Metal fasteners could be the perfect solution for your project needs!

We can use metal fasteners to help secure more than one component together or for mounting. There is an extensive range available including threaded studs, bushes & inserts for use with metal fabrication. These are available in different shapes, sizes, lengths and materials. These include nuts, standoffs, pins and fasteners to suit most project requirements.

We can fit a wide range of insert types. These include: self-clinch, welded, stud weld and rivet nuts. In addition, we offer cage nuts and rivets as well as plastic standard and bespoke inserts, couplers and joiners. Rivet nuts are especially relevant for use in box section parts or close to bends where a thread is needed which is discreet and easy to install. Riv-nuts can also be installed after powder coating. This can be useful for retrofit applications if required.

Most inserts are available in a range of materials. Typical finishes include: self-finish, BZP, copper coated, anodized, galvanized and stainless steel. Furthermore, in some instances, we may be able to supply parts in other materials subject to availability.

Metal fasteners and inserts can be used for hundreds of applications, not limited to but including: mounting of back plates, fixings for brackets, location markers, earth points, connectors, frames, PCB mounts, lid fixings, component standoffs and endless other possibilities. Finally, for each insert we can also supply the relevant opposite fixing. This may be a nut, bolt or screw. For instance, a clinch stud within a box can be supplied with a corresponding nut if required.

In conclusion there are many solutions available using metal fasteners and we are happy to discuss your options and provide examples if required.
