Technifast’s threaded spacer and standoff ranges form integral components in a wide variety of assembly applications, spanning industries such as automotive, aviation and most commonly, electronic hardware.

Threaded spacers and standoffs are frequently used to create a specified space between two objects and to properly position parts within an assembly. The threaded spacers and standoffs supplied by Technifast are available with a rounded or hex exterior, which allows for easy tightening by hand or with a wrench.

The majority of its standard range is stocked in Technifast’s warehouse facility, ensuring it can meet the demands of customers quickly and cost-effectively. Standard nominal thread sizes range from M4 through to M12 in the round threaded spacer, with diameters from 7mm to 15mm.
