    OrbiPlate overcomes the major headache that comes with bolted connections, getting the holes to line up! The methods traditionally used to overcome this were time consuming, costly and often structurally inadequate.

    The patented OrbiPlate system is used when connecting steel to steel or steel to concrete elements and delivers connection tolerances of up to 20mm around the centre of the connection. It also provides the ability to achieve fine locational accuracy when positioning each steel member.

    OrbiPlate is quick and easy to install. The steel member is supplied to site with a pre-formed hole (70mm), which can be punched or cut at the centre of the connection location. The main washer is then placed over the hole, rotated to locate the slot over the ferrule, then secured using the class 8.8 bolt through the small washer. The bolt can be positioned anywhere along the elongated slot, providing up to 20mm tolerance in all directions.
