Ever installed a Washer but never known why? You’ll often find many flat pack items come with full sets of screws, nuts and washers for screws. Washers are usually installed to help protect the screws and the surface you’re installing them on. When you install a washer underneath a nut you can minimise the damage made to the surface of the material you’re installing it on. So a Washer can help prevent paint from chipping off a surface whenever there’s a bit of friction or movement with your fastening connection.

Extra movement with your fastening connection often occurs when you’re screwing in or screwing out a fastener. With a washer installed you’re essentially distributing the load of a threaded fastener like a screw. So as you’re unscrewing a screw, you won’t be pulling against a material. Instead, you’ll be pulling against the washer.

Our range of washers is made from a variety of heavy-duty materials like grade 316 stainless steel. This alloy is highly resistant to corrosion and heavy tensions that the washer may experience from fastening installations.
