How to select right fastener for your application?

If you have a build project, the right set of fasteners ensures work efficiency, and even to decide which fastener would work best, you need to consider the scope and function of the project. This is important to ensure that the work is working efficiently and that there is a proper connection to the application. Projects require the use of different types of fasteners to ensure the smooth running of the application, such as nuts, bolts and fasteners are always used.


Select the appropriate type of fastener for your application



The screws are perfect for holding two materials together. The threads grip and hold the materials to pull between them. As soon as the correct depth is reached, the screw head stops the screw. In Malaysia, most screws are made of stainless steel, so they do not break easily. The screws are secure but easy to remove. They rarely relax and have a wide range of styles present. However, the screw head is difficult to cover and can sometimes be stripped. The materials can be torn off at some point with a screw.


Bolts and nuts


Screws are common alternative fasteners when nails cannot be used and the screws are not durable enough. Nuts are small items that are often used, but these two fasteners are usually used together, providing great security and load-bearing capacity. Basically, the washers are used under the screw head to add additional holding force. Lock washers or nuts are also used to prevent the nuts from loosening or falling. The Malaysian people have always used bolt and nuts as these two are safe on heavy duty. These are quickly removed and available in a variety of sizes. But they need pre-drilled holes for placement, and they will need a lot of tools to tighten them.




Many types of anchors are used, including wood, metal, concrete, mortar, tile, brick, and stone, all of which are used in different forms of wall types. Losing bolts are ideal for solids such as concrete and brick, but can be difficult if the brick is a hole. The forward bolts are great for fixing in concrete and steel, and the hook bolts are great for brick, concrete and blocks.
