Designing and manufacturing fit for purpose fasteners that deliver on their promise is a complicated business. From a fastener’s pull-out strength and driveability to its corrosion resistance and structural strength, its design has to tick multiple boxes, otherwise it could be the cause of a costly door or window failure.
Most of us will think of aluminium windows and doors as being the ultimate choice for superb visual appeal, long term performance with no maintenance and resistance to the harshest of weather conditions. But while aluminium does not ‘rust’ – that term refers only to iron and its alloys like steel – putting it in contact with other types of metal can lead to costly corrosion issues.
Fasteners used to manufacture and install windows and doors are instrumental in how well the installed product will look, function and perform long-term. Choose them well and you’ll save a lot of time and hassle, as well ensuring high customer satisfaction ratings.
