Case Studies

Hollo-Bolts® Specified for EDF’s Research and Development Centre.

Sectors: Structural, Architectural
Applications: Securing glass panels onto the roof


The brief required a strong connection to secure the roofing framework to the structural hollow section on the new circular buildings. After VP & Green Engineers evaluated several connection methods including self-drilling bolts, they specified Lindapter’s CE marked Hollo-Bolt due to its high capacity and corrosion resistance.

Decorative glass panels were mounted onto the steel framework that connected back to structural hollow sections using aluminium brackets and Lindapter’s Hollo-Bolts. The Hollo-Bolts facilitated a fast installation without the need for on-site drilling or welding.
The 52,000m² research and development centre is in the East Campus of Paris-Saclay. Situated near prestigious training, education and research centres, it is ranked in the top 8 most important innovation clusters in the world.

As a British manufacturer with over 80 years’ experience of designing and manufacturing steelwork fixings, Lindapter is proud to have industry leading product approvals.
