A big market has matured for steelwork dealings with much along the line of repairings of the Lindapter type. The steelwork market began with all the fixings being long-term and with no chance of addition or variation. Contact Landosol for your steelworks projects, especially when you need specialised welding Durban.
Initially the steel beams and plates were fitted by rivets and bolts in fixed positions through drilled holes. As steelwork advanced the beams and channels altered and there became a need for more flexible repairings which could be included later on or altered, as the requirements altered. These now required a new system of repairings if a set of shelves needed to be hung from channel or equipment or signs fitted. This new system appeared in a set of clamps and wedges that fitted into channels or clamped the different additional pieces together to form the supports or bases required.
In supported and suspended decking floorings they are used to clamp services to the floor without damaging the stability of the floor.
These wedges and clamps needed to be strong and irreversible up until the repairings are released and they are now made from steel or malleable iron and checked to the loads needed. The services can be laid just where they need to go and the clamps are of such range that they can easily be utilized to clamp trays, channels and much like the existing structure.
The clamps and wedges are of such a friction that they will not move under the most extreme pressures. They can feature swivel joints to meet reversals and can be fitted utilizing all the normal tools an engineer will have. They do not require any purpose made tooling. They can also be dismantled quickly and re-fixed where needed with no major distress’s.
, if there is a requirement to secure 2 girders together this can be done with the minimum of difficulty while still keeping the stability of the connection.. For the sign company a framework can be assembled and all the letters then included and protected by a selection of clamps and wedges with no option to external power tools. Since of the adaptability of the connection dealings with and the fact that power tools are not required, it is probably one of the simplest systems to fit.
