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!

Choosing your Lindapter fixing will depend on your intended use and where it will be implemented.

At Armafix, we currently supply the following Lindapter Decking Fixings:

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.

Where do you use a Lindapter Multiwedge 2?

Lindapter Type MW2 Multiwedge 2 decking fixing is used for suspending threaded rod from MD60 and MD80 ceiling profiles which are manufactured by Kingspan Structural Products.

(1) This clever two part fixing comprises of a bracket and a Multi-Nut which you pre-assemble onto the threaded rod. Once assembled, on side of the bracket is inserted into the re-entrant channel of the decking.

(2) The Multiwedge 2 is then snapped into position inside the decking and the assembly can then be slid into the desire position along the length of re-entrant channel.

(3) With the fixing now in place, you simply push and turn the Multi-Nut clockwise until it locks into the channel walls. (4) Finally you tighten the hex nut beneath the assembly and you can then attach your services to the bottom of the threaded rod using the relevant brackets.

Armafix Provide Lindapter Solution

Armafix recently enjoyed the task of helping a global manufacturer of steam boilers to solve the challenge of securing Unistrut to a cavity ceiling.

The customer had already installed the channel to the ceiling using ramnuts and called us for help when the fixings started pulling out of the cavity.

After a quick diagnosis we came up with the solution of utilising a Lindapter Toggle Clamp.  The cavity was a 100mm gap filled with foam with a hard surface at the top and bottom.  Using a 180mm length of threaded rod and the unique Toggle Clamp, the customer was able to undo the previous fixing and then insert the Lindapter fixing into the hole.  Once in situ, the channel was then slid back into position and the rod dropped through the slots in the channel.  A nut and washer was then attached creating very strong and durable fixing.
