Just a few of the uses for Blind Bolts are listed below.

Construction

Mastclimbers Ltd utilised Mastclimb M16x90mm Blind Bolts

They were used on the Equinox Project in the City of Glasgow. By using the Blind Bolt anchor system to attach mast climber work platforms to a tubular steel framework, the company avoided having to carry out welding on site.

The Equinox Project is therefore a standout example of Blind Bolts saving a company time and money.

Scaffolding

Blind Bolts have played a vital part in installing scaffolding while maintaining access to buildings.

Blind Bolts offer a unique solution to the issue of attaching scaffolding to new build projects. In most cases the scaffolding was attached to the steel skeleton of an industrial or commercial unit. The lack of welding and quick release anchor system meant that the Blind Bolts could be installed and removed quickly and easily without any damage to the underlying framework.

Railway

The Automatic Warning System (AWS) plays a major role in rail safety.

Blind Bolts are now established as a certified method for attaching AWS units onto steel sleepers. Signal and track engineers tasked with designing and installing the AWS system identified M20 Blind Bolts as being the only way to attach the AWS units without having to weld them in place. Network Rail approved the use of Blind Bolts, and they are now used on all AWS throughout the UK.

Bridges

The current Tay Bridge has been standing since 1887. Contactors use Blind Bolts when carrying out maintenance.

Engineers working on the Tay Bridge, Scotland, have only five hours per night to carry out essential maintenance work. M16, M20 and M24 Blind Bolts are used in conditions where access is strictly limited and the use of specialist tools impossible. On the under-side of the bridge, for example, Blind Bolts can be used without the need for supportive scaffolding.

Marinas

The versatility and flexibility of the Blind Bolts makes them ideal for use in a range of marine environments.

Blind Bolts have been used to provide bespoke fixing solutions in locations such as harbours and mooring points. The adaptability of the unique one-sided fixing method means that Blind Bolts can be utilised to fix items securely in place to materials ranging from steel grids and posts to wooden decks.
