  • Nacelle Fastener

    Nacelle Fastener

    Designed to improve access hatch safety and accessibility, the nacelle fastener is made from 316 stainless steel to ensure offshore corrosion protection. It is also over-moulded for lightning strike protection and can be colour-matched, providing total discretion.

  • Big ring

    Big ring

    The big ring was designed to give our customer multiple fixing points consistently and reliably, with just one bigHead – saving time and ensuring accurate final assembly.

  • 3 Tang Quit Pin

    3 Tang Quilt Pin

    This was designed to retain insulation blankets in a specific customer application. Our customer needed a head with “tangs” that can be bent into position after installation.

  • Limpets

    These bigHeads were fully encapsulated in polyurethane to our customer’s specification. The encapsulated bigHeads are ultrasonically welded into position during final assembly and are designed to enable secure, reliable fastening with a low profile.

  • Wheel arch trim fastener

    Wheel Arch Trim Fastener

    Our exterior wheel trim application for trucks was designed so that the bigHead can be fully embedded in the tier supplier’s moulded part. The embedded bigHead provides secure fixing in precise locations for efficient final assembly.
