Strata Friction Bolts

Strata (friction) Bolt

Strata Bolts are high tensile steel tubular bolts roll-formed into a “C” shape that enables increased contact surface of the steel with the hole, providing higher pull out loads than traditional round friction bolts.

  • Increased contact surface providing higher pull out loads
  • Immediate frictional support at the face
  • Install with hand-held or mechanised equipment
  • Bolts can be post-grouted with Minova cement grouts or Minova’s Capcem cement capsules for extra load bearing capacity
  • Mesh pin improves productivity when installing mesh by reducing the number of holes to be drilled
  • Mesh pins can be post-grouted to stiffen support being used during installation
  • Mesh pins eliminate the incorrect driver
  • Manufactured in 34 mm, 40 mm and 47 mm diameters and various lengths from 600 mm to 3,000 mm
