You know you’re on to a good idea when everyone you show it to says it must already exist.
That’s what happened with us when we started to show the Joyner Bolt to architects and builders. Without exception, they all thought that it was such an obvious solution that you must be able to buy it. They couldn’t have been more wrong – not only was it not available but the traditional alternatives hadn’t being doing the job properly for over a hundred years until we came along.
“Traditional alternatives hadn’t being doing the job properly for over a 100 years until we came along.”
As a chartered surveyor, one day I took my frustration out on a guy called Mark who told me it was impossible to get a quality joint with a coach bolt and that somebody needed to invent something that actually worked. So we did! But we didn’t realise at the time that it would take five years and a lot of research to design and produce the ultimate product that satisfied both Mark from a user point of view, and me from a specifier/quality angle.
Coming from the two different ends of the building chain (Specifier and Tradesman) gave us a truly unique insight into the shortcomings of the coach bolt for everyone right through the building chain from architect to end user. As a result the Joyner Bolt not only satisfies everyone’s needs but also meets Building Regulation requirements and is available in the optimum range size to meet 99% of all timber to timber and timber to metal situations. It is the Rolls Royce of the fixing world!
“It is the Rolls Royce of the fixing world!”
The 10 fixings in the Joyner Bolt range are guaranteed to:
- grip the timber and not fall out during the connection process – even in the most difficult spaces or when the hole has been overdrilled.
- provide optimum torque level because they cannot be pulled through the wood when tightening.
- speed up the job with zero wastage making it a very cost effective product.
- ensure a quality, decorative finish that meets all Building Regulation requirements.
So after five years we are really, really, really proud to be introducing our product to the world and are looking forward to the next part of the adventure. Watch this space!
