Bolts are tightened using tools like wrenches, torque wrenches, or impact wrenches to achieve the required tension and clamping force. Proper torque is crucial to ensure the bolts remain secure.

Bolting Structural Integration

4. Structural Integrity

Bolting plays a critical role in ensuring the structural integrity and safety of buildings and infrastructure. Properly installed bolts provide resistance against shear, tension, and other forces that structures may encounter, contributing to their stability and load-bearing capacity.

Bolting Quality Control

5. Quality Control

Bolting is subject to rigorous quality control and inspection procedures to verify that the correct bolt type and size are used, that they are properly installed, and that they meet engineering specifications and safety standards.

Bolting Maintenance Inspection
