Threaded Stud Rod
Threaded Rod, often referred to as a stud, is a rod of varying length that is threaded in a helical structure.
Similar in appearance to a screw, the threading extends around and along the rod to cause rotational movements when in use. Threaded rods combine linear and rotational movement to create strong resistance to pressure.
The direction of the rotation caused by a threaded rod depends on whether the rod has a right-hand thread, left-hand thread, or both.
Designed to withstand very high levels of pressure and tension, threaded rods are a common fixing for support systems and used for a variety of applications.
A threaded rod is a fastener and functions thanks to the threading, which causes a tightening action from the rotational movement. Threading on a rod allows other fixings like bolts and nuts to easily screw or fasten to it.
Threaded rods have many applications, effectively working as a pin to fasten or connect two materials together.
Also used to stabilise structures, they can be inserted into various materials like concrete, wood or metal to either temporarily create a steady base during construction or they can be installed permanently.
There are several types of threaded rod available on the market that will suit different purposes, conditions and materials.
The fully threaded rod that supplies are usually used when effective grip strength is required through the entire length of the rod.
They are often used to align structures or are embedded into materials, like concrete, as the threading provides good resistance.
The material is another essential factor to consider when choosing the best-suited rod for your application.
Threaded rods are used in a variety of sectors and for several purposes such as construction, plumbing, manufacturing, marine, agricultural, oil extraction and contractor work.
