Threaded bar, which is also often referred to as threaded rod and allthread, comes in a wide variety of different types, lengths and materials, making it one of the most versatile products within fastening.

Whilst they can masquerade under a number of different names, they are in essence all the same thing but with slight differences that will be mentioned as part of the name. For example, 45-degree angle cut threaded rod, 45-degree angle cut threaded bar and 45-degree angle cut allthread are all the same thing and will do the same thing within an application.

The major differences between the products often come in thread styles, materials or steel grades.

At Fastenright, we are able to supply a vast range of different allthread products, types of which we’ll discuss below.

All the Threaded Bar Information You May Need

As you might imagine, there’s a vast array of things that you can change about the threaded rod.

They can vary in length, thread diameter, material, finish and much more – meaning that the threaded bar that you’re using doesn’t have to be a ‘make-do-and-mend’ option – it can be perfect for the application you want to use it in.

Lengths of Threaded Bar

Generally, the length of a threaded bar ranges across one-metre, two-metre and three-metre variants.

There are, however, times where this isn’t the case, for example, Aluminium and Brass allthread is only available as standard in one-metre lengths. This is also the case with Trapezium thread, as well as materials such as Nylon, Monel, Tantalum, Titanium and Tungsten.

Double Ended Stainless Steel Rods are available in sizes from 20mm to 120mm.

Threaded Bar Diameters

In the vast majority of cases, the thread diameters available will differ on a rod to rod basis.

For example, the smallest diameters for steel in grades ranging from 4.8 to 12.9 range from M3 to M8, whilst the bigger diameters range from M48 to M80.

Generally, however, most of these threaded bars are available from a small thread diameter such as M3 or M6, to a larger one such as M52 or even at times M80.

In the cases of Imperial Threaded Rod they are available in sizes 1/4-20 to 1-8 and ACME Threaded Rod is available from TR10 to TR50.

Threaded Bar Materials

Here’s where the fun starts for threaded bars. They are available in such a wide range of materials, meaning that the types of application that they can be found in expand greatly.

The materials include various grades (4.8, 5.8, 8.8, 10.9 and 12.9) of steel, as well as A2 Stainless Steel and A4 Stainless Steel.

There is also Brass and Aluminium, which are available in one-metre lengths as standard.

At Fastenright, we can also provide a wide range of special materials in Threaded Rods, which we’ll discuss below.

Special Materials for Threaded Bar

We can provide specialised materials for a number of different fasteners, including our threaded bar range.

There is a choice of Nylon, which is increasing in popularity due to being an affordable option that remains both sturdy and lightweight, as well as non-corrosive.

There is also Duplex Stainless Steel, which holds exceptional corrosion resistance and can often be found in seawater environments.

Special Alloys are relatively popular in their use for threaded rods too – with Hastelloy, Incoloy, Inconel, Waspaloy and Monel all popular in their use as allthread due to strength at high temperatures and high corrosion resistance.

Tungsten, Zirconium and Titanium are all exceedingly popular choices.

Why Threaded Bar?

Allthread is more often than not used in plumbing, building and general maintenance and to stabilise objects made from metal, wood, or other materials.

You may find them in wall construction, or even furniture. Of course, the bigger the length, the bigger the application you could find them in.
