What are the standard fastener thread types?

Threaded fasteners are a very popular hardware choice. They offer a non-permanent solution that can be installed, tightened, and removed quickly. Threaded fasteners are most easily identified by an external or internal screw thread. There are fully threaded fasteners that have threading from the head to the tip and partially threaded fasteners that have threading on only part of the shaft. Common threaded fastener types include screws, bolts, and nuts.

What are the standard fastener head types?

There are two basic types of fastener head styles, countersunk and non-countersunk. Non-countersunk heads are fully exposed and include binding, button, cheese, fillister, flange, hex, pan, round, socket and low socket, square, and truss heads. Countersunk designs include flat, oval, and bugle heads.

What is the difference between a bolt and screw?

Bolts and screws are two of the most popular fasteners in existence. Each is designed for a specific application and often cannot be interchanged due to design requirements. Screws and bolts also differ in shape and cost — screws are usually tapered, while bolts are not, and bolts tend to cost more than screws. Materials typically requiring a screw include plywood, pressboard, drywall, sheet metal, and deck planks. Materials that work well for bolts include concrete, studs, and beams.

Why are fasteners manufactured from stainless steel?

Stainless steel fasteners are among the most popular fastener options due to their advantageous qualities. Stainless steel fasteners provide enhanced corrosion resistance, high strength, low maintenance, and exceptional value for a range of applications that span various industries.

How are fasteners classified?

Fasteners are classified into several groups consisting of threaded and non-threaded options. Threaded fasteners include nuts, bolts, screws, and studs. Non-threaded fastener options include nails, rivets, pins, and washers.

How do I know which fastener type is right for my application?

The best fastener for your build or project will depend on temperature, exposure to rain/water and chemicals, pressure/use, and more. Different materials perform better under other conditions, so talk to an expert if you have specific questions.
