Our products use austenitic stainless steel to ensure that the buildings they are used on won’t fail due to corrosion. 

Our Product rage consists of:

Building Envelope

Pitched Roofing and Facade

  • Single & twin skin construction - A new generation of stainless steel self-drilling fasteners. Our answer to the emerging challenges in industrial light construction is a new range of stainless steel drilling fixings. These components offer enormous benefits.
  • Standing Seam and Secret Fix - Easy installation of halters for standing seam roofs. SDK fasteners, specially developed for halters, leave nothing to be desired in terms of ease-of-use and long term security.
  • Composite Panels - Fast and comfortable fixing of composite panels. SFS offers the answer with the SXC family. These fixings fulfil a host of requirements.
  • Steel and timber construction - Simple, reliable fixing in high tensile steel. Increasing demands in terms of security and product durability increasingly call for the use of high quality steel fasteners in industrial construction.
  • Rivets - Efficient fastening solutions for thin metal sheet applications with our range of Multi range blind rivets and Folding blind rivets BULB-TITE®
  • Tools & Accessories - Time is money; especially on site. That’s why productivity-improving installation tools have always been a feature of the SFS service package.

Flat Roof

SFS recently added the renowned NVELOPE rainscreen brand to its family

July 2019

Rainscreen
SFS recently added the renowned NVELOPE rainscreen support systems brand to its family. In doing so, SFS has become the first company to offer a complete engineered bracket, rail and fastening system for all rainscreen façade applications from a single source, with confidence. Find out about the various SFS fasteners and Nvelope rainscreen cladding systems in this section of the website https://www.nvelope.com/

TUF-S, a single secret fix solution for Cembrit rainscreen panels

August 2018

Andy Stolworthy, Director of Product & Market Development at SFS, provides some insight into SFS's secret fix solution for Cembrit's 8mm fibre cement rainscreen panels.

Installing Cembrit fibre cement rainscreen panels as thin as 8mm using mechanical secret fixings just became quicker, easier and safer for installers to use thanks to the innovative new range of TUF-S rivets by SFS.

Extensive testing by SFS has demonstrated how TUF-S challenges the convention that installers need to use different fasteners for different panel materials and thicknesses. Until now, no other rivet of this kind has provided a reliable secret fix for panels manufactured in both HPL and fibre cement.

Fully tested and approved by Cembrit:
The performance of TUF-S for 8mm Cembrit panels was proven by SFS through a series of load tests conducted in our SFS laboratory in Switzerland. This allowed for a set of technical values to be calculated to enable façade engineers to easily determine the number of fasteners and clips required to accommodate different locations, wind loadings, etc. This provided Cembrit with total assurance of our product in the UK market.

Cembrit:
Ged Ferris, UK Marketing Manager, says: “We are pleased that SFS have developed an innovative mechanical secret fix system for use with the standard 8mm thick rainscreen cladding boards. Designed and tested by SFS for use with fibre cement cladding, the combination of SFS's TUF-S and Cembrit boards creates an attractive façade, uninterrupted by visible fixings, that will appeal to rainscreen cladding specifiers throughout the UK.”

Installation:
The TUF-S range is designed to eliminate the risk of overtightening which can ruin the aesthetics of a façade and result in very costly damage. It consists of nine variants of A4 stainless steel fixings, with a carbon steel mandrel, that can be used to secure a range of panel thicknesses to the rainscreen support clips using the GESIPA Powerbird Pro tool. The rivet’s design provides a wide range of installation benefits to save time and money, and deliver a safer, better quality overall result.

Installation of TUF-S requires just a standard hole, with no need for complex undercutting – this provides the installer with the flexibility to drill new holes on site if required to accommodate unforeseen issues. The rivet also eliminates the risk of overtorquing, which can damage the rainscreen panels, and it has high pull-out values with no unwinding and uninstallation possible via a hex head.

Delighted to be working closely with Cembrit:
We’re delighted to have worked closely with Cembrit to provide them with a highly effective secret fix solution that will work across their different rainscreen panels. This development project is an excellent example of how SFS is able to create products with innovative unique features that provide OEMs with the assurances they need and address the most common issues faced by installers.
