Lindapter has announced the launch of the Type COM, a new decking fixing for quickly attaching building services to ComFlor 60 and ComFlor 80 profiles manufactured by Tata Steel.
The 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 fixing can be installed within seconds and is adjustable without the requirement of specialist labour, expensive tools or power.
At the request of Tata Steel, the Type COM was developed as a connection point for the 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 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 new Type COM highlights the company’s continued commitment to developing high quality, cost effective fixings, and reaffirms the availability of connection solutions to suit all major decking manufacturers.
