Save up to 40% fixing time with our RapidRail® alternative to strut

BIS RapidRail® – a light rail alternative to strut

RapidRail® is our unique light rail fixing system that we developed as a lightweight, easy to install alternative to traditional strut. For many installations like standard plumbing and heating pipework, ventilation pipes and cable trays, heavy and bulky 41×41 strut is not required.

Benefits of using a light rail

Using a lightweight alternative can provide many benefits including:

  • Easier to install – especially when used in overhead applications, a lighter rail is easier to handle, and is less likely to result in accident or injury
  • Easier to store and transport – as well as being lighter, our RapidRail® is available in 2m lengths which makes it easier to store, carry and transport.
  • Environmental benefits – a light rail is more environmentally friendly as it uses less steel
  • Fast-fit accessories for faster installation – with a full range of fast-fit accessories, installations can be made a lot quicker than with traditional strut systems, saving hours or even days on the jobsite.

Save hours on your installations

The unique benefit of the RapidRail® system is the time-saving gained from the pre-assembled slide nuts. Instead of using loose nuts, bolts and washers, our pre-assembled slide nuts and hammerfix are 3in1 (or 4in1) parts that simply push and twist into the rail. No messing around with loose parts!

You can also adjust the positioning with ease by simply sliding the nut in the rail before tightening.

Case study installation

Craig at CR Plumbing and Heating is a self-employed plumbing and heating engineer who has been using BIS RapidRail to install heating and hot water system conversions like the one here. He told us he saved hours on this installation due to the time-saving hammerfix and slide nuts.

“This system has been a great discovery for me! The benefit of not having to use loose nuts, bolts and washers is a huge time-saver on larger installations. The other accessories that come with this rail are also great, making it really versatile. The cantilever arms allow pipes to be run at multiple depths against the wall with ease.”
