Composite Floor Decks
Manufactured in the UK and readily available, Tata Steel's ComFlor offers the most extensive, cost-effective and ef
A major design consideration in any building’s construction is the requirement for building services and how to integrate any required services easily and effectively at the earliest stage of the design.
Designed and manufactured by Lindapter, the new anchor, entitled ‘Type COM’, is an anchor fixing designed to provide an efficient and economical fixing for suspending a variety of equipment including HVAC systems, fire protection, pipework, electrical items’ and lower ceilings.
The shape of the dovetail on the ComFlor® 60 and ComFlor® 80 floor deck profiles has been utilised to accommodate the steel wedge component which when attached securely into the dovetail allows services to be suspended from the ComFlor® slab, simply and easily.
Wayne Golden, Lindapter International said “The Type COM is the latest addition to Lindapter’s extensive range of decking fixings. It was developed at Tata Steel’s request when they asked Lindapter to design and manufacture a connection point for suspending services from their popular ComFlor 60 and ComFlor 80 composite floor deck profiles. 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 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 1.25kN Safe Working Load per fixing”.
