Lindapter has extended its product range with the AMD Decking Fixing, developed to allow building services to be suspended from decking profiles manufactured by Anglian Metal Deck.
Lindapter says that the new fixing creates genuine efficiencies for the contractor as it is installed within seconds and is adjustable onsite without the requirement of specialist labour, expensive tools or power.
The AMD wedge is designed to fit inside the dovetail re-entrant channel of the composite decking profile and held in place by a locking plate and locknut. In contrast to shot firing methods, this zero-impact fixing preserves the strength of the decking profile and avoids delamination (separating the steel from the concrete) and 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 1.00kN per fixing, calculated at a safety factor of 3:1.
The Type AMD is available in sizes M6, M8 and M10 through UK distributors. For full specification and installation information download the new technical datasheet from the Lindapter website.
