Better Bolted Connections
Quickly and easily field bolt what you once had to weld with a built-in wrench that goes where your hands can’t.
Simply tack weld Shuriken to metal plates in the shop.
Install the metal plate to one piece of HSS, SpeedCore or other material.
Field bolt the adjoining piece.
HSS offer high strength-to-weight ratios, exceptional torsional resistance, and an aesthetically pleasing appearance, but complicated connections and welds have traditionally been drawbacks. Not anymore. Shuriken allows you to skip the complicated connections and field bolt columns, trusses and beams.
Shuriken allows you to field bolt SpeedCore plates together, saving miles of welding (yes, miles) on large-scale projects.
Get all the benefits of HSS without the field welds. Shuriken allows you to field bolt HSS columns, trusses and beams.
Tight or awkward spaces make connections a challenge. With Shuriken you can easily bolt connections in those hard-to-reach places.
Pedestrian bridges often require a high volume of cord connections and web member connections at tough angles. With Shuriken you can easily make stronger HSS connections in these tricky applications.
Completing projects on time and on budget is getting harder and harder to do in a world plagued by supply chain disruptions, labor shortages and higher prices. Shuriken is an easy way to speed up timelines and complete projects faster than ever before.
“The Shuriken fastener system has been a game changer for our bolted splices. Speed and quality from the fabrication perspective, and the ability to have confidence in a nut that is restrained mechanically and not welded.”
– Mike Lewis, BCS Fabrication
