Reducing Costs, Increasing Efficiency and Work in the Workshop

In the world of steel fabrication and construction, time and cost savings are always paramount. Lindapter, the leading provider of innovative steel connection solutions, offers a range of products that revolutionize the way fabricators and erectors connect steel sections. 

When compared with traditional methods of connecting structural steel members (i.e.: field drilling for structural bolts, field welding, etc), Lindapter’s proven clamping and blind bolting solutions promote more drilling and welding in the fabricator’s shop where the work is more accurate, more time efficient, and more cost-effective. As a result, on-field steel assembly becomes swift and hassle-free, eliminating costly and problematic field drilling or welding.

Key Benefits

With a legacy spanning 90 years, Lindapter has built a reputation for proven performance. Our products come with ICC-ES certifications, ensuring their reliability and adherence to industry standards. Beyond the quality assurance, Lindapter offers design and detailing assistance, providing customers with expert support to tackle even the most complex connection challenges.

Lindapter Product Focus: Girder Clamps

One of Lindapter's flagship products is the Girder Clamp, a versatile solution that replaces the need for on field drilling or welding when connecting steel sections. By simply clamping two steel sections together, high-strength and permanent connections are achieved, significantly reducing installation time and labor costs.

The Girder Clamps can be used with virtually any shape or size of steel section, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. Whether it's for tensile loading, slip resistance, or combined loads, the Girder Clamps offer flexibility without compromising on performance. With straightforward installation steps, using standard hand tools, the need for costly and time-consuming surveys is minimized.

Lindapter Product Focus: Hollo-Bolt®

Hollo-Bolt® is another leading product from Lindapter that expedites structural steel connections. This expansion bolt swiftly connects steel sections to pre-drilled Hollow Structural Sections (HSS), requiring access from just one side. By offering an efficient alternative to welding or through-bolting in the field, the Hollo-Bolt reduces construction time and labor costs significantly.

Available in two versions – the original design for general hollow section connections and the larger High Clamping Force (HCF) for stronger structural connections – the Hollo-Bolt boasts remarkable versatility. Compatible with various steel section shapes and sizes, it can be customized to suit specific loading conditions for different applications. As with other Lindapter products, the Hollo-Bolt installation is straightforward and doesn't require specialized equipment.

Lindapter Product Focus: Floor Fixings

For securing steel flooring to supporting steelwork without the need for on-site drilling or welding, Lindapter offers a range of innovative fixings. The FloorFast™, Grate-Fast™, and Type 1055 solutions ensure secure connections with easy installation steps. This eliminates the need for costly scaffolding or elevated floors, saving both time and money during construction.

Additional Technical Support Services

Lindapter goes beyond providing exceptional products. The company offers comprehensive design and support services, tailoring our solutions to suit each customer's unique application. Through our "Engineered Solutions" service, Lindapter's team of qualified Structural and Technical Support Engineers collaborate with clients from concept design to completion, ensuring optimal results.
