BOLDA® Column Shoe — Strong and Optimized Bolted Column Connection

BOLDA® Column Shoe is a new generation of Peikko’s column shoes with high load capacity. It is efficient and compact and has ETA verified resistances with best in class performance.

The BOLDA® Column Shoe is highly optimized, making it more compact than its competitors. This enables BOLDA® to be easily handled and installed. Thanks to the compact design of BOLDA® Column Shoe, up to 24% smaller column cross-sections can be achieved when compared to PEC® Column Shoe. Smaller cross-sections reduce material use and improve the use of space in buildings.

Its ETA is based on full-scale bending and shear resistance and fire resistance tests. BOLDA® Column Shoe is the only ETA assessed bolted connection for high loads in the world.

A design based on the Eurocodes for BOLDA® column connection in erection, final and fire stages, as well as supplementary reinforcement, are available on Peikko Designer® design suite.



Color code is marked on base surface of BOLDA® base plate.
Lengths of anchor bars are defined according to concrete grade C35/45.
