EJOT has unveiled a new range of fixing solutions at this year’s RCI Show.
The EJOT range encompasses different options for mechanical and chemical anchors suited to all common exterior substrates: including plywood, metal sheeting, brick or clockwork masonry and cracked or untracked concrete.
EJOT UK’s Technical Business Development Manager, Brian Mack commented: “Globally EJOT is expanding its product offering relating to concrete, brick and block substrates: by consolidating our existing brands, through research & development, and from consultation with OEM’s and engineers.
We have the products within the range to meet all installation issues into the different substrates, to tackle a wide variety of applications and performance criteria.”
Amongst EJOT’s new fixings are the three Trio components, which can be used to fix into concrete or clay bricks including perforated types and aircrete blockwork.
The 10mm diameter sleeve is manufactured from high density polyethylene to create a variable anchor zone, measuring from 30 to 60mm in depth. Its glass-reinforced nylon pin is intended to be used for securing lighter weight insulation such as expanded polystyrene back into brickwork or concrete.
Its metal pin will generally be used for heavier insulation types, though still being suitable for lighter EPS material. EJOT Trio then presents a generic, non-system specific product solution.
Also unveiled at RCI was EJOT’s new HTK-75-2G 75mm diameter tube-washer. Developed for part-adhered flat roofing installations, it meets SPRA guidelines for bonded/mechanical and is suitable for securing insulation back into either ply or profiled steel decks.
EJOT’s technical sales engineers will advise on the correct fixing centres in relation to wind-load calculations.
The tube-washer and threaded fastener will not only address cold-bridging concerns, but its telescopic design will provide resistance to imposed loads. With the insulation and membrane permanently secured using EJOT’s hybrid solution, the job is completed by folding and heat welding the laps.
