Steel discs are a cheaper alternative to using two magnets to attract together. A magnet will attract to a steel surface with the same strength as it will to another magnet when in direct contact. However, the magnetic attraction between a magnet and a steel disc will be weaker than magnet to magnet when there is a gap between the two surfaces. These discs can be screwed in place with a countersunk screw and are designed to work with our range of disc, countersunk and pot magnets.
Here, you will also find a selection of stainless steel screws of various diameters. Stainless steel screws should be used to fix countersunk magnets in place as a mild steel screw will absorb some of the magnetism, reducing the magnet’s performance.
