    BOLT STAR® 30-INCH is Newest Reusable Bolt Template

    Sacramento, CA (September 6, 2016) – Construction Innovations LLC, manufacturer of the award winning BOLT STAR reusable bolt template, announced today the release of a 30-inch version of this popular tool for efficiently setting anchor bolts in light pole bases and round column forms. 

    Like its smaller 18” and 24” siblings, the neon yellow 30-inch BOLT STAR continues to emphasize strength and reusability. It is manufactured of Xenoy™ polycarbonate material having nearly 5 times greater low temperature impact and improved chemical resistance when compared to ABS plastic. The underside of each 30-inch arm features waffled diagonal ribbing, and side gusseting has been added for greater strength and support. The 30-inch version also accepts the Xtender adaptor accessory for nested forming tubes. “We are excited about this important addition to our successful BOLT STAR product line of reusable bolt templates for parking lot and outdoor area lighting,” says Ken Gregory, President of Bolt Star LLC. “We have received numerous phone calls and inquiries about the 30-inch version from contractors and distributors alike, and look forward to getting this product in the hands of contractors who wish to streamline their pole base building process.”

    BOLT STAR improves pole base construction efficiency by 57% and significantly improves the productivity of crews by eliminating the time consuming, repetitive and error prone practice of building wood bolt templates which are typically discarded as construction waste. With BOLT STAR, there is no measuring, cutting and drilling of holes as required with wood templates and the product is reusable over and over again with proper maintenance. The innovative tool 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.

    In 2015 BOLT STAR received the prestigious NOVA Award for its contribution to construction efficiency, quality, safety and reducing construction waste.  BOLT STAR also has won the 2015 Construction & Engineering Award from BUILD Magazine; the 2014 Product of the Year Award for Specialty Products from EC&M Magazine; and the 2014 Top Products Award from Electrical Products & Solutions Magazine.

    Made in the USA, BOLT STAR has several other significant advantages over wood templates, including: 1) arched arms in the tool’s patented design gives work crews the ability to trowel finish the entire top of the base immediately after the pour without removing the template. This ensures that bolts are held securely in position while the concrete sets up, lowering the risk of costly rework due to bolts shifting out of alignment; 2) adjustable bolt slots for bolt circle patterns ranging from 7” to 14”gives contractors added flexibility to adjust to a pole manufacturer’s specification, in the field if necessary, whereas multiple wood templates are commonly built for specific bolt sizes and bolt circle diameters; and 3) cage tie slots help keep the rebar cage centered in the concrete form, a benefit when it comes to passing inspections.
