What is a heavy-duty flooring clamp?
|A heavy-duty flooring clamp is mainly used when laying floorboards, in order to hold them in tight alignment. The clamp prevents any gaps from forming between the floorboards, helping to provide a perfect finish.|
|The clamp is strong and robust, meaning it is used by both DIYers and professional flooring contractors.|
|The clamp works by gripping on to a supporting joist, and pushing against the edge of a floorboard with its 'shoe', until it is firmly against the adjoining floorboard. Once secure, the two boards can be nailed together.|
The clamp is most commonly used on wooden floorboards which use a tongue and groove joint. It is designed to be used in pairs, with one clamp placed along the edge of each floorboard. If a floorboard is particularly large, multiple clamps can be used for additional support.
What sizes are available?
A heavy-duty flooring clamp is only available in one size.
It is made to fit on to joists ranging from 38mm (1.5" approx.) to 89mm (3.5" approx.) in thickness.
