They need to hold heavy loads, which means it’s crucial to understand how to work with these tools safely. There are many ways to do this, but some of the most effective are:
Follow PP clamp Thickness Identification
PP clamps are designed to lift the thickness of plates that are identified by the manufacturer. This will be shown in the form of an identification plate on the clamp itself. These clamps must never be used to lift plates less than or greater than the thickness that has been identified. To do otherwise might risk an injury to you or damage to the product. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and avoid safety hazards.
Only Ever Lift One Pipe
A PP clamp should only ever be used to lift a single plate at a time. The only exception to this rule is if you are lifting a stack of plates, horizontally, with two or four clamps, distributing the weight. Lifting more than one vertically with a single clamp could lead to an injury, or to a damaged product as the plates will slip out and fall.
