TAC ALERT – UPDATE ON CAST IRON SPINDLES AND PERCH BOLTS

In May the TAC issued an alert regarding the use of cast iron spindles and perch bolts, based on a failure that occured in New Zealand and subsequent assessment. A recent failure in Sydney had confirmed the issue, and prompted an update to the alert, including some methods of identifying if your spindles are iron or steel.

The updated alert has been added to the ASRF/TAC Bulletins area of the website and can be viewed here… https://www.asrf.org.au/tac-advicesheets/
