In-depth range from INDEX Fixing Systems
27 July 2017
INDEX Fixing Systems manufactures and controls the production process for a wide range of its products to guarantee maximum quality and optimum service.
Amongst its extensive list of products is the TN4S nylon anchor – a four-way expansion nylon plug, that provides optimum force distribution within the material, and offers a huge range of load capacities in both solid and hollow building materials.
It also has a flared lip to keep the plug from sliding into the base material during the installation and anti-spin side wings, in order to fix it to any kind of base material. All the installation data is marked on the plug itself – drill diameter, drill depth and screw diameter – for ease of use.
Another popular plastic anchor is the T-NUX for fixing medium loads. The nylon plug knots itself on expanding in hollow materials, making it especially suitable for when the base material for fixing is unknown. It has a wide range of fixing lengths (from 60mm to 230mm) and thicknesses. The packaging of the INDEX product range has been adapted and the TN4S and T-NUX anchors are now being sold both in professional or industrial design, as well as in DIY format.
Continuing with its in-depth range, INDEX also offers the MT-Anchor family, which is characterised by having an expanding clip. While applying torque to the anchor the clip expands due to the cone-shape of the bolt, producing high pressure on the inside of the hole, which creates the necessary friction between the clip and the base material to fix the load.
It is specifically designed for static or quasi-static loads in cracked and non-cracked concrete. A wide range of CH anchors, specified for non-cracked concrete and medium loads are also available – these anchors work by expanding once installed with controlled torque, which ensures a spin-free installation.
Another range is the concrete screw anchors, TH, with Silver Ruspert coating. The main advantage of this metal anchor is that it does not produce stress on the base material, due to low distances required between the anchors and the edge. The TH anchors can be used in both cracked and non-cracked concrete with medium to high loads.
The company has also launched EASYkits, aimed at the DIY sector, which it believes provide a great solution to the end customer. Along with a new EASYkit for the installation of air conditioning equipment there are 21 existing EASYkits solutions, each one contains all the products needed for each DIY project depending on the load to be supported (light, medium or heavy) and the material on which they are to be used (solid, hollow or multi-material).
