Product Design

The Camlok brand was founded on original, innovative British design and manufacture. It evolved from a general industrial need to lift and transfer steel plate either horizontally, vertically or a combination of both, in a secure and safe manner. This was achieved by using an ingenious 'cam' and jaw mechanism to positively lock the steel plate into a clamping device so it may be suspended from a crane hook.

The original 'cam-lock' principle has led to the vast spectrum of lifting clamps available today, for example: plate clamps, beam clamps, rail clamps, girder clamps, piling clamps, scissor grabs and other handling devices. This heritage generated the capability and understanding for Camlok to lead the way in engineering special non-standard lifting solutions for technically demanding applications.

All products are designed for easy repair and parts replacement, providing a lifetime of faithful service and performance and are manufactured in the UK to world-class standards.
