How do Lindapters work?

The steelwork clamping systems from Lindapter were quickly recognised as effective alternatives to traditional drilling and welding methods. Lindapter clamps can be used to suspend a cable management system, provide structural support or secure metal beams.

Providing alternatives to various purposes and areas of fixing work, Lindapter’s products are so well received because they:

  • Reduce costs – only hand tools are required for installation
  • Save time
  • Eliminate the need to drill or weld the steelwork
  • Don’t cause damage to other structures
  • Don’t require a power source
  • Are adjustable
  • Are durable, safe and stable – and simple to use!

The Armafix team have a good understanding of how the products work and which to use. We can offer advice and guidance on the best choice of Lindapter products for your work.

How to use Lindapters

The exact method of use will vary depending on the Lindapter type in question.

The fixings vary in function and type, being used for a variety of purposes, usually connecting and fastening components to metal decking, metal framing systems, steelwork or even fixing vital supporting elements of large structures like Tower Bridge in London.

Smaller scale work might see Lindapter connections being used for secondary steel work, cable tray or pipe supports.

The Lindapter decking fixing clamps that we supply in our Leeds store are ideal for cable tray suspensions and are essentially a specialist wedge nut.

To install the fixing, threaded rod is screwed through the locking plate and wedge, or bracket depending on which Lindapter model is being used. Insert the wedge into the decking channel, where it is locked into position by rotating it. The installation is then secured with a nut or locknut.
