Plastic dowels for mineral wool have the following structure:
Head – a plastic funnel-shaped cup to which the mineral wool is attached. The head is seated on a threaded rod.
Threaded rod – a metal sleeve secured in the plastic head and having external threading. The anchor is fastened to the base using the rod.
Rubber base – serves to seal the gap between the anchor and the wall/ceiling.
Washer – attached to the end of the rod, securing the anchor.
Thus, plastic anchors for mineral wool consist of a plastic head, a metal rod, and a rubber base. They are attached to the base by means of holes and twisting the rod.
Plastic dowels are used for:
Securing mineral wool insulation on ceilings and walls. They are used for insulating lightweight metal frame structures and panels.
Suspending various elements such as pipes, cables, and utilities. For example, in bathrooms, they are used to hang light fixtures and faucets.
Installing different equipment such as air conditioners, fans, exhaust systems, etc. The plastic coating ensures they won’t damage surfaces.
Attaching towels, curtains, and blinds in bathrooms and kitchens. The plastic material won’t scratch glass surfaces.
Hanging shelves, paintings, and mirrors. The adjustable length of the rod allows for precise positioning.
Thus, plastic anchors are versatile and can be used for various purposes in both household and construction settings.
