Case Study

Basketball Sculpture

Sectors: Architecture,
Applications: Securing a basketball sculpture to the top of a store in New York City.

Summary: Lindapter connections were used throughout the new store for securing both structural elements and decorative pieces.

Dillion Works contacted Lindapter's technical team as they needed a reliable connection to secure a sculpture at the top of the national basketball store that would not require lead abatement. After speaking to one of Lindapter's technical engineers, they decided to use Lindapter's high slip resistant Type AAF Girder Clamp to safely connect sections of ‘H’ channel to form a basketball shaped sculpture at the top of the basketball merchandise store.

Type AAF clamps self-adjust to suit a wide range of beam flange thicknesses, allowing a fast and convenient installation using standard hand tools. Avoiding drilling and welding meant that there was no need for area closures, lead abatement or specialist labor and equipment, saving the contractor time and money on the installation process.
