Stand Off

At Fastener Innovation Technology, inc. we have more than four decades’ experience producing high-torque, high-quality, fasteners for the aerospace and defense industries, including a full range of standoffs.
From our state-of-the-art facilities in California, we are able to fulfill clients’ standoff requirements, regardless of size, with unrivalled lead times and competitive prices.

Standoff fasteners perform an essential role in aviation construction. Designed and installed to maintain a gap between two other components, standoffs help perform several functions. In some instances, standoffs can be used to promote the accurate positioning of screws and fixers, however more common reasons for the use of standoffs include to provide additional thermal insulation, to reduce friction, or to promote airflow between the two parts. Although standoffs are often used in a similar context to spacers, standoffs are threaded and, as such, in addition to maintain the gap between two component parts, they offer additional fastening capabilities and contribute to the strength or rigidity of the airframe assembly.  Available in female-female, male-female and male-male configurations, standoffs usually have a hexagonal head, to allow for convenient adjustment with a wrench.
