Heavy duty, adjustable clamping system for rails, bars, pipes, conduits and other round and square tube applications ranging from 1.5 inches to 2.5 inches. Made from non-sparking, long lasting, UV/water and chemical resistant materials, this pipe clamp system is ideal for mounting all types of lights to pipes and conduit, including explosion proof lights. Patent Pending. Click here for our smaller bar clamp for 3/8 inch to 1.25 inch pipes and our medium size bar clamp for 7/8 inch to 1.75 inch bars, rails and pipe conduit.
This bar clamp is machined from non-sparking Delrin II (acetal copolymer) which makes it applicable to hazardous location environments. Delrin is very effective and popular in manufacturing environments, including petrochemical, paint spray booths and food processing applications, due to its water, UV and chemical resistant nature. Combined with its non-sparking properties, this pipe clamp mount is ideal for mounting explosion proof lights to pipes and conduit in addition to its obvious application for auxiliary lights.
This pipe mount clamping system is adjustable and can be used on pipes and tubes ranging from 1.5 inches to 2.5 inches in diameter. The interlocking blocks, create a "cinching scissor" action to tighten to any bar, rail or tube as the socket head screws are tightened.
The mounting plate that ships with this bar clamp mount has mounting holes that accommodates any 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch mounting hardware for indoor and outdoor lighting applications. There is also room to drill and/or tap additional holes.
The existing hole patterns are for the 2 bolt mounts for our LED light emitter bars and infrared emitters; halogen and HID off road lights and High Intensity Discharge (HID) vehicle mount lights to vehicles, heavy equipment, ATVs and boats. The existing hole patterns also accommodate the pipe mounting of our surface mount explosion proof fluorescent lights for paint spray booths, oil rigs, derricks and the like.
The adjustable clamping system cinches to size around rails of different diameters and can handle payloads to 60+ pounds under extreme vibration.
The design of the bar clamp enables the operator to position it on horizontally or vertically situated poles, rails, etc. 2 sets of mounting holes offer the operator the ability to mount the mounting plate on the top or the side of the brackets. Thus this bracket system can be mounted on horizontal or vertical rails, bars or tubes. This was in response to customer`s demand for mounting solutions for vertical rails on pumping trucks, etc.
The bar clamp mount is made from Delrin II (acetal copolymer) and is available in white and black. Delrin is designed to be an alternative to metal, and is strong, durable and cannot be damaged by water and UV rays. Thus Delrin is an ideal material for boating applications and is popular in the petrochemical space, due to its chemical and heat resistance. This rail or tube mount adjusts to fit bars, rails, racks, etc. with square or tubular dimensions ranging from 1.5 inches to 2.5 inches in diameter. There are 2 sets of interlocking brackets which are cinched around the square or round tube, using the imbedded pair of 1/4-20 stainless steel, socket head bolts.

More on Delrin (acetal copolymer)
Acetal copolymers have an excellent balance of properties and processing characteristics, including: melt temperature of 450 °F with little effect on part strength; high tensile and flexural strength, fatigue resistance, and hardness; lubricity is excellent; moisture absorption resistant; good electrical properties, combined with high mechanical strength and a UL electrical rating of 100 °C, qualify these materials for electrical applications requiring long-term stability; excellent resistance to chemicals and solvents; most organic reagents tested have no effect, nor do mineral oil, motor oil, or brake fluids; resistance to strong alkalis is exceptionally good; specimens immersed in boiling 50% sodium hydroxide solution and other strong bases for many months show no property changes; strength of acetal copolymer is only slightly reduced after aging for one year in air at 240 °F; impact strength holds constant for the first six months, and falls off about one-third during the next six-month period; aging in air at 180 °F for two years has little or no effect on properties, and immersion for one year in 180 °F water leaves most properties virtually unchanged. Samples tested in boiling water retain nearly original tensile strength after nine months.
