A leading producer of indoor and outdoor seating required a screw to fasten the guard rail of the bleachers to the vertical support member, in the field under difficult circumstances and the safety implications against failure.
The producer chose to use ½-13 x 2¾” DUO-TAPTITE® screws due to their very low end load characteristic and high strip-to-drive torque ratio in the thin nut member.
The high prevailing off torque of the DUO-TAPTITE® screw eliminated the possibility the fasteners may loosen and the stability of the DUO-TAPTITE® screw in the pilot hole enhanced the assembly operation. The use of DUO-TAPTITE® screws instead of nuts and bolts also reduced the customers fastening costs while the quality of the product increased.
