In house testing by VUETRADE identified a problem with the old design of our washer fixed Bolt Down Post Support. The washer fixing design was providing a low load rating and failure was occurring with this fixing method.
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 2018.
The new design incorporates a cap which gives a nice, neat finish on a standard low price point product!
*kN ratings mentioned are the maximum achieved under test conditions before the product showed signs of failure.
