offers a range of standard "off the shelf" beam clamps but are also able to engineer a solution specific to suit your individual requirements. The below section shows a few examples of custom girder clamps we've designed and manufactured in the past for client applications.


This example shows a fixed steel beam, mounted on the sloped building steelwork with a single suspension point. In this particular set-up, the client wanted a fixed suspension point but also has the ability to adjust if required.

This example shows a runway beam, mounted to the building steelwork at either end with beam girder clamps. In this particular set-up, the girder clamps were designed with a structural support stool to offset the height so that the beam would sit below existing services.

This example shows a truss system, mounted from the building steelwork by a structural girder clamp with offset mounting plate to match the angle of the inclined beam.

In this particular set-up, the client needed the truss to sit as close to the building steelwork as possible whilst remaining straight and level.
