NOVA Award

The NOVA Awards honor top innovations in construction from around the world. This video, created by the Construction Innovation Forum, www.cif.org, illustrates why the BOLT STAR innovation was chosen as a 2015 award winner for making significant contributions to safety, efficiency, quality and environmental stewardship.

Hard Pour Test

No handling with kid gloves going on here! Video of BOLT STAR holding large anchor bolts and rebar cage firmly in place during “hard” concrete pour of 24” structural pole base for a light pole. Actual construction site and project.

Durability Test, SUV Run Over

BOLT STAR 24” is placed on asphalt then run back over by an SUV weighing over 7,000 pounds.

Strength Tested to 1,000-lbs

This video shows 19 boxes being loaded on to a pallet hung from BOLT STAR, each box weighing approx. 50-lbs. for a total dead weight of over 1,000-lbs (including rebar cage, anchor bolts and pallet).

Stress Test #1, Strike Test

BOLT STAR fitted with four large 1″x36″ anchor bolts undergoes the ultimate stress test.

Stress Test #2, Down Force

BOLT STAR, fitted with four large 1″x36″ anchor bolts and installed on top a Sonotube form, is subjected to extreme down force.

Test of Hand-tightened Bolts

BOLT STAR is fitted with four large 1″x36″ bolts, hand tightened only and subjected to repeated attempts to shift or move the bolts in the tool’s slots.

TEMPLATE PROTECTOR™

product_header

NEW! for BOLT STAR®

Template Protector Part Number: 006-00412

TEMPLATE PROTECTOR’s mixture of corrosion inhibitors and non-stick polymers act like Teflon on a frying pan, coating BOLT STAR against concrete spatter and potentially harmful concrete build-up. Spray your BOLT STAR templates and tools before the pour, and concrete spatter rinses off with water afterwards. The product can be sprayed or brushed on, dries in 15–20 minutes and each application last for up to one week. One gallon covers an estimated 150-200+ applications. It does not freeze after application, and the environment is protected from the product’s non-carcinogenic and solvent less composition. TEMPLATE PROTECTOR can even be used on BOLT STAR templates with pre-existing build-up to slowly remove concrete build-up. Specially manufactured for Bolt Star LLC by Cresset Chemical Co.

PROMOTES REUSABILITY OF BOLT STAR TEMPLATES

BOLT STAR 30-INCH

product_header

BOLT STAR 30-inch is here!
FEATURES
  • Fits 30-inch round column form, up to 1" anchor bolts and 7" to 14" bolt circle
  • Xenoy™ 5220U polycarbonate material, 5 times stronger impact resistant than ABS in tests to -40°F (ASTM D256)
  • Proprietary under arm ribbing design for longer span, added strength and reusability
  • Strength tested to 1,000-lbs

BENEFITS
  • Saves Labor, 57% more efficient construction process
  • Reusable, typically a dozen times or more; pays for itself on the first job
  • Reduced Risk of error and costly rework with no measuring, cutting or drilling
  • Sustainability through reduced construction waste

USES
  • Commercial parking lots requiring 30" light pole concrete foundations
  • DOT roadway lighting and traffic signals requiring 4 bolts up to maximum 1" diameter and 14" bolt circle

*Compared to building wood templates, assuming crew of 3 with average $30/hour rate, wood template materials cost of $20 per base and $99 price for Bolt Star. Buy 10 Bolt Star 30" and reuse 5 times. Estimated additional savings of $2,890 on each subsequent job. Savings will vary depending on local labor rates and material costs.
