Croft’s Anchor Mesh Sleeves – Case Study
Being an SME allows Croft to quickly respond to Customer’s bespoke requests, to do this Croft utilises their experience and in-house capabilities to tailor the products, sometimes going beyond previous capabilities. An example of this is Croft’s ability to supply custom, quality mesh sleeves to the construction industry.
Commonly referred to as ‘Bonded Anchor Mesh Sleeves’ these mesh sleeves provide a solution for adhesive anchoring bolts and screws into hollow walls and brickwork within the Fixings and Fastenings marketplace. The mesh is inserted into a drilled hole before an adhesive resin is injected into the wall followed by a Bolt or Screw.
Croft Filters were approached by a company who required mesh anchoring sleeves however, the sleeves had to be 1 meter long, to allow the user to cut the mesh down to length, or to the depth of the hole, in preparation for the anchoring bolt / screw. Although Croft had supplied mesh sleeves before, they had not supplied them as long as 1 meter and to the required diameters. This was partly due to not being asked to before and also due to not being possible to on conventional seam welders.
Therefore to meet the Customer’s demands, Croft invested time and resources into developing a specialist seam welder capable of manufacturing the Sleeves to the required length. Since then Croft has supplied thousands of sleeves to multiple Customers, within the construction industry, who see the benefits of using Stainless Steel mesh for the anchoring sleeves over alternative materials. Benefits such as the Stainless Steel being both durable and reliable whilst allowing the adhesive to distribute evenly within the wall / brickwork. The mesh also allows for marginal flexibility to allow the user to place firmly in the anchoring hole.
Custom Manufactured – Not only are Croft able to manufacture sleeves in sizes ranging from 6mm-32mm diameter, Croft can also manufacture sleeves to the customer’s exact specifications, offering any size with any crimping style to suit the Customers Needs
Quality of both product and service has been the key to Croft’s success; the Company takes great pride in understanding their customer’s needs, quickly supplying them with a high quality product that exceeds Customer’s expectations.
