Nuts & Washers
Nuts and washers are essential to any job and are handy to keep stocked up in the van and workshop, as they will come in useful whether tackling domestic or commercial projects.
Our range at Data Powertools includes a huge variety of sizes, types and materials for all applications, meaning there is something for every job.
Nuts work by a combination of the thread's friction and the compression of the parts together to provide a strong connection. There are a variety of types depending on what requires and whether the nut will be subject to pressure from vibrations or not. Generally hexagonal in shape with an internal thread, a wide selection of sizes are available to suit their counterpart fixings.
Washers provide the essential function of distributing the load of a screw or nut to prevent damage to surfaces, especially soft wood and plastic. This can also help to reduce the chance of the fixing gradually loosening over time as well as minimising possible leaks. Washers come in a range of sizes, shapes and styles to suit the requirements of the project or installation with different materials available according to the intended use.
