What are Flanged Socket Head Cap Screws?

A flange is typically a small projecting flat rim, collar or rib on a screw for strengthening or attachment. Flange screws are extremely secure when used in specific applications.

These screws distribute pressure where the screw meets the surface without taking up the space needed for a washer. This eliminates the need for a separate washer, saving space and money.

Flanged head

A flanged head can be any head style (except the countersunk styles) with the addition of an integrated flange at the base of the head. This eliminates the need for a flat washer.

Flanged socket head cap screws from ITA Fasteners can be used on moderately heavy loads. While it is not suitable for heavy-duty applications, neither is it suitable for fastening extremely soft or thin materials. It comes with an inbuilt washer to create a flange which can keep the screw head from crushing the underlying material. It has a cylindrical head and hexagonal drive style which ensures accurate drilling. Moreover, like any other socket fastener, it gives the surface a nice and rugged look by protruding above the installation surface.

At ITA Fasteners, you can purchase our flanged socket head cap screws in stainless steel, carbon steel, and alloy steel to bear more wear and tear while also making it more corrosion resistant. They are also fully threaded and come with moderate tensile strength. Like we mentioned earlier, this tensile strength is mostly suitable for moderate loads. The head height of these screws is measured from the top of the head to the bottom of the flange. The length of the screw is measured from under the flange.
