Wedge Washers are shims that can compensate for certain angles. So Wedge Washers are perfectly made for this and are always cut at an angle. Steel or stainless steel is always used in production.

Wedge Washers made of stainless steel or steel have become indispensable in industry, steel construction or locksmithery. Since U-beams and double-T-beams have been available, which are installed or used thousands of times a day in buildings or steel constructions, the industry can no longer do without stainless steel Wedge Washers. These little metal helpers, which can be made of either V4A stainless steel or V2A stainless steel, are an indispensable compensating element when it comes to connecting beams with "sloping" surfaces with straight screw connections. So that the screw head is not distorted or tilted. Every double-T beam or every U beam has these small bevels towards the end of the flange. It is essential that these chamfered flanks are underlaid with Wedge Washers during installation and bolting when the bolted joint is tightened. What would happen if a screw cap were to be inserted through both steel beams, then screwed tightly together but without the use of the Wedge Washers. The underside of the screw head would adapt to the slant of the double-T beam and bend. This would cause the screw head to lose strength and the structure of the screw would change, resulting in loss of strength and stress cracking. The opposite side of the screw would be secured by the nut. The same would happen with the nut. The thread of the nut would be subjected to one-sided load and the thread would be destroyed. The screw connection would lose strength and be pulled completely at an angle. For this reason, the use of Tape washers is strongly recommended for bolting to double-T beams with sloping flanks. Wedge Washers made of stainless steel are still rustproof and thus protected against corrosion. The Wedge Washers can be made of stainless steel V2A or V4A.

Wedge Washers DIN 434
Many people will ask which stainless steel or steel Wedge Washers DIN 434 stands for? This DIN 434 indicates that this type of Wedge Washers, whether made of steel or stainless steel V2A or V4A, is optimized and suitable for a U-beam. Here, the optimum fit of DIN 434 is the top priority. The angle of a DINB 434 Wedge Washers is 8 degrees as the angle of inclination and therefore this Wedge Washers can compensate exactly this angle on a U-beam, so that the head of the screw is not tilted or precedes an uneven load. Now let us explain briefly what a U-beam is? A beam carrier that is designed as a U-shaped beam. The U refers to the front view when looking at the beam from the front.
Wedge Washers DIN 435
DIN 434 and DIN 435 are often almost confused when it comes to Wedge Washers. This happens quickly when you consider that DIN 435 is almost identical to DIN 434, and only the last digit is decisive in selecting the correct Wedge Washers. DIN 434 stands for U-beams and their compensation on an angle bevel. DIN 435 is intended to provide I-beams with an optimum angle bevel to such an extent that the screw or the screw head is always cleanly straight and cannot tilt. But what exactly is an I-beam? This shape is obtained with a steel beam if you also look at the beam from the front. This is how you recognize an "I". In the past, everyone used to talk about the double T-beam as the "I" beam. However, the leg widths of the I-beams differ from those of a double-T-beam Wedge Washers.
The assembly of Wedge Washers
Many questions arise as to how exactly Wedge Washers are actually fitted. We would like to take a closer look at this question today. We assume that you have already aligned your steel constructions in the company and that you have already drilled the holes for the screws through all beams. Once this step has been completed, you can unpack the Wedge Washers supplied by us from your package. Make sure that the Wedge Washers are clean and without any kinks and edges and compare that the angle of the wedge washers to the angle of the beam is the same, so that a straight, even surface is obtained again when the Wedge Washers is installed rotated. If this is the case, you can position the Wedge Washers on the carrier. Attention: please install rotated to the inclined flanked carrier! The same applies to the opposite side of the beam. Now put the screw through and before you tighten it check again the optimal fit and position of the Wedge Washers. Then tighten the screw. The head of the screw and the nut must not "bend". If this is the case, you have successfully completed the assembly. Follow the same procedure for all further assemblies.
