Install Pins

insulation pins - mechanical fixing of insulation

Install Pins are used to mechanically fix and install insulation material that can be pierced by metal spindles.

Install Pins, also referred as ‘hanger pins’ or Insulation Pins, are either stud-weldable, or designed to be bonded with adhesive for non-welded systems. Non-weldable pins are designed with the spindle mounted to a solid metal base.

The metal base is available with a ready-to-use ‘peel and stick’ backing, or a perforated base to be bonded with suitable adhesive. A self-locking washer (clip or dome) is applied over the protruding spindle to retain the insulation.

Pyrotek® supplies a variety of pins and self-locking washers that are available in a range of metals such as stainless steel, galvanised steel, aluminium and nylon to suit various surfaces and different fixing methods.
