Eye nuts (eyenuts) are fasteners with a looped head. They are primarily round or oval like these:
They are designed to receive a hook or rope. Sometimes the nuts are load rated which means they have been tested for their strength in vertical lifting. Eye nuts that are not load-rated are designed for use with tie-downs and guiding wires.
Graphskill manufactures a third style - the Hot Formed Weldless Eyenut.
This unique design is manufactured from a solid round bar which is then heated to allow the end to be flattened and the hole punched and therefore removes potential 'weld' weak spots.
Because of the flattened end, these are ideally suited to a hanger style pipe support, using a 3 bolt pipe clip. 3 bolt pipe clips would often be used where the pipe is perhaps insulated so that the hanger rod would be outside of the insulation
A 3 bolt pipe clip:
As you can see from this stylized schematic of a 3-bolt pipe clip, the 'hanger rod' just seems to be there...
.. but in reality, you have a weldless eyenut there that the bolt goes through to fasten to the 3 bolt pipe clip, and then a length of studding is screwed into the top of the eyenut - like this:
Graphskill manufacture a range of these hot-formed weldless eyenuts but non - standards can also be manufactured
Our standards are:
All dimenSions in mm with a manufacturing tolerance of 1 / - 1mm
We can also manufacture bespoke and left-hand thread styles
