Spacers and Standoffs are two common types of positioning electronic hardware.
They provide sturdy support, alignment and spacing to a variety of applications such as circuit board assemblies, panels and doors.
A standoff is a threaded separator of defined length used to raise one assembly above another.
They are usually round or hex (for wrench tightening), often made of aluminum, brass, or nylon, and come in male-female or female-female forms. In electronics they are frequently used to raise a printed-circuit board above a surface.
Insulating standoffs keep two parts from touching each other, thereby preventing electrical shorts. These are made from Nylon.
We maintain a ready range of Spacers and Inserts
Through Internal Threaded Hex Standoff
These are Internal Threaded Spacers and are available in Brass-Nickel coated, Nylon and Stainless Steel. Other options on special order. Suitable for using with screws at both ends providing a clean finish. Nylon Spacers may have metal inserts to provide stronger threads. These will however be separated by a non conductive material to ensure insulation.
E.T. Spacers [Male-Female Spacers]
These are Internal-External Threaded Spacers. Standoffs can be round, hexagonal or square in shape. These are Male-Female type.
Our range of Stainless Steel Male-Female Standoffs are made from AISI 303 and on request AISI-316 can be provided.
Standoffs are available in a variety of materials including aluminium, brass, plastic, steel and stainless steel.
Round Nylon Spacers
These provide sturdy support, alignment and spacing to a variety of applications such as circuit board assemblies, panels and doors. In the world of electronic components and electronic hardware, standoffs are typically used to space circuit boards, panels, doors or gears.
These Round Unthreaded Spacers can be used for separation and insulation as well.
Our range is from 2.5mm to 5mm.
Unthreaded Spacers are available in Nylon. SS on special order.
Range : M2, M2.5, M3, M4, M5
