They can only be used with the annular type of convuled stainless steel hose.

Handrail Fittings

Interclamp is a versatile range of malleable iron galvanised slip-on pipe / tube fittings. Typical clamp applications are handrailing, hand railing, safety guardrails, fencing, playground equipment, shopfitting, 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.

Five different size ranges of Interclamp are available as shown in the table, hence a suitable size can be selected for any particular application. Interclamps are easily identified by a type number of each design eg. 125 followed by a size code eg. D48, the latter part of which corresponds with the approximate outside diameter of the tube to be used (48.3mm = 1 ½" nominal bore in this case). Hence a 90° elbow suitable for an 1 ½" nominal bore tube in this example would be denoted as a 125-D48.


We can supply a wide range of high quality valves for many industries such as Gas, Water, Heating, Ventilation, Air conditioning , Steam, Process, Power and Agriculture. We also carry many types of valves directly from stock such as Brass Compression Valves, Butterfly Valves, Forged Steel Valves and Knife Gate Valves.
