What Are the Best Fasteners for Railcar Body Applications?

When it comes to railcar body products, Bossard recognizes the importance of keeping the installation process quick and simple. That’s why we supply special fasteners that are easy to install and just as easy to remove, allowing for a fast and stress-free installation process. All of our railcar body products are made of the best quality materials, have extraordinary corrosion resistance, and comply with high safety standards.

Railcar body materials not only provide structural stability for the train, but they are essential to safety as well. There is no room for error, which is why Bossard provides materials that can withstand high temperature, corrosion, and vibration to ensure a long-lasting product. For instance, Bossard’s slotted self-locking nuts are reusable and built to retain clamp load even in extreme conditions.

Permanent materials include our lock bolts, allowing fast and automatic installation, and our grounding studs, which are simple to install with our battery powered installation tool. These studs use bolts to discharge leakage current and have an excellent above average clamping range. Another product with enormous clamping force are tensioner nuts, which allow for simple and safe tightening through any hand tool. These nuts prevent thread galling and are a great economical option when mounting large bolts and studs.

Bossard offers only the best when it comes to railcar body products: safe, stable, affordable materials that are built to handle immense resistance and stress while still providing easy installation.
