Allthread in a Range of Sizes, Materials and Finishes
Allthread is also commonly known as threaded rod or threaded studs. It is typically used within building, maintenance and plumbing applications to stabilise objects that are made from wood, metal or other materials.
The threaded nature of the allthread allows for the use of nuts and other fixings to be screwed on to the rod with relative ease in a small amount of time. You can also use connectors.
Types of Materials Available for Allthread
As standard, allthread comes in steel across a number of grades including 4.8, 5.8, 8.8, 10.9 and 12.9 – as well as other variations including stainless steels and Duplex stainless steels, which are characterised by their high yield strength and improved corrosion resistance.
Nylon allthread is becoming popular due to its lightweight, yet sturdy frame.
Titanium is also effective, with a high strength-to-weight ratio and we also supply allthread in a range of alloys.
