Re: Galvanized Bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A work-around that I often use to address this concern is to require the supplier of the bolts and nuts to furnish them as pre-assembled units, with whatever washers (e.g., hardened or DTIs) are specified.  This serves to also alleviate fingerpointing that could otherwise occur if the products to be assembled are not from a common supplier.

Is there a standard for hot-dip galvanizing bolts and nuts that assures that the nuts will fit the bolts after galvanizing?
