)-- Ex-stock from Challenge Europe, the humble threaded nut is frequently the optimal solution where a screw or bolt is required. Not only do traditional nuts provide a simple and inexpensive alternative to a pre-tapped thread, but self-locking versions perform a function often not readily achieved with a tapped hole. Where once a full or half nut was used as a “jam nut,” today Challenge Europe provide a wide selection of specialist nuts, including the popular nyloc nut, plus the combi nut with integral washer for load spreading/anti-vibration purposes which saves fiddly assembly, loss of washer, etc. Its related design of barb nut incorporates a serrated washer for enhanced vibration resistance and to cut into painted surfaces in order to establish earthing continuity where required.
Challenge Europe offer nuts to locate into various substrates, e.g. for embedding into plastic or grp mouldings. Also square nuts which slide into channels formed in aluminium extrusions as used in machine guarding frames or in steel channels for roofing/cladding applications.
