Energy Bunker

Sectors: Civil Engineering
Applications: Securing a solar panel façade

Summary: Lindapter’s Type B Steelwork Fixings have been used to connect the aluminium profile supporting a solar panel façade on the south side of Wilhelmsburg’s newly renovated ‘Energy Bunker’, an IBA Hamburg project. The conversion of the 1940s flak bunker, into a biomass heat and power plant, symbolises the climate protection campaign across the region and will produce energy for thousands of local homes.

Lindapter’s global distribution network enabled the fast and efficient supply of 800 M12 hot dip galvanised Type B Steelwork Clamps with clipped washers. These products were specified for the efficient assembly of the aluminium frame to be fastened to the Energy Bunker’s south side before having a 1600m2 façade of solar panels secured to it.

Lindapter Steelwork Clamps are quick and easy to install, using simple hand tools, and were therefore ideal for this application where the aluminium sections needed to be assembled at a great height. The adjustability of the Type B clamps allowed for precise alignment and the clamps caused no damage to existing beams.
