BoxBolt for cantilevered balcony support
All of the balconies on these apartments in Leeds City centre were connected back to the main steel frame using BoxBolts. The main steel frame of the Apartment building was erected with a steel plate positioned at each end of the balconies that were then used to secure the end plate of the balcony support to. The steel frame of the building was fully clad before the balconies arrived on site so it was a very simple process of offering the balcony support up to the four holes in the existing steel plate and inserting the BoxBolts through the aligned holes. The countersunk version of our BoxBolt was used to reduce the production on the balcony side of the connection. We also supplied a modified version of our popular BoxSok installation tool to speed up the installation time. All the installation was performed from the outside of the building with simple hand tools and a torque wrench.
