Threaded bar, or rod, also known as stud or studding is a steel bar with thread extending across the entire length. They are designed to be used in tension applications and can be cut to the desired length for any application. They are available in lengths from 1 metre to 3 metres, and longer lengths can be made with the use of thread connectors.
There are two grades of threaded bar, 4.8 and 8.8, relate to the tensile and shear strength, with the higher value being stronger.
Threaded rods are galvanised for increased corrosion resistance, and provide a cost effective fastening solution for many varied applications.
They can be used with many other products including drop-in anchors and masonry anchor shields.
Conform to DIN975 standards.
Available in grades 4.8 and 8.8.
Galvanised coatings prevent oxidation of the protected metal to create a longer lasting finish. It does this by forming a barrier and by acting as a sacrificial anode if this barrier is damaged. Galvanise is a coating that (in contrast to iron oxide) does not trigger a breakdown of the substrates surface integrity
