The EM-BOLT boltable embedded plate design follows many of the installation steps of the traditional welded embedded plate design, making on-site installation easy with little difference to skilled labor.
Eagles Landing Mixed Use Building
Eagles Landing is a mixed use building built for Champlain College in Burlington, VT. It includes housing for 314 students as well as retail stores. The building achieved Two Green Globes certified by The Green Building Initiative (www.thegbi.org). In order to achieve the Green Globe awards, energy efficiency of the building envelope was a priority. That’s why using embed plates with thermal breaks was important!

The Rubenstein Commons on the Institute for Advanced Study campus at Princeton University is a challenging steel and precast concrete construction project on many levels. You can click through these images on the architect’s (Steven Holl) website to see the complexity of the design.
EM-BOLT has Introduced an Innovative Patented Boltable Embed Plate!
The EM-BOLT embed plate system saves significant construction time by eliminating costly field welding during construction. The boltable embed plate is installed similarly to a traditional welded embed plate but is provided with ease-of-use features which make installing the embed plate to the form a breeze.
Engineers and designers who are considering switching to EM-BOLT boltable embed plates from standard field welded embeds are often concerned that their standard embed plate design practices won’t hold. In reality, embed plate design for EM-BOLT boltable embed plates is no different than designing for standard field welded embed plates. The same calculations and software are used to validate the embed plate design.
Embedment Plates are not an inconsequential cost to the foundations of large construction projects. Here's a way to bring this cost down.
Save time and money and improve safety on your next construction project with this proven steel embed plate.
The videos below walk you through the features and benefits of patented the EM-BOLT boltable steel embed plate and demonstrate how easy it is to use.

In the engineering world, new technologies are constantly being developed. An example of a new design for concrete embed plates is the patented EM-BOLT Boltable Concrete Embed Plate (PATENT No.: US 9,359,756,B2). The EM-BOLT BEP-2 two-row boltable concrete embed plate model was tested at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine, Orono Maine, in 2016 to determine the governing failure mode and maximum load.
Energy costs continue to be a factor in building design and construction with increasing pressure from consumers and building owners on architects and engineers to deliver more comfortable, energy efficient spaces. The construction industry is innovating to deliver what the market wants, in ways that the market can sustain from a cost standpoint.. Architects and structural engineers look to thermal breaks to improve building envelope thermal performance. The challenge as structural engineers is to incorporate the concept of thermal breaks while maintaining the structural design requirements of the building codes.
