Lindapter commissioned independent dynamic load testing of its Hollo-Bolt, Type AF and Type AAF products in order to offer specifiers an economic and technically improved connection compared to welding or through bolting for dynamic load applications.
The independent tests were performed in accordance with EN 1993-1-9: Design of steel structures - Part 1-9: Fatigue. A number of tests were performed at different load levels from 10,000 to 2.5 million cycles in order to determine suitable detail categories. The results from the testing were then used to calculate Safe Working Loads (including a Factor of Safety).
