Why Threaded Rods Are More Reliable Than Threaded Bolts

Dependable Acme sells Acme threaded products such as threaded rods. Ever wonder what the difference is between threaded rods and threaded bolts? While both are similarly designed with a narrow fastener with threading, bolts only have threading at one end while rods have threading at both ends. Oh, and one more major difference: the end of the bolt without threading has a head which is used to drive that head into an object. 

What’s longer? Threaded rods are generally longer than threaded bolts. You can find threaded rods measuring up to 20 ft. long. Bolts, on the other hand, are typically just a couple inches long.

If you’re shopping for threaded rods, we manufacture them in various materials, from low carbon to heat treated alloys. 

Threaded Rod Applications

Where are threaded rods used? You’ll typically find them used in construction (on bridges, for instance) or manufacturing applications. For example, in combustion gas engines, threaded rods are used to secure cylinder heads to engine blocks. Thanks to threading, these rods withstand tension and vibrations well.
