Orbiplate concrete connector
- Reid Construction Systems
Orbiplate™ is a patented assembly which allows the erection crew to fasten structural steel components to precast elements or precast elements to in situ concrete.
No drilling during installation saves time, labour costs and the associated problems with hitting reinforcing. It also removes the need for weld plates.
All welding is completed off site and the element comes ready to be lifted. Orbiplate is aligned with REID™ Metric Inserts, either TIM3⁄46 or TIM20 which have been cast into the main concrete structure.
Once the crane has lifted and set the structure, the installation crew connect the steel to the concrete with a M3⁄46 or M20 8.8 bolt. Only a spanner is required to make a structural connection.
The Orbiplate is mild steel with a zinc plate finish.
