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.

Seal and Secure with Pecora’s DynaFlex SC and DynaPoxy EP-1200

Pecora DynaFlex SC is a unique one part, non-sag, tamper resistant elastomeric STPU (silyl-terminated polyurethane) joint sealant. It has many of the strengths of other two part security sealants, but with an easy to use application method. No mixing nozzles required here, instead DynaFlex can be installed quickly and easily with standard caulking equipment. DynaFlex can be used to seal any interior joints or openings that require a sealant. Suitable materials include: masonry to masonry, masonry to metal, or metal to metal. It can also be used on polycarbonate sheets for interior security glazing, but will require some priming to do so.

Dynaflex is designed to achieve high tensile and tear strengths, is abrasion resistance, and can achieve an average ultimate hardness of at least 55. Not only that, but it can withstand 25% total joint movement. With its rugged yet flexible attributes this sealant is ideal for institutional and correctional complexes as well as other public buildings and facilities. This sealant will prevent idle tampering and vandalism that could potentially endanger occupants, patients, and other citizens. Come shop for DynaFlex Sealants and Primers here.

DynaPoxy EP-1200
DynaPoxy EP-1200

DynaPoxy EP-1200 is a rigid, two part, high-solids, high-modulus epoxy resin compound. It is designed to be used along with DynaFlex or as an alternative product. DynaPoxy’s pick-proof properties makes it an ideal sealant for high security areas of prisons and other facilities. It has an outstanding adhesion to similar and dissimilar materials making it applicable for most areas. DynaPoxy’s high compressive strength and non-sag properties also allows it to be used as a structural adhesive for vertical and overhead bonding and grouting, as well as bolt embedment. DynaPoxy EP-1200 can be bought here as well as all of our other Security Products at TannerBolt.com.

Do I Really Need Special Fasteners for My Solar Panels?

Source: http://www.sxc.hu/profile- /hovard

 

Do you really need a lock on your door? Statistically speaking, depending on where you live, your lock may never be tested by a burglar. It may never serve its created purpose.  The greatest accomplishment it may boast is that it kept practical jokesters, like your fraternity brothers, at arm’s length. But should a thief or criminal try to open your door, whether or not you are at home, you will be glad the lock is there. The peace of mind is worth far more than the cost of the lock.  Some people go so far as to install an alarm system in their home, just on the chance somebody might break-in. They are not paranoid; they are protecting their investment. The same could be said of solar panel fasteners.

Solar panels provide a great return on the investment, but the initial cost can be sizeable. What if somebody decided to climb up on top of your roof and help themselves to your solar panels? In a day and age when thieves are brazen enough to steal copper tubing from church properties, it is not farfetched to think solar panels could be the next hot underground market item. If all it takes to protect your investment (and your peace of mind) is a specialty fastener, it makes no sense to use anything else. There are no guarantees in life, but you might as well make it more difficult for someone to take what rightfully belongs to you.

EJOT 3130851905 Solar Fastening System

Secure solar panel installation involves more than simply securing the panels to your roof. Truly secure installation includes methods that keep your property safe from thieves, too. Basic solar panel rack systems use regular, commercial hardware to fasten the panels to the racks. This means that anyone with a wrench the proper size could remove them. Security fasteners, on the other hand, require a special tool, making it more difficult for the average person to remove them without using something drastic like a grinding wheel to detach the panels. And any resident is sure to hear a grinding wheel being used on the roof.

When the philosopher, Socrates, was asked a question by one of his students, he typically responded with another question. The method came to be known as the Socratic method and is still used in educational circles today. So, to answer the question, “Do I really need special fasteners for my solar panels?” consider the following questions:

  • Does an automobile need a car alarm in order to function?
  • Does a house need dead bolts in order to be structurally sound?
  • Does your Wi-Fi need a password in order to connect to the Internet?

The answer, of course, is no. Your solar panels will collect solar energy whether or not they are installed with security fasteners. However, when you consider how the fasteners protect your investment, you quickly realize what a wise decision it would be to insist on them.

Why Solar Companies Need to Address Panel Theft

The purchase, assembly, and installation of solar panels represent a significant investment. The value of solar panels has made them an inviting target for resourceful thieves. Solar panels can have a retail price approaching $1,000 each for some panels.

Very few solar systems today have any security measures to prevent theft. In fact, most solar panel rack systems secure solar panels with simple commercial fasteners. This requires little effort on the part of thieves to remove them.

Where access is easy and the potential for tampering and theft is high, protect your investment with Tanner Security Fasteners. The cost of our solar security fasteners is minimal compared to the potential cost of replacing damaged or stolen solar panels.

Tanner Exhibits Two Major Trade Shows in September 2010

GlassBuild America- Las Vegas Convention Center Sept. 14-16, 2010 Booth 521
Door & Hardware Institute 35th Annual Expo- Navy Pier Chicago, IL. September 22-23, 2010 Booth 1710

Tanner Bolt and Nut Corporation will be participating in two major events this upcoming September. Tanner will be exhibiting at both GlassBuild America and the Door & Hardware Institute’s 35th Annual Expo. The events will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from September 14th to 16th and at Navy Pier, Chicago, Illinois from September 22nd to 23rd respectively. At both events, Tanner Bolt and Nut will exhibit innovative fastening, anchoring, cutting and safety solutions for the commercial and institutional construction industries.

GlassBuild America is now in its seventh year and it is the gathering place for the entire glass, window, and door industries in North America and is continually listed as one of the Top 200 trade shows in the U.S. by Tradeshow Week. This show floor is the central showcase for glass processing equipment, window and door manufacturing equipment, and the latest technologies for all types of glass and fenestration products in North America.

Tanner will feature anchoring products for concrete applications, construction and masonry fasteners, security fasteners and anchors, cutting tools for aluminum, steel and stainless steel, metal fastening systems and safety equipment.

Tanner Bolt &Nut Corporations is also an exhibitor in the Door and Hardware Institute’s 35th annual conference and exposition. This year’s expo is all about sustainability as a theme, regarding both “green” constructions as well as how it applies to the door industry’s businesses.

Tanner is on hand to exhibit their cutting edge door hardware products for hollow metal door distributors, door and window installers, security contractors and locksmiths. Products include anchors and screws for hollow metal frame installations, security screws, specialty fasteners and self-drilling screws for door hardware, hinge installations, and glazing, and cutting tools including hole cutters, metal cutting blades and abrasives.

Detention Security Hollow Metal Doors in Prisons

Detention security hollow metal doors and frames have been successfully used in detention and correctional facilities throughout the world. Architects, specifiers and end users understand the advantages of using Detention Security Hollow Metal in these applications.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE

To understand the advantages of hollow metal construction, consider first the hardware installation for the swinging door of a typical bar-grille cell front. The security hinges and lock encasement are actually accessible to the inmate since he is able to reach through the bars. Therefore, in many cases, the lock encasement must be continuously welded assemblies with cover plates welded in place to prevent inmate tampering. This situation makes repairs and maintenance both difficult and expensive.

For example, to repair a lock it is necessary to cut the cover plate loose with a torch, repair or replace the lock, then weld a new cover plate back in place. In the hollow metal assembly, the lock is mounted in a reinforced pocket, inside the door or frame and is protected by a heavy gauge cover plate fastened with security screws.

The flush type detention hollow metal door, severely limits the inmate’s access and visibility in any attempts to tamper with the cover plate and lock. Since inmate tampering is limited by the flush hollow metal design, cover plates and access panels can be mounted with tamper resistant screws in most cases rather than welding, thereby reducing the cost of installation, repair and maintenance.
