CADDY TELESCOPIC STUD RAIL

Hi Guys,

It is almost the end of the working week again and with that comes our latest blog post.

Today’s blog is focused on the unique, one piece Caddy Telescopic Stud Rail.  This easy to assemble stud rail can be found here at etagfixings.co.uk or fixfactory.co.uk .

The telescopic stud rail is adjustable for non-standard stud spacing.  It can be mounted in two different ways either to the face or inside a stud.

The easy installation is an aspect which we all want to hear whilst undertaking a job.  All that is required for this is a screw gun.  See here at fixfactory.co.uk.  Telescopic stud rails are priced individually, so it lets you ordr the exact amount you need for a job.

As suppliers here at Etag, we know first-hand that it boasts many benefits.  The overall design of the stud rail has been improved enormously with stamped markings and pilot holes.  The stamped markings naturally make for easier identification whilst carrying out a job.  Also designed specially to allow for easier bending whilst using.  The pilot holes allow for easy socket / electrical box attachment with a screwdriver.  It features an interlocking tab which prevents any accidental disassembling occuring.  When used with flexible or rigid conduit or pre-wired cable systems, this in turn reduces movement of the box.

Head restraints allow for vertical movement of blocks which can then accommodate shrinkage or thermal movement of the structural frame or wall of a buildings structure.  Etag head restraints provide the required restraint to the top of any wall.  It is specially designed to give a positive fixing to the head of a wall, without having any visual impact on the finished single skin wall.

The Metfix concealed internal head restraint (otherwise known as MT HR1), is concealed within wall construction.  It is a two part tie which provides a positive fixing into the bed joint.

That is all for now, until next time.

AIRBLOCK EXPANDING FOAM

 

Hi Guys,

So, here goes, this is Etag’s first blog post so we are very excited.  The main aim with this blog is keep you all informed & updated on Etag Fixings, Fix Factory , our products and generally anything we think you would like to read and find informative or helpful.  All questions, queries and suggestions you may have are welcomed.

So for this blog post, we are going to do a product review for you. From our wonderful suppliers Geocel’s range, we stock the highly recommended Airblock Expanding Foam.

Airblock Expanding Foam

See here at etagfixings.co.uk or  fixfactory.co.uk . Airblock comes packaged in a 750ml can and boxed in 12’s.  This foam creates a highly effective air tight barrier to help air seal buildings.  You may ask how it differs from other foams in its field, well Airblock foam hits all those nooks and crannies that are hard to reach.  It fills voids and seals which in return, results in providing a huge improvement to energy efficiency.

This Airblock foam boasts many benefits some of which include; it forms an airtight and water resistant flexible seal, has a temperature resistance of -40 to +100 and is fire and acoustic rated.  One of the best aspects of Airblock foam is that it can be used in conjunction with most common materials like; wood, brickwork, concrete, stone, plaster, metal and plastic surfaces.  So it is not specific to just one material (a huge benefit we think) .

That is all for now, hope this helped. Catch Etags next blog post Tuesday.

Happy building & thanks for reading.
