The SPAX MULTI head has recessed pocket segments. Edges are thus formed between the individual segments, which have a milling effect when they come into contact with wood. The head is countersunk into the wood cleanly and flush. If a SPAX with SPAX MULTI head is used to fasten a metal fitting, the non-recessed surfaces of the head brake the screw as it comes into contact with the metal fitting. This effectively prevents overtightening of the screw and creates a strong connection between the metal fitting and the component. The surfaces are not damaged.
