12 mm StonePin
This Stoneclip support fixing is suitable for all surfaces (rough and rougher) and cavities from 40 mm to 115 mm and loads/ pin of 81 kgs/
clip @30mm down to 12 kgs/ clip@ 115mm cavity .This product has been tested by Stoneclip.com to perform to these specifications . We utilized
Bostik Seal n Flex 1 as the filling and Bonding agent for our testing but far stronger more permanent but not flexible results are achievable using
product such as Hilti HIT- RE 500 . There is other products available but none, including the above are being put forward as the one to use . The
project specifier is the one to do this . The benefit derived from the use of the filling and bonding agent is in the type of substrate and the voids
that may be in it , that the fixings are being installed into . This filling material helps in the installation into concrete filled blockwork , that can
sometimes be bony and not a solid medium . The 12 mm shaft used is our Top & Bottom shaft fitted with the T & B head and the Intermediate 40 mm round
head , both are attached using our shaft drilled system with the fixing a 6mm x 18 mm S S stud .
|This rough plastered concrete block wall filled the bill
for the type of substrate to test the product on . It is rough and parts as
we drilled into it were found to be bony and only part filled .

driven home to show the expansion of the end that will happen in the
penetration in the substrate .
|This is showing the above StonePin with the expanded end
and another StonePin that has had the end of it filled with Bostik Seal n
Flex 1 , prior to being installed in the 16 mm hole in the substrate and
expanded prior to the shaft being fitted to it .
|This shows the tube of BOSTIK Seal n Flex 1 and 2 of the
12 MM DROP IN ANCHORS that have been filled with the filler and bonding
agent prior to being installed into the 2 x 16 mm x55 mm deep holes that
have been drilled to accommodate them.
|This shows the 2 DIA installed in their holes prior to the
punch being used to drive the internal plug to expand the base in the hole .
|This shows the punch that has been driven into the LHS
anchor to a depth of a further 17 mm to drive the plug home . When doing
this the filling and bonding agent has been transferred to fill the voids of
space created when this action occurs and then if there is any voids in the
substrate itself they are penetrated AND if there is none it is forced back
around the outside of the DIA in the 16 mm drilled hole .
|This shows the 2 shaft fixings installed into the DIA's
with the attached Top & Bottom heads on them . Prior to installing the 12
mm shafts into the DIA, it has been filled to the front edge with the filler
and bonding agent AND then as the shaft is installed to where it has to be
to effect plumb on the panel the filler is further forced into the DIA and
THEN WHEN IT IS IN THE RIGHT POSITION , THE NUT AND WASHER ARE THEN
TIGHTENED BACK ONTO THE FACE OF THE SUBSTRATE . THE PENETRATION IS FULL
AND THE EXCESS FILLER COMES OUT AROUND THE NUT . This is the point where you
effect the adjustment of the shaft or you should if necessary shorten the
shaft at this point BEFORE INSTALLATION ,allowing the 25 mm of the shaft to
be in the threaded front of the DIA .
At this point if you are able to establish the finished alignment of the panels you
are able to drill the holes deeper into the substrate to effect the exact finished
position of the front disc on the 12 mm shaft being installed
( by allowing that the shaft does screw into the Drop in Anchor by
25 mm when the bullet is driven home with the supplied driving pin) .
Doing this eliminates any trimming of the shaft length .

. By using the 1.5 mm shim as a rest and protector for the top of the panel
, you are effecting a 3 mm space under the shaft . The joint width is
effected by the installer to what he wants , on the underside of the above
panel --the same way as with all Stoneclip fixings .
