While bolts and nuts may often be perceived to only form part of the basics in a project, they are invaluable and should therefore receive serious attention.

Fasteners are available in a vast range of specifications. Important factors to consider for best performance include the types and configurations, such as dimensions, material, size, thread specifications, strength, clamping force, diameter, finishes securing and tightening methods, torque value and tightening methods.

A good understanding of all these elements is essential, and so the B.E.D. Group supports every order or request with a dedicated interest in the fastener application and end-use, taking into account potential wear conditions, such as corrosion, rust, water moisture and dust ingress.

In addition, it is important to note that prudent attention is essential to avoid a potential lack of stock availability, based on manufacturing material supply shortages and delays in delivery. The B.E.D. Group therefore supports local manufacturers so that our customers can be assured of benefits including faster supply and delivery at more competitive pricing.
