Innovative fixing solutions for efficient insulation

As the world looks to become more energy efficient, one of the ways we can help is by improving the efficiency of our buildings, not only with the use of insulation boards to keep our buildings warmer, reducing energy usage and costs, but through proper installation of these boards and ensuring that even the smallest holes are optimally sealed. 

Discover everything you need to know about insulation fixings, from why you should use them, to how to pick the right ones for your applications in our guide below.

Why should I use insulation fixings?

The insulation plugs from CELO have been specially developed for external insulation and reliably ensure thermal separation, thus preventing the formation of thermal bridges in the first place. Discover the advantages the fastening elements from CELO offer you:

Best Nylon Quality icon

Non-heat conducting material

Best Nylon Quality

The insulation plugs and screws are made of high quality, ageing, weather and UV resistant nylon, which is not thermally conductive and thus provides thermal separation.
Made in Germany icon

Highest quality standards

Made in Germany

The insulation plugs go through the entire development process in Aichach (Bavaria, Germany): From the idea, to development, production and worldwide shipping, we meet the highest quality standards!
A4 stainless steel icon

Corrosion resistant

Protection against corrosion

The use of stainless steel and zinc flake coating on the metal components provides permanent rust and corrosion protection and prevents damage and safety risks.
integrated sealing of the ips plug screws

Integrated sealing

Pre-assembled sealing ring

The sealing ring made of foamed EPDM is UV-resistant, ensures a permanent sealing and saves you the installation step of sealing afterwards with silicone or acrylic compound.
