Washers - the unseen assistance

Washers are typically used in those places where a resting weight has to be distributed over a wider area. Thus they are frequently used in order to prevent the head of a screw from boring into the wood. Whether it is a bookshelf or a window sill, washers prevent the wood or uPVC structure of the frame from being damaged by the screw which, ultimately, could lead to instability of the structure or even breakage. Even today washers are a useful and widely used assistant for those using soft materials such as wood or plastics. The discs are made of stainless steel which is then coated with zinc and perfectly distribute the weight applied and ensure that once assembly has been completed there are no marks on material or frame.

Din 125 is the German designation for the most widely used washer today. However there is a washer to suit every size of screw, for example size Din 9021. Both Din 125 or Din 9021 washers can either be ordered directly from a specialist DIY shop, or purchased as part of a screw set. Thanks to the  zinc coating washers are very hard wearing and resistant to rust and can be stored in large quantities for long periods of time in ones work shed or cellar hobby room. Generally speaking, washers are very cheap and widely used. They can prevent a number of problems which can be caused by careless screwing of two objects together where not used.

Washers - often irreplaceable

In order to describe the exact function of a washer, a concrete example can be given. Washers of the categories mentioned above are relatively often employed in order to distribute the weight of glass and frame more evenly. In this case the washer is placed under a nut and prevents the nut from being tightened to such a degree that it causes damage to the underlying material. The screw is then not noticed in the frame. The zinc-coated surface makes the stainless steel discs very resistant to acids and other chemicals and distortion - even under heat - is less frequent.

Those planning new windows or all-round renovations this year are well recommended to discover more about the advantages of the various categories of washer. These handy little gadgets can also help to carry out little window adjustments, or the replacement of a handle. The trained eye can quickly detect where a screw has deformed the material or where the force used to insert a screw has been evenly distributed by a well-placed washer. And this also prevents the window becoming damaged or the frame from becoming cracked - and where light and air could penetrate. Washers of each category are a flexible helper which can find use in every DIY workshop or hobby room.
