A structural bolt is a specialized type of bolt designed and manufactured to meet specific requirements for use in structural applications where safety and load-bearing capacity are critical. These bolts are used to join structural components together, such as steel beams, columns, trusses, and other elements in buildings, bridges, industrial structures and more. They play a vital role in maintaining the structural integrity and stability of these constructions.

Structural bolts typically adhere to stringent industry standards, such as those set by organizations like ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) or AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction). These standards define the bolt's dimensions, material composition, mechanical properties, and testing procedures to ensure they can withstand the stresses and loads that occur in structural settings.

Due to the critical nature of their applications, the selection and installation of structural bolts must follow strict guidelines to ensure the safety and longevity of the structures they support.
