The weather has been typically nasty to welcome in the new year, with lots of heavy winds being a particular feature up and down the country. These wild gusts have been responsible for large amounts of damage and it's time to start getting everything fixed up and battened down for February, which is threatening to be even worse. For the perfect partnership of fixings and fastenings, you have got BS Fixings and JCS to rely on. We have, throughout our many years of experience, formed close and lasting working relationships with a network of trusted manufacturers, engineers and suppliers. One of these organisations is JCS Hi-Torque ltd, which can trace its origins back more than 250 years.
Since 1768 JCS have continued to expand and innovate, introducing state-of-the-art machinery such as the first automatic turning lathe and the cold-forging machine created to manufacture hose clip screws. Today, JCS develop and manufacture a wide range of fastening solutions and, as a self-sufficient organisation with dedicated internal design, testing, toolmaking and finishing departments, holds approvals for British Standards, BSI Kitemark and Lloyd’s Register Type.
BS Fixings are extremely proud to supply a professional selection of products engineered by JCS Hi-Torque ltd, including:
Tamtorque® Sign Fixing Clamps - Tamtorque is an extremely versatile sign banding system, manufactured from tough, durable stainless steel. Packed with innovative features such as a unique 7-sided recessed socket and tamper-resistant screw, the Tamtorque sign clamping system can be used on posts of any shape, offering complete versatility for public, commercial and industrial signage as well as other fixing applications such as securing litter bins and control boxes. The stainless steel banding has no sharp edges and can be easily and safely re-used and re-adjusted to ensure cost-effectiveness.
Hi-Grip® Hose Clips - Worm drive or worm gear hose clamps are manufactured by JCS from marine grade stainless steel or zinc plated mild steel. Carrying BSI Kitemark and NATO approval, they are designed to withstand extreme conditions and are the industry standard around the world due to their proven excellence in corrosive environments.
Hi-Torque Hose Clamps - When extra reliability and safety is necessary, Hi-Torque stainless steel hose clamps fill the gap perfectly. Out-performing traditional nut & bolt clamps by offering more precise and uniform tightening which provides a much-improved sealing pressure, Hi-Torque hose clamps are installed quicker and use less space. Larger adjustment to each size allows inventory requirements to be reduced and there are no loose parts to cause problems when working in awkward spaces.
