In kitchens, SPAX screws are mostly used when shelving or a DIY cabinet needs to be installed. Such a task involves clamping together elements like side walls, worktops, back walls, sideboards or kitchen cabinet fittings and making sure they remain firm. Screws do not therefore tend to be exposed to high static loads. And because kitchens are rarely prone to any major humidity, screw requirements for corrosion protection are also low.
What do I need to know?
Even if there are not too many requirements for such a project, it is important to consider a few points when choosing which screws to use. Like all pieces of furniture, kitchen elements are usually made of board materials like MDF, chipboard or LVL. This means you have to take special care not to split the panel when fastening screws along edges. Given that such boards often have coated surfaces, it is also important to ensure that the screw tip does not slip upon insertion. The screw head must not pierce through the thin hardboard used on cabinet rear walls. Finally, 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. Head shapes with milling pockets below also remove the need to pre-drill the drill hole.
