Just a few of the ways in which Blind Bolts have been used are listed below.

Construction

Mastclimbers Ltd utilised Mastclimb M16x90mm Blind Bolts.

The Equinox Project in the City of Glasgow used the Blind Bolt anchor system to attach mast climber work platforms to the tubular steel framework. In doing so, they avoided having to utilise specialist welding equipment on site. In this way, the Blind Bolt was able to save the company significant time and therefore money.

Railway

The Automatic Warning System (AWS) is a major component in UK rail safety.

The signal and track engineers employed by Network Rail to attach AWS units onto steel sleepers decided that Blind Bolts were the only way of doing so which avoided having to weld them in place. M20 Blind Bolts are now officially certified as the means of attaching AWS units across the UK network.

Scaffolding

Blind Bolts make it possible to install scaffolding while maintaining easy access to the buildings in question.

Blind Bolts provide an easily applied solution to the problems surrounding attaching scaffolding to new build projects. Most projects involve attaching scaffolding to an industrial or commercial unit via the steel scaffolding. Blind Bolts can be installed without welding, using a quick release anchor system. This means that the process is quick and easy and the underlying framework of the building remains undamaged.

Bridges

Contactors use Blind Bolts when carrying out maintenance on the Tay Bridge.

The Tay Bridge, Scotland, has currently been standing for more than 125 years. Engineers maintaining the structure have just five hours per night to engage in essential work. They opt to use M16, M20 and M24 Blind Bolts in conditions which limit access and prevent the use of specialist tools. One example is the underside of the bridge, where Blind Bolts can be used without supportive scaffolding being in place.

Marine

Blind Bolts are versatile, flexible and hard wearing. This means they’re ideal in a wide variety of marine environments.

Blind Bolts are the ideal solution for bespoke fixing in maritime locations such mooring points and harbours. The innovative one-sided fixing method allows Blind Bolts to be used to fix items in place with complete security in materials such as wooden decks and steel grids and posts.
