Outside of U.S.
Lewis Bolt & Nut Company continues to introduce new products with the addition of the exciting “Sealtite Quick-Set™” Hook Bolt System. Tim Austin, Engineer of Lewis Bolt & Nut, together with Ed Sparks, Asst. Chief Engineer of Structures, CSX Transportation developed the new device, designed to handle both lateral and vertical motion of the bridge deck. The benefits to the user are many, a few of which include very quick as well as safe installation, precise engagement with the flange every time, quick inspection (literally from a high rail vehicle), no more holes to drill in the bridge ties, or dapping (on tangent track) as well as many others. The new “Quick-Set” System will be available for order soon. Check back here for updates.
