For bathroom interior design projects, SPAX screws are only needed for certain jobs, such as fastening shelves or a DIY cabinet. SPAX connectors ensure that side or back walls, sideboards or fittings have a sturdy hold. Although there is no significant static stress, there are still some challenges when it comes to bathroom projects. Given the high humidity level inside, some types of wood may swell. Therefore, when planning your project, go for solid or glued wood types.
What do I need to consider?
Generally speaking, because bathrooms are considered as moisture-prone areas due to their high humidity, you should only use stainless-steel screws. Otherwise, screws in the vicinity of the shower and wash basin may start to rust. Don't forget that bathroom projects also usually involve coated board materials. This means you have to take special care not to split the panel when fastening screws along edges. Given that such boards often have smooth surfaces, it is also important to ensure that the screw tip does not slip upon insertion. Head shapes with milling pockets are therefore ideal, as they remove the need to pre-drill the drill hole. The screw head must not pierce through the thin hardboard used on cabinet rear walls. You should also make sure that screw heads do not protrude so far into the body that they impede the fitting of hinges or drawer runners. Bathrooms also have higher requirements concerning corrosion resistance, which means that as well as choosing your materials carefully, it might also be wise to cover visible screw heads with a plastic decorative cap.
What solutions does SPAX offer?
SPAX offers the perfect screw for all types of wood. If you are working with coated MDF and HDF materials, SPAX-M is what you are looking for. If your ideas require solid wood boards, it is best to go for universal screws in stainless steel. To fasten metal fittings with a through-hole, SPAX with pan head are the ideal choice – and are also available in stainless steel. To fasten hardboard back walls on bathroom cabinets, our SPAX flat flange head screws with cross recess or T-STAR plus are the perfect choice and offer increased tightening torques without damaging or deforming the material. And because all of the above screws feature a CUT or 4CUT point, pre-drilling and split boards are things of the past. For bathroom projects that are guaranteed to go swimmingly.
