Elesa says its Panel Support Clamp range offers a quick and robust solution to the construction of safety screens manufactured in acrylic or other materials. These screens are particularly beneficial when managing Covid infection risks in public areas or the workplace.
Elesa Panel Support Clamps enable simple assembly of divider panels such as “sneeze screens and shields” for industrial safety enclosures, guarding of machines or workstations. In particular this range enables easy installation of protective panels onto industrial frames in steel or aluminium extruded sections. This range has been extended with the PPR series in black or grey, for plain panels between 4mm to 6mm, or for wire mesh as an aid to ensuring compliance with machine safety requirements such as ISO 13857 para 4.2.4.
Suitable for architectural panels and similar, such as stair panels, partitions, balconies and more. Elesa Panel Support Clamps can be fitted to standard 1 inch square tube without drilling and come with or without internal vibration damping rubber grip pads for plain panels, or with locking teeth to suit electro-welded mesh type TEC®. They are constructed in tough glass reinforced polyamide with flush mounted M5 AISI 304 stainless steel fittings for a quick and simple clamp-in-place installation.
Original PC Clamp series offer the option to be securely fitted to aluminium extrusions or steel channel sections and incorporates full component retention when open, plus rubber grip pads to ensure stable location without drilling of the panel. Panel installation with PC Panel Support Clamps requires that the correct spacer be fitted to match the relevant panel thickness and the hex keyed screw (M6) be tightened up. The positive grip characteristics of the clamp, combined with its method of fixing, ensures a secure fixing of the guard panel. Grip range of the PC Clamp runs from 3.1mm up to 8.00mm by virtue of retained spacers.
