The latest development to their decking screw range is the Buildex® XL Head Decking Screw, which has been specifically designed for fastening wider decking boards.
Wider decking boards are more prone to movement and cupping, increasing the pressures placed on the fastener securing the board to the joist. These increased forces have the potential to result in the failure of smaller gauge screws shortly after installation.
To combat this issue, Buildex has designed a new decking screw with an XL Head and 12 gauge body to resist these forces, offering a stronger and more secure deck structure. This versatile screw is manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel, providing corrosion protection and enhanced aesthetics.
The XL Head and 12 gauge body offers a visible and high strength fixing for fastening decking boards to timber joists. Available in 50mm and 65mm lengths, with pack formats of 50 and 250, to fulfil most project requirements.
