HSFG stands for High Strength Friction Grip and as the name suggests they make use of friction. Where a traditional bolt will stop the plates in a connection from moving apart by supporting the weight on the bolt shank in the form of shear stress, an HSFG supports the weight by clamping the plates so tightly together that they can’t slip past each other.
In other words, the friction generated between the plates is equal to the force being put on the plate by the weight of the beam it supports.
To make sure that the plates don’t slip past each other, the bolt needs to be carefully preloaded. The area around the bolt needs to be clean and unpainted (which we make sure of whenever we use HSFG bolts), and the bolt then needs to be tightened to a precise level.
In general, we include a DTI (Direct Tension Indicator) with the HSFG bolts that lets you know when the right tensions been reached. (The little bumps on the DTI will be compressed as the tension increases).
Our HSFG Bolts are designed in such a way that they have a high rate of dimensional accuracy. Our precision and eye for detail make the HSFG Bolts have a robust design which matches the needs that the industry demands. Our HSFG Bolts have high abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance which make them have a longer functional life. They have a high tensile strength which makes them an industry leader in its class.
