Owlett-Jaton, the UK’s largest wholesale supplier of fasteners and fixings to the distributor and merchant trade, has recently launched no fewer than four new product ranges to its already impressive product portfolio.
The new items include channel and bracketry products, ‘Duck Foot’ fixings, ‘Blind Bolt’ fixings, and cut allthread. “We are dedicated to offering our customers the best level of service possible. As well as national next day delivery, with no minimum orders, accounting for the majority of our business, we are also renowned for our comprehensive range of products, including fasteners and fixings, hardware, and ironmongery, to name a few. Being able to add even more enables our customers to continue to rely on us as their number one supplier. We have listened to what our customers want, and acted upon it,” explains Tony Williams, national sales director for Owlett-Jaton.
Channel and bracketry
The products within this range are designed to help support, brace, mount, and connect lightweight loads within the construction and electrical industries; applications include: Piping, wiring, as well as the installation of mechanical systems, such as plumbing, ventilation, and air conditioning.
All of the components have been designed for quick and easy installation, without the need for having to weld or drill. The products can be attached to existing steelwork or concrete, and directly to walls, ceilings and floors.
They offer versatility too; existing configurations can be modified or added to with minimal effort. Inevitably, this all adds up to cost reductions.
The Duck Foot anchor is a new and patented drywall fixing, which easily and quickly provides a strong and secure mounting in single and double drywall walls, and ceilings. Ideal areas of application include modular shelf rails, brackets, wall units, TV mounts and lamps.
It provides a reliable and secure fixing, and is able to handle a substantial amount of weight from a single fixing. The self-drilling concept makes it an easy option for anyone looking to affix items to hollow stud plasterboard walls. The drilling does not leave a big hole in the plasterboard which as a result, helps to protect the plasterboard and makes any filling of holes thereafter a quicker and easier job. The product size gives the Duck Foot an immediate advantage over some other similar products, and can therefore be used in multiple ways.
The Blind Bolt fixing is a constructional cavity fixing, and can be used horizontally or vertically and in certain applications can even be removed. Blind Bolts can be used in a wide range of sectors, including: Construction, bridges, rail, and scaffolding. They are ideally suited for safe, quick and easy installation, saving on time and ultimately cost.
There are numerous advantages to using Blind Bolts, for example, no special tools are required, and they do not require an oversized hole, just a standard clearance hole. Blind Bolts are SCI assessed and design resistances are available to BS 5950 and the Eurocodes.
The mild steel, bright zinc plated cut allthreads range spans 104 sizes, from M4 to M12 diameters, and lengths 20mm to 200mm, and come packed in see-through poly bags, clearly labelled.
“Adding these new items to the range complements the existing Owlett-Jaton offering. We are focused on creating a one-stop-shop portfolio that offers the utmost in choice and convenience – and combined with highly competitive pricing, we are confident that we will remain the market-leader,” concludes Tony.
