The market leader of steelwork fixings has launched the revolutionary Hollo-Bolt Flush Fit, a cavity fixing that creates immense opportunity for architectural design as the bolt is concealed within the steelwork with no protruding bolt head or collar.
Lindapters latest innovation merges the technical advantages of their distinguished Hollo-Bolt with the aesthetic benefits of a discreet fixing, meeting the artistic requirements of modern construction, whilst maintaining safe working loads. The fixing is suitable for hollow sections or conventional steelwork where access is available from one side only. Typical Hollo-Bolt applications include: primary and secondary steelwork, bridges, cladding, balconies, towers and masts, staircases and handrails. Installation is fast and simple using Lindapters innovative installation nut (included free) allowing the Flush Fit to be installed without a requirement for specialist skills or equipment.
The extension of the Hollo-Bolt range signifies Lindapters strategic alignment with advances in modern steelwork construction, Managing Director, Sabine Reimann commented With almost endless opportunities to shape and sculpture steel, we wanted to create a fixing to further release an architects artistic freedom. The Hollo-Bolt Flush Fit provides a best of both worlds solution, complementing contemporary design whilst providing the strength required in steel construction. It appears to be a concept welcomed by industry professionals, with the new Hollo-Bolt recently shortlisted for the NCE product innovation of the year award 2008.
The fixing is available in sizes M8, M10 and M12, with safe working tensile loads of up to 10.5kN and sheer capacities of up to 15kN per bolt. Materials and finishes include JS 500 as standard, bright zinc plated and stainless steel.
Established in 1934, Lindapter is the pioneer and market leader of steelwork clamping systems, eliminating the requirement to weld. In comparison to traditional connection methods, a Lindapter solution allows a more rapid installation, significantly reduced costs whilst preserving the integrity of the steelwork. Experienced engineers offer unrivalled support, including a free design service for the entire product range that includes steelwork, cavity, support and floor fixings.
