The best fixing and fastening solutions 25 July 2018

INDEX Fixing Systems works towards maximum customer satisfaction by creating added services, such as packaging and display solutions, as a way to provide greater value for its customers.

A manufacturer and industrial supplier of anchor, fixing and screw systems, INDEX Fixing Systems is committed to its products – guaranteeing maximum quality, thanks to compliance with the most rigorous standards of control and inspection at all points of the production process.

The company manufactures and controls the production process for a wide range of its products, so it is possible to guarantee the maximum quality of the products and an optimum service. This is underlined by the extensive list of products with assessments and certifications currently held by INDEX.

“Based on the principles of our philosophy, and thanks to the continuous improvement in all areas of the company, services and production processes, we are able to offer products of the highest quality, adapted to our customers’ needs,” comments INDEX.

Included in its wide range are its light duty fixings such as the TN4S nylon anchor – the reference in the plastic anchors family. This four-way expansion nylon plug provides optimum force distribution within the material, and offers a huge range of load capacities in both solid and hollow building materials.

The nylon anchor also includes 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.

The T-NUX is another plastic anchor from INDEX, clearly focused for fixing medium loads. This nylon plug knots itself on expanding – making it especially suitable for hollow materials or when base material for fixing is unknown. It has a wide range of fixing lengths, from 60mm to 230mm, and thicknesses.

INDEX Fixing Systems, heeding once again the needs of the market, has adapted the packaging of its product range with these two types of anchors being sold in both professional or industrial design and in DIY format.

To gain relevance in the DIY channel, INDEX has launched denominated EASYkits, which provide a great solution to the end customer, and bring great value to the dealer or seller at the selling point. The EASYkits contains the necessary products to fulfil the installation.

Presented in a high-quality bag, they are ideal products to promote the cross selling at the point of sale.

A packaging for every need
“We look at packaging as a way to provide greater value for the customer and rely on continuous improvement to offer the customer new, more versatile and useful formats. We are aware of the importance of maximising store space and therefore design optimal size formats to increase our customers’ profitability,” states INDEX.

The company’s packaging is therefore labelled graphically and clearly, and includes basic information about the product, its installation and functions, facilitating its identification and product selection.

The perfect combination to increase profitability
INDEX also optimises the point of sale (POS) to the maximum with displays and support material. It helps to improve shelf appearance, accelerate the replacement process, help rotation and simplify stock control.

“With our INDEX SPACE STUDIO service, we analyse the customer’s available space and the products they wish to implement, and then propose the most profitable selection according to their needs.”

Also available is INDEX’s range of concrete screw anchors, which includes the TH-DEX direct fixing concrete screw with silver ruspert coating. The main advantage of this metal anchor is the minimum distance needed between anchors or the border, as it doesn’t introduce stress into the base material. Also, it can be used in cracked and non-cracked concrete, for medium to high loads, and it can be installed and uninstalled very quickly and easy.
