Hex bolts are a type of threaded bolt, characterised by their six-sided hexagonal-shaped head. Hex bolts can be either fully threaded or partially threaded (featuring a clear shank along part of the body) and are suitable for use in a wide range of applications, typically machinery and construction.
They offer strong tensile properties and most standard types can be used in multiple locations (dependent upon the material and finish). As a result, hex bolts are a widely used staple fastener.
