Ceramic ferrules are an essential part of the standard drawn arc stud welding process. They are designed to encircle the weld stud to protect the weld arc and limit it to a specific area of the base material. They also contain the molten weld metal and act as a mold to give a uniform shape to this metal, also called the weld flash. The term, weld flash, is used to distinguish the weld metal at the base of a stud from the weld by other arc welding processes, which is called weld fillet
Weld Stud Shear Connectors are unthreaded with an upset head. They are designed to interconnect the concrete slab to the load bearing steel beams. Because of the inter connection, construction resists shear loading between the concrete and steel beams. Weld Stud Shear Connectors meet with AWS and all other applicable specifications, and are used in all types of concrete connections.
Inject-TITE FS (Fast-Set) is a 2-component, 1:1 mix ration, structural epoxy system that offers exceptional strength in anchoring and doweling applications. Tested in accordance with ASTM E488 and ASTM E1512 for its capability to resist static, dynamic, seismic and wind loads in uncracked concrete for both threaded rod and rebar.
Solid brass slotted wood bushings allow for use of sidewalk bolts in a frame application or frame and stucco application. These brass bushings are perfect for securing storm shutters in place. They also provide solid anchors in woodworking and furniture making, especially in places that cannot accommodate long wood screws.
6-Lobe Tamper-Resistant Concrete Security Screws are the optimal fastening solution, combining the security feature of a 6-Lobe tamper-resistant drive with the superior quality and easy installation of our masonry screw. Designed for applications in concrete, brick, or hollow block. The special Hi-Lo thread literally taps threads into masonry materials. The high, sharp thread with its notched cutting edge cuts deeply and easily. The alternating low thread provides stability for fast, accurate driving. The screws are coated with Tanner Guard finish to provide superior corrosion resistance.
SNAPTOGGLE heavy-duty toggle bolts carry twice the load in a smaller hole than standard wing anchors. A patented strap design with sturdier straps and smaller ratchet interval adjusts more precisely and snaps off flush to the surface. SNAPTOGGLE heavy-duty toggle bolts do NOT spin when installed with a screw gun and provide superior holding with metal-to-metal fastening. At Thread Source, we stock the zinc-plated steel versions of these SNAPTOGGLE bolts. There also are 304 stainless steel versions of the SNAPTOGGLE bolts available by special order.
ALLIGATOR anchors are designed to hold high loads in solid walls, ceilings, and floors … but also hold securely when they encounter an unexpected cavity, such as in hollow brick or hollow block, or even in drywall or, especially, in tile over drywall. The specially formulated polypropylene body flows into and locks up with any undercuts in the hole, bonding the screw to the wall and sealing the hole to prevent moisture from entering. Optimal holding values [measured in tons] are obtained in highly dense substrates by using a screw diameter and a drill diameter of the same size as the anchor diameter. The anchor is available both unflanged for push through mounting and with a flange for use where a cavity is anticipated (drywall, hollow brick, etc.).
TOGGLER plastic toggle anchors provide vibration-proof anchoring of light to medium loads in hollow walls & ceilings but also hold securely when they encounter an unexpected solid, such as a wooden stud, or when performing as wedge anchors in materials with thicknesses above their normal wall grip range. Improvements in the original design have increased holding strength and abuse resistance. Holding arms have been thickened and strengthened without increasing the insertion hole size, and major stress points have been significantly reinforced without increasing anchor size.
The SAMMYS X-Press threaded rod hanger is designed to install vertically into the bottom of enclosed steel structures, where access to the back of the installed fastener is not possible, providing a secure anchor for 3/8″ threaded rod. The fastener itself uses an expansion sleeve style anchor, for a proven secure hold. The SAMMYS X-Press anchor can be installed quickly and easily with the SAMMYS-Press IT Tool, saving time and installation cost.
The SAMMYS Sidewinder threaded rod hanger is designed to install horizontally into a wood surface, providing a secure anchor for 3/8″ threaded rod. The screw itself is from the ITW-Buildex line of wood anchors, for a proven secure hold. SAMMYS Sidewinder anchors are designed to be installed with the Red Installation Tool, to ensure proper torque and prevent over-tightening.
The SAMMYS Sidewinder threaded rod hanger is designed to install horizontally into a steel upright, providing a secure anchor for 3/8″ threaded rod. The screw itself is from the TEKS line of steel self-drilling anchors, for a proven secure hold. SAMMYS Sidewinder anchors are designed to be installed with the Red Installation Tool, to ensure proper torque and prevent over-tightening.
The SAMMYS Sidewinder threaded rod hanger is designed to install horizontally into a concrete upright, providing a secure anchor for 3/8″ threaded rod. The screw itself is from the Tapcon line of concrete anchors, for a proven secure hold. SAMMYS Sidewinder anchors are designed to be installed with the Red Installation Tool, to ensure proper torque and prevent over-tightening.
