Leyton Fasteners technical support – Website and personal

Both our staff and our website are dedicated to help you find the right fastener for the job. Whilst clearly we cannot recommend what to use, we can offer support, guidance and knowledge to allow you to make the right choice. Nigel, our MD, has owned and managed the business for many years and has an encyclopaedic knowledge.   Our staff have simply years of experience, to give you the confidence to choose the right solutions.

Like many “worlds” the fasteners community has its own words and phases, descriptions and mnemonics. We can help you navigate the unique world of fasteners, to enable you to make the right decisions. Given the many varied styles of fixing, we can help you by having specific designs manufactured specifically for you. Whilst this may sound expensive, it can often be the only way to find the required design, in the material needed.
