Does the I-Line Panelboard have Bolt on Circuit Breakers?

Issue:
Does the I-Line panelboard have bolt on circuit breakers?

Product Line:
I-Line panelboards and circuit breakers sold and supported in the USA.

Environment:
Application

Cause:
Selection

Resolution:
The construction of the I-Line circuit breaker provides a "bolted connection" to the bus bar stack by means of  "blow-on" type lineside connectors.  The parallel connectors clamp around the bars and in the event of a short circuit, the increased magnetic flux causes a tighter grasp.  In addition, breakers have a bolt that is on the load end that screws down to the back panel to further hold the breaker in place.
