The special drive – T-STAR plus – 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 plus 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!
Of all of our head shapes, the raised countersunk head is undoubtedly the most attractive. In contrast to the countersunk head, which is designed completely flat to enable flush countersinking, the raised countersunk head has a slightly convex shape on top. Depending on screw type and surface material (stainless steel, nickel-plated, WIROX and antique), these screws not only function as a necessary fastener, but also as a decorative element. This is important in tasks such as furniture construction or fastening skirting boards.What this means for you: No need to countersink screw heads or waste time camouflaging screw holes in visible areas of furniture and skirting.
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 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.
