HALFEN POWERCLICK Modular Pipe Support Systems
Available in Australia exclusively from Leviat, HALFEN POWERCLICK is a pre-assembled, durable, safe and highly adaptable modular pipe support solution for various loads and piping applications.
The HALFEN POWERCLICK range includes a wide range of modular pipe support systems, pipe clamp & shoe accessories in different finishes. All POWERCLICK framing channels and bolts are toothed and form an interlocking connection. Clamshell design connectors provide excellent load transfer, in both shear and moment.
Developed for the chemical industry nearly 20 years ago, HALFEN POWERCLICK offers an innovative, time and cost saving alternative to traditional pipe supports made from secondary steel. It is manufactured from highly corrosion resistant hot-dip galvanised steel (S235JR). The zinc coating layer of > 50µm provides a nominal service life of 25 years, assuming an annual zinc loss of 2 µm (corrosivity category C4).

Pipe enclosing components like pipe shoes and clamps are available from the POWERCLICK accessory range and a comprehensive range of cantiliver arms completes the POWERCLICK range.
Only four core lightweight components from the POWERCLICK 63 system can form a multitude of supports, Goalposts, L or T shapes, etc, and they can all be handled manually, without the need for special tools or lifting equipment.
POWERCLICK Base Plate
One base plate in three sizes fits any standard beam flange width from 75–300mm. The base plate opening fully encloses the channel and is attached to the steel structure using a universal beam clamp. The base plate can also be attached to concrete using a post drilled anchor from the HALFEN range. The channel slot can be positioned to face in any direction, by simply changing the location of the bolts in the base plate.
POWERCLICK Framing Channel
The toothed, slotted framing channels are available in 3 and 6 m standard lengths. A 41/22 channel is laser-welded into the 63/63 section. This closed profile resists a moment of torsional inertia equal to a steel HEB 160 beam, with much less weight.
POWERCLICK Elbow Connector
Only 2 types of elbow connector are required to make nearly any type of support shape in the POWERCLICK 63 system. The elbow connectors fully enclose the connecting framing channels. By changing the positioning bolts of the elbow connector, the channel slot can be easily made to face in the required direction. Teeth in the channel and on the POWERCLICK bolts provide a slip-resistant mechancial connection.
POWERCLICK Beam Clamp
The universal POWERCLICK beam clamp adjusts to fit any beam with a flange thickness of 5-40mm. The four hardened teeth bite into the flange without affecting the corrosion protection, providing positive load transfer.
With their new European Technical Assessment (ETA), Halfen HZA serrated anchor channels fulfil all requirements of AS 5216:2021 and can be used in projects across Australia.
Leviat has released an enhanced version of its popular Ancon Shearfix design software that enables engineers to maintain a flat concrete slab at column heads by reinforcing the area against punching shear with a prefabricated, stud-rail system.
