Lightning Bolt microsite launched

ForgeFix - the distributor of fixings, fasteners and associated products such as drill bits and telescopic ladders - has launched a new microsite dedicated to its Lightning Bolt range of self-tapping anchors. aims to support existing stockists by providing extensive information on the numerous innovative features and benefits offered by the range. It is also hoped the new microsite will encourage additional customers to carry the increasingly well-known and well-regarded Lightning Bolt brand.

Mike Smith, sales and marketing director at ForgeFix, comments: “The launch of the new Lightning Bolts microsite reflects ForgeFix’s belief in offering high quality products backed by the highest levels of sales support. 

“The site, which is smartphone and tablet friendly, can serve as a useful sales aid by making it easier for trade and DIY users to understand the many carefully considered design innovations employed by the Lightning Bolt.”

Thanks to their intelligent design and the use of advanced manufacturing techniques, Lightning Bolts set a new standard for their versatility and fixing performance. They can be used to fix into almost any substrate including wood, concrete, brick, blockwork, stone and marble. 

Lightning Bolts also feature a unique Elementech coating, which ensures superior levels of corrosion resistance and rustproofing. This enables the bolts to be used for both internal and external applications.

In addition, Lightning Bolts exert virtually no expansion stresses enabling fixing much closer to the edge of a substrate. They are also totally removable making them ideal for temporary fixing jobs.

Lightning Bolts are available in sizes ranging from M6 x 50mm to M16 x 200mm and with a choice of three different heads. This includes Torx, hex flange and hex heads giving users the flexibility to choose the ideal fixing depending on their project and preferred insertion method.

Lightning Bolts are also supplied in both boxes of between 10 and 100 bolts as well as resealable and recyclable bags containing between 5 and 10 bolts. This ensures greater purchasing and merchandising options.

Concluding, Mike Smith adds: “Alongside lines such as our TorxFast smarter woodscrews and our TechFast roofing and cladding screws, the Lightning Bolt is one of ForgeFix’s best-known brands. 

“To help our stockists capitalise on this growing popularity and recognition, we already support these brands with a range of activities and initiatives – from dedicated merchandisers and point-of-sale materials to sustained advertising and PR campaigns. 

“The launch of the new Lightning Bolt microsite complements that and serves as a further example of ForgeFix’s commitment to supporting stockists in the widest range of areas.”
