Dimensions
Quantity
  • Even force distribution through 4-way expansion
  • Plug rim protects the surface of the material and prevents slipping into the drill hole
  • Rotary protection prevents the plug from turning in the material during screw insertion
  • Expansion-free plug neck prevents plaster or tile chipping
  • Screw length = attachment thickness E + min. insertion depth D
  • The plug geometry has been optimally adapted to the SPAX screw to guarantee the user safe working and flawless installation results
  • Suitable for pre-positioned installation
  • Made of high-quality nylon
  • Can be used with all standard chipboard and wood screws
  • Can be used outdoors in combination with stainless-steel screws

This special drive is a so-called hexalobular internal. Compared to less precise-fitting drive types like Phillips or cross recess, the contact surface is many times larger with our T-STAR plus, and the T-STAR bits are always positioned optimally in the screw head. The maximum, precise force transmission from the screwdriver to the screw that results from the use of T-STAR plus thus enables simple and ultra-fast work with much more efficiency than with other drives. What this means for you: No more annoying bit slips from the screw head – you can take care of serial fastening in no time at all!

Installing window and door frames with plastic and aluminium profiles calls for a head shape that can withstand high pulling forces whilst not being too thick. Our flat countersunk head ticks both boxes. It finds its place on our SPAX-RA full-thread screw, which is used for the plug-free fastening of window and door frames. As you might expect, the T-STAR plus drive takes care of force application. What this means for you: No more obstructive screw heads inside window and door frames.

In principle, all of our screws can be organised into two groups: screws with partial thread and screws with full thread. Screws with partial thread are ideal for fastening components like engineered wood boards, panels, floorboards and even squared timbers on load-bearing components like stud framing or posts (in this case, with our HI.FORCE). While the thread makes its way through the load-bearing component, the thread-free shank of the partial thread screw should pull all the way through the top attachment. When the screw is inserted further, the screw head pulls the upper component onto the lower one. By inserting the screw, maximum contact pressure is therefore created between the two components. Of course, this effect is ideal when the thread-free shank has at least the same thickness as the attachment What this means for you: Partial thread screws offer the ultimate clamping force in wood construction.

The typical SPAX T-STAR plus drive is a so-called hexalobular internal. This shape increases the contact surface of our T-STAR plus and ensures optimal positioning for the T-STAR plus bits in the screw head. By enabling maximum force transmission from the screwdriver to the screw, T-STAR plus guarantees simple and ultra-fast work with much more efficiency than with other drives.

The flat countersunk head has a polygonal underside ("pockets") that mills its way into the wood and can therefore be countersunk without having to pre-drill the screw hole. The flat countersunk head sits flush with the surface.

The screws with partial thread are ideal for fastening thin components like engineered wood boards, panels and floorboards to thicker components like squared timbers or beams. The short thread penetrates the thick component, whilst the thread-free shank remains in the attachment. This creates maximum contact pressure between the two. The thread-free part should be at least the same thickness as the attachment.
