Public Sector

For over 30 years, U-Bolt-It has been delivering fastener solutions for almost every application necessary to keep our communities together and transportation systems running. Because municipalities provide numerous critical services that we rely on, fasteners for municipalities must be high-performing and reliable to help deliver these critical services. The public services, such as street and sanitation, utilities, water, fire and police department, and ambulance, each have unique fastener requirements.

People also rely on the vital services of the transportation industry, whether it is public transportation or large trucks transporting fresh food and produce or railroads moving raw materials across the country. Fasteners for the transportation industry must demonstrate a wide variety of physical, mechanical, and performance properties to meet these rigorous demands.

Because both sectors consist of a broad range of industries and service providers, U-Bolt-It offers the diversity in fastener types, part material, size, and shape necessary to meet their diverse fastener demands. Our vast industry experience and huge inventory range of high quality standard and custom fastener solutions enables us to meet these basic requirements effortlessly. We serve our clients in various public and transportation sectors efficiently and effectively so they can provide these vital services and goods without interruption.


Fasteners for municipalities and transportation services must offer a tremendous range of physical, mechanical, and performance properties to meet a wide variety of applications and environmental conditions. For example, fasteners used for railroads and large trucks must withstand long-term exposure to harsh elemental and long hours of wear and tear. These transportation industry nuts and bolts must demonstrate exceptional toughness and durability and high levels of tensile, shear, and fatigue strength.

Because people rely on the basic services provided by local and city governments on a daily basis, fastener failure is not an option. Fasteners for municipalities are used in a wide range of applications, including utility repair, water plants, and the maintenance and repair of city vehicles such as garbage and sanitation trucks.

The following are important mechanical and performance characteristics for fasteners for power generation:

  • High corrosion and oxidation resistance
  • High tensile, shear, and fatigue strength
  • Heavy-duty construction for high-strength applications
  • Capable of operating under extremely harsh environments, such as high and low temperatures
  • Excellent resistance to pressure and vibration
  • Heat levels of toughness and durability
  • Common fasteners used in the public sector and transportation industry include the following:

    • Hex Bolts

March 7, 2016, 4:06pm Let me put it this way: January started my 37th year in this business, (I’ll be 55 in June, so I started when I got out of high school). Nobody ever calls when you go over and above and get them out of a bind. You can fill 99 out of 100 items, and they will call and bitch about that one item. Very seldom do they let you know how you got them out of a bind., or did the extra for them, or stayed late or delivered stuff on the weekends, etc. They have come to take it for granted, but I suppose we created the monster by the service level we maintain. And service is what we have that the big guys do not. John Wilson, there at U-Bolt It, did a fantastic job for us. I figure the sizes and quantities we were requesting were a little of a shocker, but John was all over it. And we appreciate all that he did. All of these SS U-Bolts were for our nuclear plant here in Mississippi. They went on re-fuel outage a couple of weeks ago, which they do every two years. And when they go on an outage, it is wide open for about a month. Cost doesn’t matter, freight doesn’t matter, get it here, and get it here fast. I’ve been through about 10 of these outages, and they never plan ahead very well. So compliments are in order for John and whoever else there did these for us. U-Bolt It did an exceptional job and we do appreciate it. Anything else comes up like this, you will be the first on the list. Let me add this though…..I’m not totally convinced that John went out in the plant and got his hands dirty….just saying

– M.
