Hex bolts (six sided heads) are the industry standard for fasteners with forged heads. Grade A bolts, all SAE hex bolts, and several other common specifications require a standard (finished) hex head. For specifications that require a heavy hex pattern, refer to dimensional tolerances for heavy hex bolts or structural bolts.

Hex Bolts are bolt fasteners with six sided hexagon head and externally threaded body. Hexagonal head profile enables easy wrenching while putting enough torque to the bolting joint. Hex bolts are used with hex nuts or a tapped hole. Hexagon head bolts, Hex machine bolts are other alias of Hex bolts. Hex bolts dimensions are defined in both metric and imperials sizes with unified national coarse pitch (UNC), fine pitch (UNF), fixed pitch (UN) and iso metric thread profile. These are produced across all material categories and astm specifications.

Hex bolts can be used for many different applications that include fastening wood, steel, and other construction materials for projects such as docks, bridges, highway structures, and buildings. Hex bolts with forged heads are also commonly used as headed anchor bolts.
