Self-adjusting stainless steel clamping system for harsh environments

24 June 2009

Steelwork fixing specialist, Lindapter has introduced the Type LS, a premium self-adjusting clamping system manufactured from high-grade stainless steel, and designed for use in harsh environments. Dubbed the Claw by Lindapter’s R&D team, due to the aggressive curved and pointed shape, the clamp is suitable for various flange thicknesses and slopes up to 10°.

The latest Type LS can be installed without damaging the protective coatings of steelwork. Specialist tools or packing pieces are not needed, dramatically improving ease of use, assembly speed, and of course, labour costs. The Type LS further enhances the Lindapter range, enabling stainless steel fixings to be available as standard stocked items, greatly improving delivery times and unit costs in comparison to ‘Special’ made-to-order products.

Cast in stainless steel equivalent to grade 316, the fixing is perfectly suited to withstand corrosive industrial atmospheres. The tail spans over slotted holes with special serrations to prevent the clamp rotating during installation. The new Type LS is available in sizes ranging from M10 to M20, with the largest featuring a clamping flexibility to fit flanges between 3 to 30mm in thickness. The M20 has a tensile safe working load of 18kN per bolt, calculated at a 5:1 factor of safety.
