“Buttonfix Ltd launched a metal version of our award-winning hidden panel fixings in 2019, having received multiple enquiries for a fire retardant product in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017. We needed to bring a fixing to market that would not compromise performance under the most testing of conditions.
Once our design was finalised we knew that finding the right die caster would be essential to the integrity of the finished product. BSC Diecasting and Finishing Ltd have been superb at working with us through this collaborative process.
We found that BSC were handily placed within the UK market due to their ability to produce conventional high pressure die castings and components from multi slide high pressure die casting machines.
Communication has always been open, friendly, and professional, with pains clearly taken by Kevin Perry, our Engineering Project Manager, to help us achieve a high-quality product and deliver the best customer service. Our project requires multiple components to be manufactured, assembled, metal finished, and kitted into one SKU for delivery to us.
Once the tool was made and samples were approved, delivery on the final product was efficient and on time. We have had a fantastic response to the Button-fix Type 1 Metal Fix and Button and it has been used in marine and maritime interiors, transport applications where vibration and shock loadings are high, and of course, for fire retardant panels too. BSC’s QA is excellent, and we can thoroughly recommend them as a British manufacturer”
