It is with much regret that the CFA has decided to suspend all training activities due to the health risks associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19). An email will be sent to each of the registered delegates that this affects explaining the situation in more details.

The CFA apologies to all delegates for any inconvenience this causes and appreciates their understanding of our efforts to put the health and safety of our industry collegues above all other considerations.

We will review the situation in line with Government guidelines and will offer an update prior to 1st August 2020. We look forward to seeing all our colleagues once normal services resume.

The Construction Fixings Association.

Everything you need to know about drilled in fixings and anchors for concrete, masonry & plasterboard.

First established in 1979 the Construction Fixings Association represents the major manufacturers of fixing systems which are set in drilled holes in all construction materials including Concrete, Brickwork, Blockwork, Stonework and Plasterboard - many with European Technical Approvals (ETAs). The CFA offers support to all stakeholders involved in the "Fixings chain" - Specifiers, Distributors, Contractors, Installers and Testers and works with UK and European bodies to satisfy our mission statement of "Ensuring best fixings practice".

The three panels below are dedicated to the three key stakeholders whose interests we serve. The menus under each heading have been specially selected to contain topics of particular interest to each. Specifiers clicking on Guidance Notes, for instance, will see a selection of those documents more likely to be of interest to them. The full list of each subject is available from the main navigation bar.
