Suited to exterior or marine applications, stainless steel Thin Sheet Nutserts are the most cost effective method of installing a full depth thread into thin gauge materials. Ideal for use in drilled or punched holes, Thin Sheet Nutserts are installed from one side - making them especially suitable for use in tube, box sections or tight corners. Depending on the type of fastener selected, thread sizes go from M3 to M12. Larger sizes can also be provided should the application require it.
The standard low profile insert gives a near flush finish in sheet materials without the need to countersink the hole. For applications that have to be absolutely flush, countersunk versions are available. .
If a high push out value is required, large flanged versions are available. Large flanged inserts can also be useful in very thin sheet applications, as they tend to provide rigidity to the material surrounding the hole– thus making the assembly stronger. .
Dependant on thread sizes, materials up to 8 millimetres thick can be accommodated. For applications which must be totally sealed, closed end versions can be supplied.
