When it comes to fabricating steel-to-steel connections, welding is often the default option. But in many applications, the use of fasteners can provide a faster, more cost-effective alternative that eliminates the time and cost of drilling or welding.
Lindapter® steel connecting solutions can be installed with standard hand tools, dramatically reducing the time required for installation, and greatly simplifying the inspection process. Other benefits of these clamping solutions include reduced labor costs, and on-site adjustability, with no potential damage to steel sections.
