Connect Steel Sections Effortlessly with the Type AAF Clamp
Lindapter, the inventor of the Girder Clamp and Hollo-Bolt, has developed the Type AAF – a new steelwork clamp for connecting steel sections, offering adjustability, anti-corrosion protection and high load capacities, even in low temperature environments.
Lindapter’s flagship product is the latest addition to its High Slip Resistance (HSR) family of clamps designed for high load requirements including frictional, tensile and combined load applications. The ‘Adjustable AF’ features an innovative 2-part design that self-adjusts to suit a range of flange thicknesses, allowing contractors to use a single product type for multiple connection requirements. Typical applications include securing steel framed roofs, heavy pipe supports, mechanical handling equipment and bridge strengthening apparatus.
Specify a Safe and Reliable Connection
Manufactured from SG iron to EN 1563 with specific low temperature properties, the Type AAF provides resistance in cold environments where impact strength is important. Durability also extends to corrosion protection as the product is supplied with a hot dip galvanised coating as standard.
Engineers can be confident that they are specifying a safe and reliable connection as load capacities have been independently verified by TÜV NORD.
Install in Minutes! Reduce Your Installation Times and Labour Costs
Compared to conventional methods such as drilling or welding, the Type AAF can be installed in minutes without the need for hot work permits, reducing construction time and labour costs. For additional convenience during installation, Direct Tension Indicators (DTIs) can be used to ensure the correct tension is applied to the fasteners.
The Type AAF is available now from your local distributor in sizes M12 and M16. Lindapter has published a new brochure ‘High Slip Resistance Clamps by Lindapter’ to support the product launch.
