Lindapter was established in 1934 as a small business and has now become the market leader in steelwork fixings with a worldwide reputation. Continual improvement of products ensures that Lindapter continues to be at the forefront in the marketplace.
As the vast majority of Lindapter products require no site drilling or welding steel sections can, if and when necessary, be reused ensuring both current and future environmental and sustainability issues can be met.
Product Quality is one of the main life lines of the
001 since 1986.
Lindapter steelwork fixings can be used in a wide variety of applications for connecting together steel sections of whatever shape and size. Most popular in this section is the Girder Clamp which as with most Lindapter products requires no on site drilling or welding saving both time and money.
- No on site drilling or welding
- 'Hot Working' not required
- Less working at height
- Only hand tools required to install
- Site adjustable
- Power not required
- Ability to deconstruct and multi-cycle rather than demolish
Components of a Girder Clamp
4) Packing Piece - In combination with the clamps mentioned above these parts increase the tail length to enable the product to sit correctly on the beam
5) Location Plate - This is an essential part of the Girder Clamp assembly that enables all the components to be located in the correct position. The hole centres and plate thicknesses are calculated to suit the individual application.
This Table Beneath shows tensile and frictional load capabilities for a standard four bolt Girder Clamp using 4 bolts and 8 clamps at a 90 Degree crossover angle.
|Tensile / for 4 Bolts kN||23.2||29.2||59.0||78.8||160.0||250.0|
Friction / for 4 Bolts kN
Lindapter Type A - Steelwork clamp with recessed top to hold the bolt head captive whilst the nut is tightened. The Skirt prevents the clamp rotating during installation.
Lindapter Type B - Steelwork clamp with flat top which allows the bolt head or nut to be rotated.
Lindapter Type AF - High friction clamp with recessed top to hold bolt head captive whilst the nut is tightened, this can be combined with a type CF. The skirt prevents the clamp rotating during installation.
Lindapter Type LR - Self adjusting clamp for various flange thicknesses and slopes up to 15 degrees. The leg of the saddle prevents the clamp rotating during installation.
Lindapter Type LS - Self adjusting clamp for various flange thicknesses and slopes up to 10 degrees. The special serrations on the tail prevent the clamp rotating during installation.
Lindapter Type BR - Versatile clamp for steel beams or rails. The skirt prevents the clamp rotating during installation.
In the late 1940's Lindapter revolutionised the concept of 'blind' fixing, or where limited access is available, with the development of the Lindibolt. Some time later, following the introduction and wide acceptance of hollow section steelwork, the range was expanded to include the Hollo-Bolt.
Lindapter Type HB Hollo Bolt - Suitable for hollow sections, tubes and where access is available from one side only. For high corrosion protection the Hollo-Bolt comes with additional JS500 protection as standard or hot dipped galvanised.
Lindapter composite decking fixings have all been designed in conjunction with the various decking manufacturers to ensure they fulfil the necessary requirements from ease of installation to carrying capacity. All the fixings are designed to fit inside the dovetail shaped re-entrant channel which is common throughout all the profiles and give a secure point from which building services can be suspended with guaranteed capacities.
- Speed of installation
- No special tools required
- No weakening of the decking profiles
- no damage of the surfaces of the decking
- No possibility of delamination
- Adjustable and easily removable
Lindapter's support fixing range offers a series of ideal solutions for all building services. This includes the suspension of HVAC equipment, pipe work, fire protection/sprinkler systems, suspended ceilings and all manner of electrical equipment such as cable tray and ladder. These products have been designed to give speed and ease of installation to reduce time and keep costs under control.
Lindapter Type F3 - A two part flange clamp with large clamping range. The bolt can be substituted with either drop rod or J bolts.
Lindapter Type HCW31 - A universal purlin clip suitable for multiple different applications.
When designing the floor fixing range of products for chequer plate and both square and rectangular open bar grating Lindapter combined speed with ease of installation. None of the products require any site drilling or welding to be done and can easily be installed from above the flooring; this means no requirement for scaffold towers, access platforms or MEWP hire giving easier compliance with the onerous work at height regulations.
Lindapter Type FF Floorfast - The product consists of a malleable iron body casting with a countersunk socket screw. The eccentric stepped web of the casting allows it to lock under the steelwork providing full face contact when torque is applied.
Lindapter Type GF - Grate-fast - Grating Fixing for rectangular open bar grating with cast main body giving superior clamping force.
Lindapter Type GF3030 - Grating clamp for instant installation requiring no tools.
