Captive panel screws are UL approved

Several members of a family of self-clinching captive panel screw products from PEM are UL-approved and designed specifically for tool-only operation.

Suited to the attachment of thin metal panels in applications where subsequent access will be necessary, these captive screws also serve to keep loose parts to a minimum and eliminate risks associated with hardware that can loosen, fall out, and damage internal components.

Type PFC2P are recessed-head, spring-loaded panel fastener assemblies, which feature a Phillips drive and can be installed permanently in thin aluminium or steel sheets. Type PFC4, on the other hand, is a spring-loaded panel fastener assembly with Phillips drive permanently install in stainless steel sheets with hardness of HRB 88 or less. A third version, Type PF10, is a flush-mounted panel screw components combine a screw with slot drive, retainer, and receptacle nut for permanent installation in thin aluminium or steel sheets.

All types are manufactured from stainless steel to promote high corrosion resistance and can be ordered with a DuraBlack finish to satisfy particular cosmetic requirements
