It’s all in the mix

Star Fasteners work with a broad spectrum of companies, both trade and end users. Technical knowledge, coupled with an enthusiasm for solving their customers’ challenges are what makes Star’s mix of services invaluable.

As Arconics’s largest UK Huck® distributor, Star has gained a reputation as a solutions provider. As well as stocking the standard Huck fastener range, Star have become experts in solving problems and are flexible enough to adapted them to the needs of their customers.

As the use of lightweight panel and materials evolves in the manufacturing industry, Star Fasteners have tailored their Huck fastener range to meet customers’ needs. The new Penta-Lok fastener and encapsulated Hucktainer® are ideally suited to this market.

Star recognised a gap in the market for a mechanical blind fastener that can be quickly installed in the multiple variations of new composite panels. The Penta-Lok is a 6.4mm diameter plated steel, peel fastener which is ideally suited for use within thin materials or delicate composites.

The Hucktainer® panel fastener has been designed specifically for joining light weight composite panels, plastic and fiberglass reinforced plywood to a wide range of materials. With this in mind Star Fasteners have brought to the market a coloured encapsulated head Hucktainer. Its increased head diameter spreads the load and helps eliminate panel crushing. Hucktainer can be encapsulated in any colour; with low order quantities and quick turnaround it is proving to be very popular.

Star Fasteners stocks a comprehensive range of rivets and threaded inserts. The in-house powder coating service means any stock item can be coloured to meet customers’ requirements and despatched at short notice. Star also stocks associated new tools and related consumables, offering hire, repairs and servicing.

It’s a unique mix that offers infinite solutions.
