Structural steel connections 29 May 2019

Bolted connections can be divided into preloaded and non-preloaded structural bolting assemblies – with pgb-Europe NV having a product range covering both types.

Preloaded bolts (EN 14399) are specially designed for high demanding connections. There are two different systems within the harmonised standard: EN 14399-4 (HV) and EN 14399-3-6 (HR sets). pgb-Europe already has HR available from stock from M12 to M30 and a new range of HV will be available from June. Typical to those systems, are the pre-lubricated nuts with black colour – this is an extra treatment as a supplement to the hot dip galvanising.

pgb-Europe’s product range in SB assemblies for structural bolting – EN 15048 – includes bolts according to EN ISO 4014 and 4017 in Grade 8.8 and dimensions from M10 up to M36, in both zinc plating and hot dip galvanising. Bigger sizes are available upon request. The full range is packed in solid carton pgb-boxes with clear label and CE Marking, according to the Construction Products Regulation. The Declaration of Performance can be downloaded from pgb’s website.
