Our boltless side rail support system allows the steel erector to assemble the side rail supports without the need for tools, nuts, bolts or washers, therefore considerably reducing installation time. The system comprises a 55mm deep channel with two new end fixings, a locator end and a lock end, which simply clip together through the standard holes in the rail. The system comes complete with a start/finishing cleat leaving a tidy flush finish removing the need for countersunk bolts, countersunk holes & packing plates.
The system is currently available for our 142, 172, 202, 232 and 262 section series.
3. Subsequent boltless side rail support system are then installed with the male end inserted in the upper rail and the female end clicked into the lower clipped rail support. The top rail is finished with a start/stop cleat.
