Cramps are an essential piece of equipment used in the manufacture of both door and window frames. They can be purchased in either the hydraulic or pneumatic format, depending on your preference and company requirements. The hydraulic format is for the heavier joinery and frame type work, they are simple to use and to adjust, and are very good for space saving. The pneumatic format is used for kitchen and bedroom doors and for the cramping of window sashes. It works by pushing the joints tight and once glued, it keeps the sash or door square while the glue dries or staples are being put in.
We stock a range of cramps that are robustly constructed and versatile allowing them to be set up in a variety of different configurations making them especially suitable for creating both standard sized frames and those with more unusual specifications depending on the requirements of your customers.
