Skanska selects BUMAX to supply fasteners for Slussen

BUMAX has been chosen to supply high-strength and corrosion-resistant fasteners to global construction giant Skanska for the high-profile Slussen infrastructure project in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Slussen area in central Stockholm is being redeveloped with new stainless steel sluice and flood gates. It is a massive and essential nine-year SEK 15.8bn (USD 1.6bn; EUR 1.3bn) project in the heart of Stockholm. It includes road and rail infrastructure as well as rebuilding the lock and sluice system and is expected to be complete in 2025.
Skanska was commissioned to provide new stainless steel sluice and flood gates for Slussen.
Skanska turned to BUMAX to provide premium high strength and corrosion-resistant stainless steel fasteners for the Slussen sluice hatches. The company ordered approximately 15,000 BUMAX fasteners for the project. The fasteners specified were a mixture of BUMAX 88 (A4/316L) and BUMAX SDX 109 (Super Duplex), which provide high strength and excellent corrosion resistance.
Around 90 different types of BUMAX fasteners were ordered for the Slussen project. The largest of these fasteners were BUMAX SDX threaded rods M48x1225 and M36x1125, in class 80.
