CLAMP FRAME SECTION DATA

Clamp frames are ideal for fitting to either aluminium or steel structures.  They are fastened from the inside of the vessel by an internal clamp ring which is clamped to the external frame with stainless steel screws. The heads of the screws are concealed by a decorative plastic trim so that the fastenings are not visible from either the interior or exterior of the vessel.

 

Our customers report a reduction in fitting times of over 50% when compared to a standard bolt on window and as the structure is not pierced the potential for leaks or corrosion between the frame and structure is virtually eliminated.


There are two clamp styles available:

Standard Clamp Sections – Suitable for most window sizes and styles.

 

The Standard Clamp Section range includes four different frame sections to accommodate fixed, sliding and double-glazed units of varying glass thicknesses.

 

All of the Standard Clamp Section range have identical exterior profiles, so you can mix requirements for thicker glazed windows at the front of the vessel with thinner glazed side windows without affecting the external appearance of the windows.

 

These sections have four interior trims available:

  • 3mm - 15mm walls (Type 1 Trim)

  • 10mm - 25mm walls (Type 2 Trim)

  • 25mm - 43mm walls (Type 3 Trim)

  • 34mm - 54mm walls (Type 4 Trim)

Lite Clamp Sections - Suitable for smaller windows with tighter bend radii.

 

The Lite Clamp Section is specifically designed to enable smaller windows with tighter bend radii to utilise clamp frame technology. The smaller exterior profile also makes the Lite Clamp frame a more attractive and appropriate choice in smaller vessels for which larger frame sections may appear obtrusive.

 

This section has two different interior trims available:

  • 4mm - 15mm (Type LC1 Trim)

  • 13mm - 25mm walls (Type LC2 Trim)
