Also known as a double cross or Pozidriv, the cross recess Z is a further development of the cross drive by the Phillips Screw Company. The difference is that the four flanks of the screwdriver blade do not taper towards the tip. This increases the lateral hold for the screwdriver bit and reduces the so-called cam-out effect. This occurs through the typical tapering on conventional cross drives, since the torque exerted by the cordless screwdriver pushes the bit upwards and out. What this means for you: No more worrying about screwdriver bits slipping out, easier work with much less exertion. This saves a huge amount of time.

Parameters such as head pull-through resistance or contact pressure are not only important in structural wood construction, but are also a crucial demand in furniture construction. Our universal screw with flange head offers both in order to ensure the sturdy fastening of stiffening hardboard back walls on cabinet bodies. The flange head is flat and is equipped with our cross recess Z drive. The washer-like shape does not protract and enlarges the contact surface on the fibreboard. The head is not as easy to pull through the back wall and, in contrast to nails, can be easily removed if the cabinet needs to be dismantled. What this means for you: No more torn back walls on your cabinets, simple assembly and dismantling when moving, easier installation than with conventional nails.

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 term 4CUT is used to describe the fact that the point of our screws is not rounded, but rather shaped like an arrow. These four edges displace the wood fibres upon insertion and thus create space for the core diameter of the screw. The otherwise inevitable expansion at the core of the wood is effectively reduced, minimising wood splitting around the edges. The required cordless screwdriver torque is also reduced, since the screw core no longer needs to "squeeze" into the wood. What this means for you: Practically no pre-drilling required any longer – even in the edge areas of your workpiece that are normally prone to splitting! The 4CUT means you can skip an entire work step.

Effective corrosion protection is a must for screws used for outdoor structures not exposed to the elements. For this, SPAX has developed the WIROX coating, which far outdoes conventional galvanisation in terms of both protection and durability. Our WIROX-coated screws are significantly more resistant to mechanical stress than their counterparts with chromate conversion coating. No chromium(VI) is used for WIROX, which means that even after years in an area not directly exposed to the elements, the screws are not only just as resilient, but are entirely environmentally friendly, too. Our WIROX screws are the ideal choice for all open structures without direct exposure to the elements, such as carports and pergolas. For areas with extreme weather exposure, such as decking, we continue to recommend our stainless-steel screws.What this means for you: When you use our corrosion-protected screws outdoors, you can be safe in the knowledge that your structure is well fastened – in outdoor areas not directly exposed to the elements, WIROX keeps our screws statically rigid and reliably protected over many years. So there's no need for visual inspections every year!

This increases the lateral hold for the screwdriver bit and reduces the cam-out effect. Typical tapering on conventional cross recess drives causes this to happen, since the cordless screwdriver torque pushes the screwdriver bit upwards.

Qualities such as pull-through resistance and contact pressure are also in high demand in furniture construction. Our universal screw with flange head offers both in order to ensure the sturdy fastening of hardboard back walls on cabinet bodies. The flat shape does not protract and enlarges the contact surface on the fibreboard. The head ensures a sturdy hold and can be removed if the cabinet is dismantled and even used again.

Unlike the partial thread, the full thread spans the entire screw length. The more thread turn a screw has, the greater the tensile and compressive forces that can be transferred by these screws to the wood. Our full-thread screws are predominantly used for heavy-duty wood connections.

The term 4CUT stands for the arrow-shaped design of the screw tip. These edges displace the wood fibres upon insertion and create space for the core diameter of the screw. The expansion at the core of the wood is reduced, preventing wood splitting around the edges. The required cordless screwdriver torque is also reduced, since the screw core no longer needs to "squeeze" into the wood.

With WIROX, SPAX has developed a coating that is far superior to galvanisation when it comes to corrosion protection. No chromium(VI) is used for WIROX, which means that even after years in an area not directly exposed to the elements, the screws are not only just as resilient, but are entirely environmentally friendly, too.
