Is the rock always solid to fix a bolt?
An expert rigger knows the right surface of an appropriate rock very well and before drilling, he predicts the inside with the use of experience and rudimentary tools such as a hammer. Some rocks may appear compact on the outside but can be very crumbly after the first few centimeters of drilling.
Furthermore, if the rock is adequate in strength for a hole, it may not be suitable for surface uniformity. The anchor plate must be placeable flat on the rock. If you do not find a flat spot on you rock’s surface, do not position the anchor plate anyways.
How to avoid an inaccurate and badly made hole?
Check first if you have a suitable drill bit to drill the rock correctly. The hole must be of the correct diameter and it is recommended not to make more than 20 holes with the same bit without re-sharpening it. You will have to blow inside the hole to clean it from dust before inserting the bolt. If the plate moves slightly it may be due to an inaccurately drilled hole.
Our bolts and plates are all certified, but it doesn't mean that they are eternally in ebst shape. Therefore, especially in areas exposed to sea air, it is recommended to inspect the anchors at least every 12 months.
Bolting is an experts work, please seek experts advice and don’t start making your first holes without clear instructions or know-how.
