Weld Mount is the ideal method for mounting components to the hull or decks of cored fiberglass boats.
Surface bonding Weld Mount fasteners eliminates drilling holes into the core eliminating the danger of delamination due to water intrusion. In addition Weld Mount fasteners are stronger and eliminate the need to glass in wood or other materials just to have a mounting surface. This saves significant labor, time and expense reducing the weight of the boat. On metal boats Weld Mount eliminates welding, drilling and tapping saving significant labor costs. Often welding is not an alternative on finished boats due to fire hazards. Welding often results in warpage and discoloration of the metal which can be difficult if not impossible to remove.
Weld Mount Studs are used to mount battery switches and fuse blocks to a cored bulkhead wall.
