When you're planning an insulation project, remember that it's not always the big-ticket items that dictate your project's success—sometimes, the smallest components can have the largest impact. Insulation pins, or insulation hangers, may be small, but they are important to any insulation system. Here at BS Fixings, we focus on providing a comprehensive range of these essential items. Specifically, there are two main types to consider: self-adhesive pins, ideal for quick and easy applications, and perforated base pins, designed for a more robust fix in demanding environments. Understanding the strengths of each type can significantly enhance the effectiveness of your insulation, ensuring it is as secure and efficient as possible.

Self-Adhesive Insulation Pins

Self-adhesive insulation pins are perfect for quick and easy installations where mechanical fasteners are not suitable. These pins come with a pre-applied adhesive base that can be fixed directly to smooth, clean surfaces such as air ducts and interior walls. After removing the protective backing, press the pin in place, attach the insulation material, and secure it with a self-locking washer. This method is ideal for lighter insulation materials and offers a clean, drill-free installation process.

Perforated Base Insulation Pins

For heavier or bulkier insulation materials, perforated base insulation pins are the go-to choice. These pins feature a metal base with multiple perforations which improve the adhesive’s grip on the surface. To install, you typically apply a bead of adhesive to the base, press it onto the substrate, and then pierce the insulation material over the pin, securing it with a locking washer. The robust design of perforated base pins makes them suitable for more demanding applications, including exterior walls and ceilings where durability is key.

We stock self-adhesive and perforated base pins in aluminium, 304 stainless steel, and galvanised steel on our website.
