Metal Pin Hammer Fixing
EWI-730 Metal Mechanical Fixings (metal pin, plastic body) come in a choice of five lengths, allowing them to be used on a variety of thicknesses of insulation. The metal mechanical fixing is made from a metal pin with plastic bodies, which means that they reduce thermal bridging within the system. The metallic rods are hammered in, which gives the system stability.
The metal pin mechanical fixings are available in the following lengths:
The metal core is 8mm wide.
The metal mechanical fixing is used to fix the insulating boards to the substrates. With a metal rod and plastic body, they keep thermal bridging down to a minimum, which means that the system maintains its insulating qualities.
These mechanical fixings are suitable for concrete, brick and other blockwork. If in doubt about the suitability of the substrate it is recommended a pull test is carried out to ensure it is strong enough to support an EWI system.
