Fixings and fasteners are a critical consideration when securing insulation boards in any thermal system, new or retrofit.
From helical fixings to stick pins, there are a variety of fixings available on the market for varying purposes.
Let's explore a few that we sell below.
Manufactured from an impact-resistant copolymer, these fixings are designed to anchor insulation material to concrete and masonry substrate materials.
Metal stick pins are used to fasten pre-formed insulation materials to metal surfaces. This includes glass fibre, mineral wall, polystyrene, rigid and flexible PU foam, PIR and similar materials.
Metal Insulation Supports are purposed to fix insulation boards and membranes to walls and ceilings.
These clips are designed to secure insulation against the inner leaf of a cavity wall.
This product is ideal for holding lighter or softer insulation to masonry walls using metal insulation fixings, as it provides a larger surface area. To use, slide the fixing through prior to installation.
We recommend opting for a non-combustible mechanical fixing such as zinc-plated carbon-steel and stainless-steel fittings.
Metal fixes are classed as A1 on the Euroclass scale, deeming them non-combustible and in line with the requirements of BS EN 13501.
We do, indeed. Find them underneath 'Plasterboard Fixings' in the 'Drylining Accessories' section.

The hole in the middle of washers is designed to accommodate screws or bolts. This helps to keep the screw secure and prevent it from loosening.
It also aids in distributing the load from the nut or bolt head across a wider area, preventing damage to the fasteners themselves.
