Rapid rail system aids quick steel assembly
The new Rapid Rail Support System launched by Metsec is said to allow steel erectors to assemble the side rail supports without the need for tools, nuts, bolts or washers, thereby reducing installation time.
The system comprises a new 55mm deep channel with two new end fixings, a locater end and a lock end, which clip together through the standard holes provided in the rail. The system comes complete with a start/ finishing cleat leaving a flush finish and removing the need for countersunk bolts, countersunk holes or packing plates.
The new system is currently available for Metsec 142, 172, 202, 232 and 262 section series and the company said it has already been trialled on several major projects.
