Heavy hex nuts are the strongest of all the comparably graded nut designs because of its greater length of thread engagement and greater resistance to dilation (widening or stretching). Our heavy hex nuts are manufactured in accordance with ASTM standard.
Heavy hex nuts are used in a variety of industrial applications. They are used in the construction of bridges, buildings, wind turbines, ships and various other applications.
• Heavy Hex Nuts – made with a thicker wall, this type of nut can handle heavy loads, hence the name ‘heavy hex’
• Thick Nuts – unlike heavy hex nuts, which are formed using a thicker wall, thick nuts are actually taller or higher than standard finished hex nuts to better distribute loads
• Lock Nuts – this style of nut uses additional friction or simple resistance to avoid loosening and provide a more secure joint - you’ll find a wide selection of lock nuts available in several materials specifically suited for different applications
• Jam Nuts – this simple style of thin nut is installed between a hex nut and joint material, allowing the stronger nut to handle the load.
