In response to building application trends, EJOT UK has technically updated its Opticore fastening system. Opticore, the unique integral nylon fastener head, is manufactured with precision cutting fins that core through membrane faced insulated panels, with the encapsulated fastener self-drilling the substrate in one simple operation. Installation is via a bi-hex or internal torx dual-driving option.
EJOT’s research and development team has taken on board customer feedback by lengthening Opticore’s light section fastener within the range, to 32mm – thus taking into account multi-lap applications. The black encapsulated Opticore carbon steel specification offers a corrosion resistant ‘Climadur’ organic coating, whilst the white encapsulated A2 stainless range is manufactured from high quality grade 304 stainless steel. The Opticore range also includes stitchers, defined for site by a new grey encapsulation.
The overall result is a fastening range for hot and cold rolled steel as well as timber substrates, that cores, drills and fixes without compromise to the liner sheet – and improves thermal retention.
