What are fasteners?

When working on your home improvement project, you not only want to have the right tools for the job, but you need the right fasteners. Do you know what you are looking for when you want to attach your 2 x 4 boards to your 4 x 4 posts?

Fasteners are more tools in your toolbox. They are strong arms of your project holding two pieces of material together. The pieces can be made of wood, metal, or some polymer material. The joint is non-permanent since technically both parts can be separated later down the road. Here are some additional points to keep in mind:

Fasteners come in many different forms, for example, you can find the following in your Ottawa Fastener Supply inventory:

  • Nuts
  • Concrete Anchors
  • Inserts
  • Washers
  • Threaded rods
  • Rivets
  • Retaining Rings

Additionally, each type of fastener can be made of different materials that fit your project specifications, such as:

  • Carbon Steel
  • Alloy Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Titanium
  • Aluminum

You can find your bolts, nuts, and other fasteners with coating to slow corrosion or completely uncoated. If you are not sure which type will work the best for your project, ask us. We’ll be glad to help.

Choosing the right tools aids in making your next project run smoother. Sometimes, finding the best fastener requires assistance from a knowledgeable team focused on your success.
