High strength bolts are quite popular among consumers because of their many advantages. Here are five reasons why high strength bolts are better than regular bolts:
- Stronger than your average bolt
A high strength bolt is about twice as strong as a regular bolt and many customers use these bolts because of the difference in strength.
- Works well under pressure
The fact that high strength bolts are so much stronger ensures its functionality and that they can work well under large amounts of pressure.
- They have a large clamping force
The tensile pressure that the high strength bolts undergo creates a large clamping force which in turn strengthens the joints. The clamping force also means that the bolts do not experience any shear or bearing.
- They have uniform tension
All high strength bolts have uniform tension and the tension is adjusted to suit the load. Few people fasten the bolts, and this therefore makes fitting high strength bolts less expensive.
- Less bolts are needed
The strength of these bolts means that less bolts need to be used to get the job done. High strength bolts, although more expensive than regular bolts, are actually money savers, in the end.
