Neodymium Disc Magnets
Apex has over 100 options for Neodymium disc magnets! These circular, flat magnets are the most commonly used magnet shape. Neodymium disc magnets have significant strength—pull forces range from 5 ounces to 1174.9 pounds per magnet, while diameters range from 2 millimeters to 6 inches—and come in a variety of sizes, thicknesses, materials, and coatings, making it easy to find the perfect product for your next project.
These versatile magnets can be used in many industries:
- To hang up knives in kitchens to free up counter space
- To hang up lights, picture frames, posters, artwork, and much more!
- Hold fishing rods in place on fishing boats
- Classroom demonstrations to show magnetic fields
- To hang up magnetic signage
Neodymium Countersunk Magnets
You probably are more familiar with countersunk magnets than you believe. Countersunk magnets look like washers with a raised surface and hole in the center. The wedge and the hole exist so the countersunk magnet (also known as countersink magnet) can be anchored in place with a single screw. We sell a variety of countersunk blocks with holes that allow you to use screws, nails, or bolts to attach the magnet to a different surface.
These magnets come in two basic variations: all-magnet countersinks, which are solid pieces of magnet, and POT magnets, which house magnets inside steel casings. There are both advantages and disadvantages to both types of magnets, such as they are brittle– too many turns of a screw can cause the neodymium to crack.
These strong magnets can be used in many different ways:
- Magnetic latches to keep doors, cabinets, lockers, or basically anything you want to keep open or closed
- Hold furniture in place on the floor
- To keep artwork attached to a wall
- Hold up objects in workshops
Hook magnets are hooks with a magnetic base that come in various shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. All you need is a metal surface to use a hook magnet—no need to deal with the hassle of glue or nailing something into a wall. Because of this, hook magnets are a practical and easy way to hang all kinds of objects both inside and outside. These compact magnets have a high resistance to demagnetization, and can even hold 200-pound objects! Since these magnets are very strong, it is important to make sure that you don’t keep two magnets too close to each other to prevent them from shattering if they are attracted to each other.
Hook magnets have many uses in businesses:
- Convenient and safe way to hang ladles, spoons, and spatulas, without taking up the necessary space in kitchens
- Construction and window washing to haul the platform down to safety
- Hang string lights
- To hang towels, bags, and jump ropes on exercise equipment
