195mm RAWLPLUG R-TFIX-8S Metal Screw Fixing (box of 200) is a universal screw-in facade fixing that offers quick, easy and precise installation in all substrates (categories A, B, C, D and E) with its unique sleeve compression zone.
Metal Screw Fixing 195mm is designed for External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) based on Polystyrene (EPS), Mineral wool (MW), Polyurethane (PU) and Light wood wool building boards.
The long plastic moulded over the screw minimises thermal bridging, making it energy efficient.
Its plate stiffness (value 0.6 kN/mm) ensures a smooth elevation surface and stable insulation system.
The unique design also supports high load-bearing capacities, reducing the quantity of fixings required per square metre of insulation.
The screw comes pre-assembled to suit your time-saving needs.
Material: steel nail and plastic body
Head width: 60mm (washer diameter)
Expansion zone: 55mm
Application temperature: from 0 °C to +35 °C
RAWLPLUG R-TFIX-8S Metal Screw Fixing Installation guide:
· Drill a hole of required diameter and depth.
· Drilling depth of min 35mm in A,B,C,D materials and 75mm in Aerated Concrete Block.
· Clean drilled hole 3 times.
· Insert driver bit into recess in head moulding of R-TFIX-8S screw.
· Insert the fixing into the drilled hole.
· After inserting the fixing in the hole, the plate should be pressed against the thermal insulation surface.
· Embedment depth of min 25mm in A,B,C,D materials and 65mm in Aerated Concrete Block.
· Apply steady axial pressure, ensuring the disc of the setting tool is kept perpendicular to the fixing axis.
· Steadily drive in the screw with high revs until fixing is secure (when the disc touches the insulation surface).

Alternatively, you can work it out yourself quickly and easily: to get cost per meter square please divide price shown in orange area by ''Required area (m2)'' Example price of £28.80 divided by board coverage 2.88m2 = cost of £10.00 per m2.
No matter whether you choose a local installer or a national company, there’s a few tips to help you find the right installer for your home insulation improvements, such as asking for recommendations and making sure that they’re part of a certification scheme. This makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the installation, and you can be sure that they know exactly what they are doing.
4 TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST INSULATION INSTALLER
1. Thermal inspection picture in portfolio
It’s worth seeing a installer’s previous work. There’s no harm asking if you can see any properties nearby that they’ve installed insulation in. Best way would be to see Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal cameras spot small, but key changes in temperature in different areas of a house, identifying problematic areas that the human eye never could and some that a visual inspection could only hypothesize.
Along with checking recommendations and previous work, finding reviews online can often be a great way to find out if they provide a good service or not. However, it’s best not to solely rely on reviews you may find or review websites, as there’s no controlling who writes them.
3. Compare prices
Comparing prices will also ensure companies can’t take advantage of you and give you a fair price.
4. Word of Mouth
The best way to find a great insulation installer is through recommendations. Make sure you ask friends and family. They will most likely give you their honest opinion and can tell you from first hand experience.
Whether you require a wall, cladding, external wall, loft or floor insulation fitted, you can find and hire your local insulation installers from popular UK web pages. A simple internet search will return thousands of potential installers near your area.
