Bolts get model specification
A model specification for the purchase of structural bolts has been issued by BCSA. Developed in consultation with BCSA members as well as a number of bolt manufacturers and suppliers, it has been based on the technical specification given in the National Structural Steelwork Specification.
The new specifications recognise the forthcoming introduction of CE Marking for bolts and consequently imposes a number of quality management requirements on both bolts supplied direct from a manufacturer and those provided by a supplier.
“We recognise that there will be further developments in the pipeline for bolt standards with a number of European standards emerging over the next couple years,” David Moore BCSA Director of Engineering said.
“Our intention is to update and re-issue the specification as and when these changes occur,” Mr Moore added.
