Grade 8.8 bolts and grade 8 nuts, tightened to the recommended torque settings, are proven over many years of use to be a very safe and effective means of joining together the different components that make up Modulift Spreader Beams. We would recommend that fasteners are visually inspected by a competent person before each use.
If fasteners used in the assembly of Modulift Spreader Beams are used correctly and stored in a good condition, there is no reason why they cannot be re-used time and again. If replacement fasteners are needed, they should be a minimum Grade 8.8 bolt and Grade 8 nut. Fasteners supplied by Modulift are also Bright Zinc Plated, which offers a degree of protection from the elements.
