Security Fasteners & Tamper Proof Screws

 

Tanner Bolt & Nut Corp. features five types of security fasteners with unique drive configurations, each available in different head styles and materials. Security fasteners are cap screws, machine screws, self-drilling screws,concrete screws, sheet metal screws, nuts or bolts manufactured with a tamper proof or tamper resistant drive or head style. Installation tools are available.

The theory behind tamper-resistant fasteners is to make a fastener whose loosening requires a tool that a tamperer is unlikely to have on hand at the time of opportunity for tampering. There is no expectation that it will be impossible for a tamperer to obtain the driver. Rather, the main idea is simply that most tamperers will not bother to seek out and obtain a driver. In the cases of vandalism prevention and theft prevention, since most vandalism and theft incidents are simply crimes of easy opportunity, the idea is to “raise the bar” and make the opportunity less convenient.

A tamper proof fastener takes the theory one notch further. Some tamper proof screws require a tool that is proprietary and can only be obtained with the purchaser submitting documentation as to its intended use. Others can be installed with standard wrenches, but when tightened to a specific torque head shears off, leaving a conical, round, or flat head design that completely protects your property.

Protect Schools, Day Cares, & Playgrounds with Pecora Security Sealants

Protect Students & Young Children

With September right around the corner, there is no better time then when the students are off for summer, to make the necessary repairs to the interior and exterior of the building. Before making these repairs, the use and installation of Security Sealants should be strongly considered. Schools and similar facilities like; day cares and playgrounds, are very prone to idle tampering by students and young children. This idle tampering and vandalism leads to damages to the facilities, which in turn will require costly repairs. Along with the costly repairs, the chance of young children ingesting the extracted material can lead to a number of health related problems. Because of this, Security Grade Sealants are becoming a more viable option to traditional caulks and sealants. These Tamper Resistant and Tamper Proof sealants can significantly extend the life of the building and prevent costly damages and repairs. All of the areas within the reach of students and young children, both interior and exterior, should be properly sealed with security sealants to protect against potential tampering. Pecora DynaPoxy™ EP-1200 & DynaFlex™ SC, both available at Tanner, are great options to secure your schools, day cares, and playgrounds. Shop for Pecora DynaPoxy™ EP-1200 & DynaFlex™ SC here.

Why Choose Security Sealants?

Pecora School Coverage
(1) Use Pecora Dynaflex (2) Use Pecora Dynatrol II

Pecora Security Sealants not only protect the building itself, but they also protect the inhabitants inside and around the building. In facilities like schools, day cares, and playgrounds there can be much more at stake other than just the potential repair cost due to tampering. Pecora Security Sealants have the necessary properties to prevent this idle tampering and vandalism. In addition to the safety factors these security sealants present, user can also benefit from:

  • Decreased risk of lawsuits
  • Decreased maintenance costs
  • Increased service periods of sealants
  • Decreased replacement costs

Pecora Security Sealants vs Standard Caulking & Sealants

Shore Hardness ScaleMost caulks and sealants can be easily tampered with or are pickable. Pickable meaning, these caulks and sealants can be interfered with to the point of removal. Most of these flexible sealants are usually based on urethane or silicone chemisties and can be pulled away to expose a joint.

Pecora Security Sealants, often referred to as Tamper-Proof or Tamper-Resistant, far exceed the hardness and tensile strength of standard caulks and sealants. This makes it much more difficult for these security sealants to be dug into, cut, or pulled from a joint. A Tamper-Proof  or Tamper-Resistant Security Sealants requires a Shore A hardness of up to 80+ and 50, respectively, this prevents them from easily being extracted from a joint. Typically architectural sealants are designed for durability, weatherproofing, and accommodating expansion joint movement. Pecora DynaPoxy™ EP-1200 is a Tamper-Proof security sealant available at Tanner.

When using Tamper-Proof Sealants, you lose all movement capabilities. But when Tamper Resistance was necessary and not having any movement capabilities was unacceptable, a new class of sealant was needed. Pecora stepped in and came out with this new class of security sealants. The newly formulated sealants can be classified as Tamper-Resistant as opposed to Tamper Proof. These products have limited movement capabilities and can be used in properly designed joints. The sealants will allow for both a moving joint as well as having an acceptable level of tamper resistance. Pecora DynaFlex™ SC is a Tamper-Resistant security sealant available at Tanner.

Make Your Facility Tamper Proof with Break-Away Nuts

Break-Away Nuts

Security is a major concern on most peoples minds these days. From securing correctional institutions to protecting from vandalism in public places, having the right security products makes all the difference. At Tanner we are your premier source for security fasteners and nuts, providing you with a variety of different products. When it comes to looking for security nuts, the level of protection it offers should be the main determining factor for which type you buy. You can choose from either tamper resistant or tamper proof security nuts. Tamper resistant security nuts are extremely difficult to remove without the proper tools. While tamper proof security nuts have no removal tools, which makes them nearly impossible to remove once they are installed. The tamper proof security nuts that we offer here at Tanner are Break-Away Nuts.

Break-Away Nuts are designed as a one-piece unit that have a break-away hex head that leaves a conical shaped tamper proof nut behind.  These tamper proof nuts are used extensively in places where high security is a key factor such as: correctional institutions, hospitals, schools, public places, and retail stores. Break-Away Nuts help secure a variety of products, prevent unauthorized removal of, and secure access to equipment and facilities. They can be used for a number of critical security fastening applications where removal of a fixture is not intended and when preventing tampering is important. Break-Away Nuts are installed like a typical nut, except once the proper torque is achieved, the hex head breaks away leaving a conical shaped tamper proof nut behind. The conical shaped tamper proof nut that is left behind has no removal tool available making it nearly impossible to remove once installed.

Break-Away Nuts are manufactured from either ZAMAC 5 zinc alloy or 304 stainless steel. The stainless steel variety provides greater corrosion resistance and boasts high-strength properties compared to the zinc alloy nuts. These security nuts are typically tapped to standard bolt dimensions, but are also available to be tapped oversize for hot dip galvanized fasteners.

Break Away Nuts Material Specifications

If you are looking for a tamper resistant security nut instead, be sure to check out our line of Trident Nuts. We have a number of different sizes available and are one of the few distributors that offer Large Diameter Trident Nuts. If you plan on buying any of these Trident Nuts be sure to pick up the correct sockets and accessories to help install these security nuts correctly.

Custom Installations Are Simpler with Specialized Mounting Hardware

Specialized mounting hardware, such as security screws and fasteners are designed to resist tampering by the public, or an un-trained person. Specialized mounting hardware is designed with a what’s called a tamper-proof head. These fasteners require a specially designed tool that isn’t commonly available on the shelf of the local hardware store. You may see this type fastener on the walls in a public restroom.

The tamper resistant design prevents vandals from loosening the hardware that holds the fixtures or stalls together. Some of the fasteners have an uniquely shaped head, that a traditional Phillips or straight screwdriver won’t fit. The fastener is installed and removed by a tool that only an installation contractor, or factory authorized service professional would carry.

Other security screws have a traditional shaped head, like a Torx or Square drive screw. These security fasteners are modified, and have a small pin in the middle of the slot. Because of the pin, a standard tool won’t fit into the fastener. Installing or removing the fasteners requires a modified tool that features a hole in the tip which allows the tip to fit over the pin.

Security screws are also used in manufacturing. When the internal parts of a machine or electronic device cannot be serviced by the homeowner, or if opening an appliance, such as a microwave oven, could damage the item or the person, a specialized fastener is used. These fasteners prevent damage to the equipment, and potential harm to the owner.

Specialty tamper resistant fasteners are available in a full spectrum of steel grades, and fastener styles. They are available in stainless steel, alloy steel, and case hardened steel. Corrosion resistant coatings are available for exterior uses. These fasteners save property owners thousands of dollars by thwarting equipment vandalism, tampering and physical damage.

As manufacturing systems continue to advance, many manufacturers are designing their own fastening systems. Specialty products such as solar panels and composition deck boards are installed with hardware that is specifically designed for the project. When mounting a solar panel, not only does it have to be mounted securely to the building or roof, but the panel should also be easily removable in case of damage or needed maintenance. Solar panel mounting hardware is designed to provide both easy installation, and access for service. The right kind of installation hardware can save the installation contractor time, which results in a more profitable job.

Many new building are being designed with solar roof panels. As the demand grows for increasingly green energy solutions, architects and building owners are choosing to install the solar panels at the time the building is constructed. Specialty solar panel mounting hardware is recommended for this application. The uniquely designed hardware fasten the buildings metal roofing systems to the under-girding trusses or framework, and at the same time provides the studs to which the solar panels mount after the roof panels are installed.

When designing a custom hardware installation, make sure to research the installation options ahead of time.  A proper installation with the right fastener will save time, money and can prevent installation headaches.

Solar Panel Theft is Getting More Attention

A recent article over at RenewableEnergyWorld.com focuses on the growing problem of solar panel theft. Solar theft grew by 15% in 2009, and has likely been on the rise ever since. The 15% figure, which the article quotes, is courtesy of SolarInsure, an insurance company specializing the solar industry.

So solar theft is on the rise. What can you do about? The article provides a good run down of options including different types of alarm systems, creating physical barriers, and the use of breakaway bolts, an item we carry at Tanner.

Note, in the article, they refer to breakaway bolts as “tighten-and-break” anti-theft screws. However, the more common term in the industry is breakaway bolts. These are truly tamperproof. Without extraordinary measures, it would be impossible for a thief to remove the bolts, but keep in mind, the same goes for you as the installer or solar panel owner.

The PV Industry Tackles Solar Theft

Specialty Mounting Hardware

Security screws are designed for installations where the fasteners are visible to the public, and the installer, manufacturer or owner want to ensure their equipment isn’t tampered with, damaged or removed. In a setting such as a public restroom, tamper proof fasteners are used to mount the stalls to the walls. These fasteners are installed with fastener specific tools. Some of the fasteners have a unique shaped slotted head. A traditional Phillips or straight screwdriver won’t fit into the head, and the fastener is installed and removed by a tool that only a the installation contractor would carry. Other security fasteners have a traditional shaped slotted head, like a Torx or Square drive. These fasteners have a small pin in the middle of the slot. A standard tool won’t fit into the fastener’s head. Installing or removing the fasteners requires a special tool that features a dimple in the tip which allows the tip to fit over the pin. These fasteners are called Pin-Head fasteners.
