Lindapter, known for manufacturing non-weld steelwork connection systems for over 75 years, have announced the expansion of their decking fixing range with the development of the Type MF, allowing building services to be suspended from Metfloor 60 and 80 profiles, produced by CMF.
Lindapter highlights that the new fixing creates genuine efficiencies for the contractor as it is installed within seconds and is adjustable onsite without the requirement of specialist labour, expensive tools or power. Contractors have already placed orders for the £1.45bn Westfield Stratford City development and the new £8.75m A&E unit at Withybush General Hospital.
The Lindapter concept delivers an economical connection method suitable for the installation of a variety of HVAC systems, fire protection, pipe work, electrical equipment and lowered ceilings. In contrast to shot-firing methods, Lindapter states that the Type MF preserves the strength of the decking profile with no possibility of delamination (separating the steel from the concrete). As with all Lindapter products, safe working loads are independently approved and rigorous quality procedures ensure a secure connection with a capacity of 1.47kN per fixing, calculated at a safety factor of 3:1.
Lindapters latest addition confirms its commitment to providing high quality and cost-effective building services connections, compatible with all major decking manufacturers including CMF, Corus, Kingspan, SMD and Richard Lees.
The Type MF is available now in sizes M6, M8 and M10. For further information please contact Lindapter on +44 (0)1274 521 444, or visit www.lindapter.com.
