Threaded Insert - Aluminum Structural Connections - Controlled Dynamics Inc.
The Threaded Insert is a self-tapping fastening system allowing profiles to be connected while keeping the interior of a framed space clear of brackets. It is primarily used for windows, doors, panels, and safety guarding in combination with plastic snap-in panel gasket material where the application calls for a captive panel material such as polycarbonate, wire mesh, or sheet steel.
This innovative fastening method requires no special profile machining. Simply drive the self-tapping insert into the end of a profile, feed the screw through the insert, and loosely thread a straight nut onto the end of the screw. Slide a mating profile onto the end of the nut and into your desired position and tighten. When correctly assembled, the tip of the threaded insert should slightly embed into the mating profile - creating a strong joint that allows no movement and will not loosen over time.
