It's a humble piece of hardware that most people don't usually give much thought to, but you'll find washers used in all kinds of mechanical installations and construction situations. Placed beneath the head of a bolt or a nut, washers offer a smooth bearing surface. They're used to distribute the load of a nut and bolt fastening over a wider area, thus making it more secure. They can also be used to make small adjustments to fixings by inserting extra washers and increasing the gap between a nut or bolt and another surface. Having a washer beneath the head of the fastening makes for a neater finish where fastenings are on display too.
At Simply Bearings, you'll find we stock a wide selection of both light and heavy duty flat washers suitable for a range of different tasks. Whether you choose light duty flat washers or heavy ones, they are zinc-plated to ensure long life and good corrosion resistance.
