Steel fixings complete architectural vision
Lindapter’s new Hollo-Bolt Flush Fit was specified as the steelwork connection in HafenCity’s Brooktorkai quarter in Hamburg, securing a wide spanning glass roof and a multi storey windowed elevation without the fixings being visible.
The Hollo-Bolt Flush Fit was used to construct the glazing support frame with a connection design that included splice joints inside the adjoining pre-drilled SHS sections, allowing the fixings to be simply inserted and tightened with a torque wrench for a rapid installation.
This solution required no specialist equipment or labour and reduced the amount of working from height. Lindapter said the resulting steelwork is not only structurally sound, but aesthetically pleasing, presenting a clean symmetrical appearance.
