Lindapter steel fixings for modular construction

Hollo-Bolts by Lindapter were specified for The Spurn Discovery Centre in the UK. The rooms were pre-fabricated and shipped to site as complete modular units.

Once they arrived on site, the contractor used Hollo-Bolts to connect the structural hollow section frameworks together. The Hollo-Bolt was selected because of its high strength capacity and its range of independent technical accreditations, including the CE Mark approval.

It was also chosen because it is a proven method of providing a fast and convenient method of attaching steel-framed modular rooms together, requiring access from one side of the steel only and without the need for any special installation tools or equipment, which results in an efficient construction schedule.

This project is featured in Lindapter’s new guide to the modular and off-site construction industry. The booklet explains how contractors can maximise efficiencies and control costs by using Lindapter fixing systems. It includes typical Lindapter applications in the offsite construction industry, such as joining the structural framework of modular rooms together, connecting balcony extensions, securing steel frameworks to ground screws and attaching cable trays. The brochure also uses real-life examples to demonstrate how Lindapter fixings can be used at each stage of the modular project from transport and lifting, through to securing the framework and modular rooms.

Since 1934 Lindapter has been pioneering steel connections that eliminate the need for ‘hot working’, meaning that there is no damage to the existing steelwork and no need for area closures or hot work permits.
