Civils & Pipelines

Nina Lovelace previews some of the new products on show at the event.


Lindapter International, a specialist in steelwork connection systems, will be launching its FLS articulated beam clamp at Civils 2000. The company believes the clamp will remove the need to bend threaded rods when installing building services such as heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment.

The FLS allows vertical drop rod connections, even though the supporting steelwork may be inclined at an angle. Its pivot unit allows the threaded rod to rotate or articulate.

Manufactured from high grade alloy steel and coated in corrosion resistant electro-zinc plating, the FLS offers guaranteed safe working load capabilities to 250kg.

Stainless UK

Stainless UK, manufacturer of rock anchors, soil nails and tie bar systems, has recently extended its Grip-Bar range which will be on show at Civils 2000.

The manufacturer claims the Hollow Grip-Bar system is typically intended for applications where a drill bit can be attached to the end of the anchor to allow it to be drilled directly into the ground. The hollow bar can then be used for grout injection, reducing the number of operations required with conventional drilling and grouting.

'Civils 2000 is an excellent platform from which to launch new products and services. The coverage and response ensures that we achieve value for money,' said Stainless UK managing director Mike Wells.
