Threaded Rod, also referred to as Stud, Studding, All-thread or Threaded Bar, is a long rod or bar that has a screw thread along the full length. Threaded rod is a metal fastener, that is very similar to a bolt or screw, only longer and thicker, and without a head. The rod is the same width across its length, and the thread runs for the entire length. The distance between the grooves of the thread is known as the pitch. The pitch of our threaded rod varies according to size (see below).
Metals4U supply Mild Steel Threaded Rod in either Self Colour or in Bright Zinc Plated (BZP), in a wide range of metric sizes. The “M” designation stands for metric. The number proceeding this is the nominal diameter of the bar in millimetres. Therefore M10 threaded rod has a diameter of 10mm. When buying nuts and washers, ensure that the equivalent sizes are used. So an M10 threaded bar would need M10 washers and nuts.
