What Are Stick Pins?

Stick pins, also known as weld pins or insulation hangers, are specially designed fasteners used to attach insulation materials to surfaces like sheet metal, ductwork, or other substrates.

They consist of a pointed pin with a washer or disc-shaped head attached to one end. The other end is typically sharp or pointed for easy insertion into the insulation material and the underlying surface.

Types of Stick Pins

Stick pins come in various types to accommodate different applications and insulation materials. The common types include:

  • Self-Stick Pins: These stick pins feature an adhesive backing on the washer or head, allowing for quick and easy installation on smooth surfaces.
  • Perforated Base Pins: These pins have a perforated base that provides extra adhesive grip and enhances the bond strength between the insulation material and the surface.
  • Cup Head Pins: Cup head pins are designed with a larger, round head that provides increased pull-through resistance and stability.
  • Lacing Anchors: Lacing anchors are stick pins with extended lengths, making them suitable for applications that require additional anchoring or for thicker insulation materials.

Benefits of Using Stick Pin Products

  • Enhanced Insulation Performance: Stick pins create a secure bond between the insulation material and the surface, preventing movement, sagging, or separation, thereby optimising insulation performance.
  • Durable and Long-Lasting: Made from robust materials like galvanised steel or stainless steel, stick pins offer excellent durability and resistance to corrosion, ensuring longevity in various environments.
  • Versatility: Stick pins can be used with a wide range of insulation materials, including fibreglass, mineral wool, foam board, and more, making them suitable for diverse insulation and HVAC applications.
  • Ease of Installation: Stick pins are relatively easy to install and offer instant mechanical fixing, requiring minimal tools and effort. They provide a quick and efficient solution for attaching insulation materials securely.
  • Cost-Effective: Stick pins offer a cost-effective solution for insulation installations compared to alternative methods, saving both time and money.
