Bolt Star reusable bolt template for round concrete foundations
By Anthony Capkun
March 31, 2016 – Bolt Star aims to improve crew productivity by eliminating the practice of building wood bolt templates for round concrete foundations commonly specified for parking lot and outdoor area lighting, tennis and sports courts, streetlighting, security camera poles, etc.
There’s no measuring, cutting or hole-drilling with Bolt Star; the reusable template is designed to hold four anchor bolts and the structural rebar cage in place during the pour of a light pole base or round column form. Bolt Star is available for 18-in. and 24-in. diameters, with a 30-in. version is slated for release soon.
Manufactured by Construction Innovations LLC (Sacramento, Calif.), Bolt Star is now available in Canada through Rack-A-Tiers Mfg. Inc. (Victoria, B.C.), which has been named exclusive master distributor. Rack-A-Tiers will market Bolt Star to electrical supply, construction and industrial supply distributors across Canada.
