Vale® Handrail System

Interclamp is a versatile range of malleable iron galvanised slip-on pipe / tube fittings. Typical applications include hand railing, safety guardrails, fencing, playground equipment, shop fitting, milking parlours, racking, sports practice nets, greenhouses, exhibition stands, roof top fall prevention, pedestrian barriers and wheelchair access ramps. With no welding, fast construction of varied structures is made possible by means of a simple hexagon key.

Interclamps are made from malleable iron manufactured in conformance with BS EN 1562:1997, a dependable and well-proven material for this type of product. The fittings are then hot-dipped galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:1999 to produce a durable corrosion-resistant finished surface for extended life. For customising to specific end-user requirements, powder coating is available applied over the galvanising in a wide spectrum of RAL or BS colours on request. Quality setscrews are utilised, as these are a vital component in the high structural integrity of the fitting. To obtain optimum setscrew slip loads, the setscrew should be tightened to 40 Nm, for which a ratchet wrench may be necessary.
