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!
In contrast to the partial thread, the full thread on most of our full-thread screws covers the entire – or most of – the screw length from tip to head. The more thread turn a screw has, the greater the tensile and compressive forces that can be absorbed by these screws. We make particular use of this in structural wood construction, where our full-thread screws are called upon for heavy-duty wood connections.
What this means for you: Wood connections with full-thread screws offer maximum reliability when it comes to resilience, and there's no need to use any ugly zinc-plated fittings!
The CUT point on our SPAX screws enables the ultra-fast and effective insertion of our wood screws without pre-drilling. In combination with the serrations, the arrow-shaped CUT point reduces wood splitting and tearing. The CUT point also enables extremely precise and sturdy setting of the screw tip on smooth surfaces.
What this means for you: You can skip an entire work step, since pre-drilling is no longer required for most woods. Saves both your screwdriver battery and your own energy – no more annoying slipping on smooth wood and derived timber products.
With our stainless-steel screws, the abbreviation A2 refers to the alloy of the steel. ""A"" stands for austenite, a mix of iron and carbon with the alloying elements chrome, nickel and molybdenum. The 2(1-5) describes the alloy grade, in other words, the chrome and nickel content.
Screws made of stainless steel A2 offer a high level of protection against corrosion and medium strength, However, they have low resistance to saltwater and acids. They are therefore a reliable, durable choice for outdoor applications in non-coastal areas.
What this means for you: With our stainless steel A2 screws, you are optimally equipped for corrosion-resistant fastening in virtually all non-coastal construction projects.
