Lindapter cavity fixings provide a simple, cost-effective solution when fixing to rectangular or circular hollow section steel, or to steelwork where access is available from one side only. They are ideal to use with any steel structures and eliminate the requirement for using unsightly welding or strapping.
When using Lindapter cavity fixings, installation time and costs are reduced, as they are easy to install without specialist skills, equipment or on-site power.
Type HB - Hollo-Bolt
The Lindapter Hollo-Bolt is a patented method of securing to square, rectangular or circular hollow section steel, or to conventional steelwork where access is available from one side only.
The Hollo-Bolt offers a tremendous reduction in installation time and costs over traditional methods, as well as giving the specifier absolute confidence through guaranteed loads with a built in factor of safety.
The larger Hollo-Bolt sizes, M16 & M20 are optimised for structural connections and feature a patented High Clamping Force (HCF) mechanism to produce three times more clamping force than the same sized product without the mechanism. The significance of increased clamping force is illustrated in the video below:
Awarded the Design Council's Millennium Products status for innovation in connecting to hollow section, the Hollo-Bolt also has third party endorsements from Corus and the UK's Steel Construction Institute.
Typical Hollo-Bolt Applications
Typical Hollo-Bolt applications include the connection and suspension of:
- Primary Connections
- Secondary Connections
- Tower and Masts
- Staircases and Handrails
- Glazing and Roofs
- Modular Buildings
For aggressive environments, the Hollo-Bolt comes with JS500 or HDG protection as standard. For more aggressive environments Sheraplex and Stainless Steel are available.
A variety of finishes and colours are available.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
