Online steelwork fixing selector provides fast answers

03 January 2007

Lindapter has launched a second generation of its online steelwork fixings design software, adding many more beam sizes and improving the user interface. The tool will present the correct fixings for most common applications within a couple of minutes. Users are automatically emailed a drawing of the solution for their project records, and can also request a quote. The tool is located at

Called Steelwork Fixings Designer, Lindapter's software uses images and pop-out menus to take users rapidly through the selection process. Just three steps are needed: select the type of steel to be connected to from images showing wide flange, S-beam, channel and truss sections. A second screen then graphically shows the most common forms of connection. Click on one, and the user then just needs to identify the top and bottom beam sizes from a pop-out menu and enter the load, and the fixing solution is calculated.

Lindapter's fixing solution - which requires no welding or on-site drilling - is displayed in the form of a 2D drawing, with the source data and fixing bill-of-materials detailed alongside. This drawing is automatically emailed to the user, and kept on file at Lindapter to help with any queries a user might have. The system will also generate a quote by clicking on a button above the drawing.
