The Blind Bolt has an innovative and unique design. This means that anyone using them has to be aware of exactly how the dimensions of the bolts are measured, and the way in which these measurements are used during fitting.

On the menu above you’ll see a pictorial representation of these measurements, while the details are set out below.

The Anchor Clearance

Anchor clearance refers to the minimum distance required if the Blind Bolt anchor is to be deployed effectively. This particular measurement has to be carefully noted in order to ensure that the anchor doesn’t catch on the section wall in question.

Depth Clearance

Depth clearance is the minimum space needed inside a cavity wall in order for the anchor on the Blind Bolt to be deployed effectively. This particular measurement has to be carefully noted in order to ensure that the bolt doesn’t hit the section wall opposite before deployment of the anchor.
