Sherex manufactures hundreds of millions of rivet nuts, compression limiters, clinch nuts, wedge locking washers, and other fastening products every year.

One thing Sherex doesn’t really dabble with is screws. That is unless the right opportunity comes along.

A local company reached out to see if we can help out with a custom screw product that needed to be easy to install, and durable enough to go into high-traffic environments and withstand extreme weather conditions. Of course we can help! 6-Lobe Socket Screw

Sherex provides a Tamper-Resistant, 6-Lobe Socket Screw to a company that manufactures truncated dome sidewalks. Truncated dome are essentially ground surface indicators designed to assist and warn pedestrians who are blind or visually impaired. You may see them on sidewalks at intersections, at the bottom or top of stairwells, or on a train platform. These screws are stainless steel and heavy duty, withstanding the elements and all kinds of pressure and vibration.

Sherex has been providing millions of these countersunk fasteners every year to the Buffalo, NY company which manufactures them. So when you’re on that subway platform waiting for your train, or taking the dogs for a walk, take a look on the ground. Chances are the truncated dome sidewalk you’re stepping on is fastened with a Sherex Tamper-Resistant 6-Lobe Socket Screw!
