New specialist fixings incoming from JCP

JCP’s brand new price list heralds the addition of new specialist fixings to the catalogue as well as updates to the existing ranges and some new point of sale too…

JCP Construction Products, the specialist fixings division of Owlett-Jaton, has enhanced its offering by including several new specialist fixings in its latest price list, which came into effect last month.

The new 60 page catalogue showcases over 1,500 products, including metal and chemical anchors, nylon and light duty fixings, self-drilling screws, drill bits, and a comprehensive pre-pack range.

The new specialist fixing additions include: Throughbolts with European Technical Assessments (ETAs), single thread Ankerbolt sockets, 8mm stitching bar, stainless steel plastic head nails, and an increased range of SDS drill bits.

Changes have been made to some existing products too, including the phasing out of the standard range of Throughbolts and replacing them with the ETA option 7 range. The Vinylester high load resin and the Vinylester fast cure winter grade resin have attained an option 1 ETA for use in both cracked and non-cracked concrete. There is improved point of sale too – expanding foam guns are now presented in vacuum packed free hanging cards and the Drivefast nails and gas will be supplied in robust cardboard packs of 2,200 rather than plastic tubs.

Nick Beardon, General Manager of JCP, comments: “The range is bigger and better than ever, offering great quality anchoring products to customers in the construction industry at a competitive price.

“We know that choosing the right fixing for the job is of vital importance, and so the catalogue includes images as well as specifications to make this easier. Data sheets on our products are also available on our website – www.jcpfixings.co.uk – giving full product information, as well as European Technical Assessments, Declaration of Performances and CE Certification, where appropriate.”

JCP also offers the Anchor Calculation Programme (ACP), which provides solutions for anchoring into both cracked and non-cracked concrete. The tool is designed for engineers, specifiers and architects to simplify specifying connections to surfaces such as floors, ceilings and walls, and takes into account loadings, spacing and edged distances.

All the relevant information is entered into the programme, and a selection of suitable anchors are displayed in an easy-to-digest PDF format and high resolution 3D graphics. This can be used at the start of the project for specification as well as keeping a record of the fixings used, for future reference.

Technical Manager Brian Deluce adds: “This is one of the best calculation tools on the market, and we don’t charge a penny for it. We want to offer the industry a fair and accurate tool which will allow them to get the most out of their projects.”
