ABB self-aligning clips 12 July 2022

ABB highlights it is able to provide a range of solutions through its E-Klips® collection, that offering a quick, easy and reliable method of fixing surfaces to steelwork without the need for bracket making, drilling holes or the use of nuts and bolts – including its new purlin clip.

Like all E-Klips®, the purlin clip is quick and simple to install and comes in a range to suit purlins from 1.5mm – 7mm thick and threaded rod sizes M8 and M10. The clips are also equipped with a Z600+ coating for corrosion resistance.

The self-aligning purlin clip for threaded rod is designed for hanging threaded dropper rod from steel purlins. ABB states that, unlike other clips, this unique design allows the threaded dropper rod to automatically align itself vertically, therefore removing the chance of misapplication, which can arise when using fixed or rigid clips.

E-Klips® spring steel fasteners have been manufactured in the UK for over 35 years, providing a flexible and easy to use fixing solution for a wide range of applications.
