Traditional wood screws have a blunt thread angle of 60° (displaces material, risk of splitting) , have a thicker minor diameter thereby deforms the wood, so pre-drilling is recommended.
Extra Decking Screw
We are stocking this specialised product from Denmark with a reduced countersunk head, milling ribs and fibre-cut.
Wooden decks usually consist of thin planks; being outdoors, they must endure harsh environmental conditions. This is where deck screws come in. They are designed to resist corrosion, drive easily and lay smoothly against the deck surface. As they anchor timber or composite deck boards to structural timber or joists, to ensure a good smooth working, these screws have a parallel shank, with a self drilling and countersink feature. This enables the screw to be fastened in a single operation doing away with the necessity of predrilling the deck boards. Usually made from stainless steel or with a SS coating to prevent corrosion for outdoor use, its other special feature includes a high torque drive fitting such as hexagon, square and torx drives.
Produced in A4 (316) for outdoor use. Ideal for use in ACQ timber and other aggressive environment.
