Hammer and Frame Fixings are used for securing timber or plastic to metal or masonry. The plug expands when hammered in, to create a secure anchor and can be unscrewed to be removed, making it a simple mechanism. These small pieces of plastic or metal are put into a wall mainly for support.
Hammer fixings are specifically designed to have the screw hammered in while Frame fixings are used for more heavy-duty applications for attaching uPVC, wood, and metal frames to wood or PVC masonry. Once mounted, you add a screw to the middle of the Hammer fixing and use your hammer to tap the screw in. These allow you to hammer a screw into a wall or surface.
Frame fixings go into frames for support. Frame fixings are typically used with frames where you require something to attach securely to a wall. These mechanisms are also useful for securing heavy items and in industrial settings. Fixings are also helpful in hollow walls where there isn’t an eligible stud to hit.
