Aluminum Stainless and Copper Plated Pipe Clamps
Wesanco Pipe Clamps are available from stock in Stainless Steel Types 304 and 316 and by special order in Aluminum and Copper Plated. Consult factory for details.
Aluminum Engineering Data
To determine the appropriate beam load capacity for extruded Aluminum Channel Sections, refer to Channel Engineering Data, page 27 thru 77 in this catalog and multiply published values by 40%. To determine the approximate pull out slip load of Wesanco Channel Nuts in extruded Aluminum Channel sections, refer to page 80 in this catalog and multiply the resistance to slip value by 75% and the resistance to pull out value by 50%.
Stainless Steel Engineering Data
The properties of section for stainless steel channels are the same as shown starting on page 27 of this catalog for mild steel channel. Load ratings for stainless steel channel meet or exceed corresponding mild steel ratings published throughout this catalog.
