Timber as a material is a common choice for outdoor structures due to its natural beauty, strength and availability. Paramount to any outdoor timber structure is the fastener, which is an integral part of the structure’s overall strength and longevity.
The Timber Construction Screw has been designed with a number of unique features which offer optimum performance when fastening timber to timber. These features combine together to ensure professional results in less time for contractors, tradies and DIYers.
The bold and aggressive thread cuts through fibrous timber materials to offer fast and trouble-free installation. The large washer head provides superior clamping force and drawing strength assisting in a strong and secure connection. The 16 gauge hardened carbon steel construction offers enhanced strength and peace of mind.
Ideal for pergolas, sleepers, gates and fencing, the Timber Construction Screw is available in two finishes which offer superior corrosion protection: Climacoat® 3 which resists the chemicals present in treated pine timbers; and Zinc Alloy 3 which is a galvanised coating suited for external/outdoor applications.
The Buildex Timber Construction Screw is available in 75, 100 & 125mm lengths to suit a variety of applications and multiple packaging formats to suit your project requirements. It’s available at Bunnings and all leading hardware stores.
Note: For extremely hard timbers and close to edge applications, some pre-drilling may be required.
