215mm Insulation Fixing with Metal Pin is a universal plastic fastener with metal pin used to fix the thermal insulation boards to the wide range of substrates like concrete, brick and other blockwork in an External Wall Insulation (EWI) system.
WKTHERM metal mechanical fixing 215mm is made from a metal screw with plastic bodies to keep the thermal bridging down to a minimum, meaning that the system maintains its insulating qualities.
The metallic rods are screwed in to give the system stability while reducing the impact on the system when fixing it in place.
215mm Metal Pin Insulation Mechanical Fixings (pack of 100) have an 8mm wide metal core (diameter) and are suitable for fixing Mineral Wool slabs, EPS and XPS insulation boards.
Metal Pin Insulation Screw Fixings are available in a choice of 7 lengths, allowing them to be used on a variety of thicknesses of insulation boards.
If in doubt about the suitability of the substrate, it is recommended a pull test is carried out to ensure it is strong enough to support an External Wall Insulation (EWI) system.
The lengths of fixings available are: 115mm, 135mm, 155mm, 175mm, 195mm, 215mm and 295mm to suit thermal insulation panels from 50mm up to 230mm thick.
Material: Zinc coated carbon steel and polyamide
Head width: 60mm (washer diameter)
Expansion zone: 55mm
Application temperature: from 0 °C to +35 °C

We can help to calculate price per m2 or linear meter (one meter in length) cost, please just contact us via phone 02081910776, email or live chat. 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.
