Lindapter has announced the immediate availability of the Type COM, a new decking fixing for quickly attaching building services to ComFlor® 60 and ComFlor® 80 profiles manufactured by Tata Steel.
Lindapter’s Type COM provides an efficient and economical fixing for suspending a variety of equipment including HVAC systems, fire protection, pipe work, electrical items and lowered ceilings. The CE marked fixing also creates genuine efficiencies for the contractor as it is installed within seconds and is adjustable on-site without the requirement of specialist labour, expensive tools or power.
The latest addition to Lindapter’s extensive range of decking fixings was developed at the request of Tata Steel. The company asked Lindapter to design and manufacture a connection point for its popular ComFlor® 60 and ComFlor® 80 composite decking. The fixing locks inside the dovetail re-entrant channel of the profile and unlike shot firing methods, this zero impact method preserves the strength of the deck and avoids delamination (separating the steel from the concrete) and damage to the deck.
As with all Lindapter products, safe working loads are independently approved and rigorous quality procedures ensure a secure connection with a capacity of 1.25kN per fixing, calculated at a safety factor of 3:1.
The introduction of the Type COM highlights Lindapter’s continued commitment to developing high-quality, cost-effective fixings, and reaffirms the availability of connection solutions to suit all major decking manufacturers.
