TW Bolt Testing Terms Explained

TW Bolt Testing Terms Explained

The unique and innovative nature of the thin wall bolt helps to make it flexible and convenient, but it also dictates that particular criteria have to be in place if the bolts in question are to function properly. The meaning of the various measurements applied to the bolt, and the application of these figures, has to be understood.

The above illustration conveys these measurements, and the menu below offers individual explanations. If you’d like to know more, or ask exactly how you can use thin wall bolts, please get in touch using the number below or email us here.

Minimum Fixing Thickness

The minimum fixing thickness is a measure of the shortest distance which a particular thin wall bolt can fix. Combining the thickness of the substances being fixed in place will produce this figure.

Maximum Fixing Thickness

The maximum fixing thickness is a measure of the largest distance which a particular bolt can fix. Combining the thickness of the substances being fixed in place will produce this figure. The maximum fixing thickness can be extended, however, through the use of a kit of extension sleeves. Please contact us to learn more about this option.

Tensile Strength

Tensile strength is a measure of the force needed to make a bolt fail when it is bearing a tensile load.

Depth Clearance

The depth clearance is a measure of the smallest space required within a cavity wall in order for the Thin Wall Blind Bolt anchor to function correctly. It has to be applied exactly to ensure that the bolt doesn’t impact on the opposite wall prior to the anchor being deployed.
