Pick the right security fastener for the job

With fasteners being such a critical aspect of any project, it’s also important to make sure that you are using the correct type of fastener for each application.

Anti-theft screws and fasteners can add another layer of complexity to a build.

Before choosing any type of security fastener, ask yourself:

  • What materials need to be joined? Bolts are usually the fastener of choice for metal although some bolts are made for other applications.
  • What is the thickness of the material to be joined? For a secure connection, the fastener must be the correct length.
  • What are the weight and strength requirements?
  • Will the work be indoors or outdoors? There are specific fasteners and finishes for both applications.
  • What are your security requirements? Theft? Injury, accident or self-harm? Vandalism?

Levels ofsecurity

Levels of Security

Our fasteners are divided into three different levels of security.

Level one security fasteners are entry-level products that provide basic security to deter petty thieves and vandals. It’s easy to buy a driver toolset to fit these recess shapes from a hardware or auto-parts store.

Level two security fasteners are a step-up. The recess shapes are less common, so tools are not readily available.

Level three security fasteners offer the highest level of protection. This range includes one-way fasteners that do not have a tool for easy, covert removal, so evidence of tampering is left behind by any would be crook.

The UNISET fastener range is unique; its bespoke recess shapes and driver tools can only be purchased by the organisation registered to that shape.

Our security fastener range and design capabilities are second to none. For a more detailed look at our products visit our products page.
