Lindapter’s M12 Hollo-Bolts were specified for attaching the facade’s supporting framework to the steel hollow sections of the office building.
The cladding contractor, needed a way to secure the steel framework to structural hollow sections in order to support the 500kg glass panels. They sought a strong and reliable connection method that could be quickly and easily repeated on all eight floors.
After researching several connection products, the engineer specified Hollo-Bolts and brackets with slotted holes to allow the panels to be adjusted during installation, while eliminating the need for welding on site which would have damaged the protective coatings. He was confident that the Hollo-Bolt was the correct choice for the application because of its high strength capacity, ease of installation and anti-corrosion protection. The Hollo-Bolt has a range of independent technical approvals, such as the CE mark which provided further confidence for the contractor.
