It has long been felt that the bolted connections in multi-storey steel frames and structures have been the Achilles' heel in fire resistant design. The connection is a critical element of the frame and intumescent paint protected bolted connections can be under-protected in fire, potentially leading to premature structural collapse.
The Boltcap is designed to solve this problem and providing fire protection for cellulosic, hydrocarbon, jet fire and high heat flux jet fire scenarios very efficiently with easy inspection and verification.
Bolt Caps Are Easy To Use Giving Cost And Time Savings In Any Weather
They provide engineered protection and are simply snapped into place as shown, need no surface primer or preparation, make inspection easy and are ideal for speeding up the build rate or recover programme time.
New application such as corrosion & erosion protection and protecting concrete anchors are also taking place (see the news section).
Cellulosic and hydrocarbon tapon bolt caps are available direct or via distribution globally.
