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.
  • Structural Connection - 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

  • isotak® system  - For attachment of membrane and insulation reducing thermal bridging in flat roof and cold storage construction applications.
  • isoweld® system - Innovative induction welding system which welds adhesive coated plates to single ply membrane.
  • isofast® system - a fully metallic system consisting of special fasteners and stress plates for fastening membranes and insulation to a range of substrates.

Structural Connections

  • TDBL nonut® -  for secure steel-to-steel connections in diverse fields of application - a fastener without a NUT!
  • MULTI-MONTI® -  an innovative and secure anchorage bolt for concrete and walling.

Fenestration

Hinges

  • Hinges for PVC - Our PVC hinge product range is specially matched to the needs of the end user. We offer both standard PVC hinges and also PVC hinges for special applications. Our PVC hinge portfolio includes the Dynamic 2D, Dynamic 3D and Estetic 2D.
  • Hinges for composite - The new Dynamic 2D-C and Dynamic 2D-F hinges have the same benefits of the original Dynamic range for PVC-U doors, namely great aesthetics, adjustability, security and durable performance.
  • Hinges for timber - Quality, performance, load support strength and modern design are the hallmarks of our door and window hinges for the timber market. 
  • Hinges for aluminium - Inspired by the latest trends, SFS  has introduced a complete programme of hinges for steel and aluminium doors. The Just 3D for steel frames and the Dynamic 3D for aluminium head up this range.

Fabrication

  • MC - Mechanical Corner Fixing System. The competitiveness of a timber window can be improved drastically with single part production. The special features of the new MC fixing system for the mechanical corner fixing contribute decisively to the economic efficiency of this new manufacturing technology.
  • Accessories and fitting tools - SFS  offers hinge covers, slip-over heads, milling guides, drilling patterns, gauges and all sorts of other useful installation aids to help make the most of SFS  hinges.

Window Installation Systems

  • JB-D® - The JB-D® installation system allows for scheduled, accurate window and doorset installation in accordance with RAL guidelines and accommodates all dead and imposed loads. Used for aluminium, timber and PVCu windows, the system is ideal for high rise residential and commercial buildings.
  • Frame Fixings - Our SPTR range of fasteners provide fixing and adjustment solutions for our window installation systems for all substructures and our FB range of frame fixings can be used without plugs on window frames. These fixings allow easy installation of window frames in various walling materials. 

From John O’Groats to Lands End, we’ve supplied products for new and refurbished projects throughout the UK.

SOK-IT For fast reliable installations

March 2021

As construction constantly evolves so do the tools and methodology used to create our buildings. This demands on time, the availability of tools and in some cases in-experience can lead to incorrect choices being made that ultimately impact the performance of the building post construction. If the errors are recognised during construction then re-work is required impacting build program and adding additional cost, alternatively the errors are not found (or ignored) which leaves a gap between the design performance and actual.

Introducing SOK-IT with its primary purpose to reduce poor installations due to wrong setting of a Tek gun.

Features & Benefits
• Minimises fastener breakages due to incorrect setting of tool
• Reduces downtime and costs due to safe installation
• Two different torque levels (6+8Nm) for different applications and fasteners
• 5000 pcs. guaranteed safe installations when used correctly
