Light duty fixings produced by pgb-Polska 19 August 2019

pgb-Polska is the Polish production plant of pgb-Europe (headquartered in Belgium), which is specialised in the manufacturing of nylon anchoring systems – offering high performance fixing systems to provide fastening solutions for every branch in the construction industry.

New in its range is a combo of the SMART® XUP and a zinc plated universal wood screw, which will mean users always have a complete set at hand. The SMART® universal plug XUP is a nylon plug made from high-quality polyamide PA 6.

This plug, with its four expansion zones, ensures an optimal and safe anchoring. It expands in solid substrates and forms a strong knot in hollow and panel building materials. This makes it easy to choose the right plug, even if it’s not known what material the wall is made of. The collar prevents the plug from slipping into the drill hole.

Available in sizes 5mm – 14mm, the plug also has a longer version, the SMART UP. Thanks to its strong anti-rotation wings on the neck of the plug and the large collar, this is a very suitable plug for panel-based materials, as well as hollow masonry.
