VUETRADE Galvanised Bolt Down Post Support – NEW STYLE
VUETRADE Galvanised Bolt Down Post Support – OLD STYLE

In house testing by VUETRADE identified a problem with the washer fixed design of Bolt Down Post Supports.  The washer fixing design returns a low load rating and capacity and there were also issues around pivoting on the central fixing point.

Whilst the old design was fast to install with a single centre bolt, our in house testing demonstrated poor holding capacity.  The centre washer simply ‘pops’ out from the washer hole under uplift pressure

Testing of the new design has a 36% improvement over against the old washer fixed design (test report available on request). We are also currently working on a further improvement; testing results on this further improvement will be available in the coming months.

The new design incorporates a cap which gives a nice, neat finish on a standard low price point product!

  • Improved Design
  • Higher Load Ratings
  • Neater Finish
  • Quick & Easy to Install
  • 21.1kN Load Rating*

*kN ratings mentioned are the maximum load achieved under test conditions before the product showed signs of failure.
