Heavy Duty, Vibration Resistant, Self-Locking Sleeve Anchor: The Power-Bolt by Powers Fasteners

The Power-Bolt by Powers Fasteners is a heavy duty, vibration resistant, self-locking sleeve anchor. The Power-Bolt is available in two different head styles: a finished hex head or flat head with a hex key insert. These anchors are made out of Zinc Plated Carbon Steel (Finished Hex Head and Flat Head) and also Type 304 Stainless Steel (Finished Hex Head). The internal bolt of the Power-Bolt is removable and reusable in the same anchor sleeve. This makes it suitable for applications such as mounting machinery which may need to be removed for service and for temporary applications such as heavy duty form work.

The Power-Bolt is designed to have expansion occur at two locations within the drilled hole for maximum hold. At first the cone is pulled into the large triple-tined expansion sleeve, developing a mid-level compression force. Further tightening causes the threaded bolt to advance into the threads of the expander cone, forcing its four sections outwards. The expander cone engages the base material deep inside the anchor hole, greatly increasing the holding power of the Power-Bolt. The bolt and cone remain locked together which prevents loosening under vibratory conditions. Along with the expansion inside the anchor hole, the Power-Bolt is designed to draw the fixture into full bearing against the base material through the action of its flexible compression ring. The compression ring with crush if necessary, while the anchor is being tightened, to tightly secure the fixture against the face of the base material.

General Applications and Uses

  • Column base plates and mechanical equipment
  • Dock bumpers and support ledgersHex Head Power-Bolt
  • Racking and railing attachments

Features and Benefits

  • High load capacity
  • Two-level expansion mechanism
  • Internal high strength bolt is removable and reusable
  • Compression zone in sleeve clamps fixture to the base material
  • Low profile finished head design

Make Your Facility Tamper Proof with Break-Away Nuts

Break-Away Nuts

Security is a major concern on most peoples minds these days. From securing correctional institutions to protecting from vandalism in public places, having the right security products makes all the difference. At Tanner we are your premier source for security fasteners and nuts, providing you with a variety of different products. When it comes to looking for security nuts, the level of protection it offers should be the main determining factor for which type you buy. You can choose from either tamper resistant or tamper proof security nuts. Tamper resistant security nuts are extremely difficult to remove without the proper tools. While tamper proof security nuts have no removal tools, which makes them nearly impossible to remove once they are installed. The tamper proof security nuts that we offer here at Tanner are Break-Away Nuts.

Break-Away Nuts are designed as a one-piece unit that have a break-away hex head that leaves a conical shaped tamper proof nut behind.  These tamper proof nuts are used extensively in places where high security is a key factor such as: correctional institutions, hospitals, schools, public places, and retail stores. Break-Away Nuts help secure a variety of products, prevent unauthorized removal of, and secure access to equipment and facilities. They can be used for a number of critical security fastening applications where removal of a fixture is not intended and when preventing tampering is important. Break-Away Nuts are installed like a typical nut, except once the proper torque is achieved, the hex head breaks away leaving a conical shaped tamper proof nut behind. The conical shaped tamper proof nut that is left behind has no removal tool available making it nearly impossible to remove once installed.

Break-Away Nuts are manufactured from either ZAMAC 5 zinc alloy or 304 stainless steel. The stainless steel variety provides greater corrosion resistance and boasts high-strength properties compared to the zinc alloy nuts. These security nuts are typically tapped to standard bolt dimensions, but are also available to be tapped oversize for hot dip galvanized fasteners.

Break Away Nuts Material Specifications

If you are looking for a tamper resistant security nut instead, be sure to check out our line of Trident Nuts. We have a number of different sizes available and are one of the few distributors that offer Large Diameter Trident Nuts. If you plan on buying any of these Trident Nuts be sure to pick up the correct sockets and accessories to help install these security nuts correctly.

National Fall Prevention Stand-Down

The purpose of the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 269 of the 775 construction fatalities recorded in 2012. Those deaths were preventable. Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2012.

Companies can conduct a Safety Stand-Down by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards. Managers are encouraged to plan a stand-down that works best for their workplace anytime during the week of June 2-6, 2014. (OSHA.org)

PLAN ahead to get the job done safely.
PROVIDE the right equipment.
TRAIN everyone to use the equipment safely.

Fall Safety ABC's

Here at Tanner we want to make sure you can provide all the correct Fall Safety Equipment to your workers.  A typical Personal Fall Arrest System (PFAS) incorporates three components often described as the ABC’s of fall protection. The anchorage/anchorage connector, body support and connecting device, when used together, form a complete system for maximum worker protection. But don’t forget about another required component of any fall protection program — the descent, rescue and retrieval of a fallen worker.

ANCHORS: 
Anchors are a secure point of attachment. Anchorage connectors vary by industry, job, type of installation and structure. They must be able to support the intended loads and provide a sufficient factor of safety.

BODY SUPPORT: 
Body support is typically a full body harness. Harnesses distribute fall forces over the upper thighs, pelvis, chest and shoulders. They provide a connection point on the worker for the personal fall arrest system.

CONNECTORS: 
Connectors such as shock absorbing lanyards or self retracting lifelines connect a worker’s harness to the anchorage.

DESCENT & RESCUE: 
These are devices used to raise or lower a fallen injured worker to safety or retrieve him from a confined space.
