Integrity Products Break OffIntegrity Products claims to have changed the perception that shear bolts are an expensive product and normally available only to special order on extended lead times with the launch of the IP Shear Bolt, a patent pending solution.

“This permanent high security fastening will give many benefits. In addition to reduced cost and lead time, the ability to control the application torque is inherent” says Peter Shelton of Integrity Products. “A client in North America had an application where a bolt fixing was to be installed which

required a very narrow torque range whilst at the same time achieving a high level of tamper resistance. We were able to design and supply an IP Shearbolt with a shear feature to accurately meet their requirements.”

A2-70 Stainless Steel together with Steel in both Zinc and Hot Dip Galvanised finishes are available together with application tooling. Typical uses are handrails, street furniture, security fencing, parapets and balustrades and the bolts can be used in conjunction with Shear Nuts.
