Hollow Section Bolts

for Hollow Sections

It’s easy to understand the widespread use of hollow sections within the construction industry. Whether they are rectangular, square or circular, hollow sections provide uniform geometry and construction and so guarantee consistent strength across all axes.

The hollow construction also means that the sections in question are lightweight and frequently more aesthetically pleasing than other options, and are torsionally stiff.This means that they make the ideal choice for supporting loads such as cladding or infill panels, being able to deal with any shifting, uneven loads or the twisting forces such loads might generate.

Another advantage of hollow sections is that the enclosed nature of the interior makes it impossible for debris to collect there. In many environments, particularly those in which falling leaves or loose litter are a consideration, this is a primary factor behind the utilization of hollow section rather than open profile construction.

In the past, the closed nature of hollow section units meant that working with traditional bolts was impossible, given the lack of access to the interior face of the section. In many cases welding was the option of choice for connecting to hollow sections, but welding on site was practically difficult and, by its nature, could offer inconsistent results.
