M8 Self Tapping Atlas Bolts

Manufactured from high tensile boron steel, Atlas Bolts provide a truly versatile and effective solution for a wide range of applications.

Each weather protected Atlas Bolt features a standard hexagonal drive head, ensuring easy installation using a suitable size drive socket attached to a hammer drill.

The lead-in thread of these self tapping bolts (also described as self tapping screws) is serrated with a series of notches which combines a cutting and sawing action during installation. This ensures that the bolt taps smoothly, easily and quickly into whatever substrate it is being screwed into.

These multi-purpose Atlas Bolts are often referred to as concrete bolts or concrete screws as they are the perfect concrete fixing. But we simply consider them an excellent, versatile fastening solution as they are also ideal for installation into other materials including: wood, brick, concrete block, stone, marble and slate.

Unlike expansion bolts such as Shield Anchors, which generate significant pressure on the surrounding substrate as they are installed, Atlas Bolts and Self Tapping Screws provide high load capability with low expansion forces. This means they can be installed closer to the edge of whatever they are tapping into without risk of causing damage. 

These M8 heavy duty self tapper bolts are ideal for fixing brackets or fixtures to walls or building fascias and are also widely used wherever a fast and easy installation is required.

These M8 bolts require an 8mm pilot hole to screw into and 10mm clearance hole in the fixture that is being secured to the concrete or wall. (8mm masonry drill bits available to buy on-line here


Atlas Hex Head Bolts are available in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm sizes, each offering a choice of lengths.

The bolt sizes we are most frequently asked for are the M8x60 bolts and M6x50 bolts, but all sizes are popular with our installers
