ICC BoxBolt® - Quick and Easy Blind Structural Steel Connections Backed by ICC Approval
BoxBolt is a fully tested blind fastener for connecting to tube steel or where access is restricted to one side only. BoxBolt is suitable for use with rectangular, square or even round tube sections. It eliminates the need for access to both sides of the connection and only requires a clearance hole to be drilled to suit its outside diameter. The holes can be drilled off site for new projects where the position of the holes can be detailed or the holes can be drilled on site for retrofit applications.
There is no need for any skilled labor to install a BoxBolt as it can be done by using simple hand tools such as a wrench and torque wrench.
The BoxBolt offers a guaranteed load value provided the correct torque has been applied; this is stated in our technical tables and installation guidelines. The loads stated are based on physical testing of all conditions performed by a test facility with International Accreditation Service (IAS) certification.
Our unique BoxSok installation tool can be used to speed up installation when large numbers of BoxBolt are required.
