Metal Plugs

Metal Plugs are an all steel fixing for light weight aggregate blocks. Ideal for fixing in areas such as fire escape routes where regulations restrict the use of plastic anchors or plugs. Their external teeth expand and grip into the material, giving high load bearing strength. Designed specifically for use with wood and chipboard screws. The internal ribs interlock with the screw’s thread to provide a secure fixing. They come in a Zinc and Yellow coating. Available from Swiftfix in brands Timco and Rawlplug.
