Wood screws with nibs under the head

Head Types

Wood screws typically feature either a flat countersunk head or a round head. Our range features the flat countersunk option, as this is the most popular amongst woodworkers, allowing for a neat, smooth finish. Nibs under the head help the screw head to seat flush with the surface. This head type also works very well when screws are counterbored and plugged.

Torx drive stainless steel deck screws

Drive Systems

Common drive systems for wood screws include slotted, Phillips, Torx (or star) and square (or Robinson) drives. Our research has shown that the Torx drive option is an excellent option with several benefits. This precision drive can handle high torque, preventing stripping and camming. This prolongs driver life and makes it possible to remove screws if needed.

Medium thread pattern reduces drive torque

Thread Patterns

Our screws have a medium thread pattern which reduces drive torque especially in hardwoods. This is important, as stainless steel screws are softer than carbon steel screws.

Stainless steel decking screws with type 17 point

Point Types

We have selected the Type 17 point which helps the screw thread itself into the timber. Note that our screws are not self-drilling and require pilot holes to be drilled for best results.

Installation Tips and Techniques

Here are some tips and techniques to help you achieve successful wood screw installations:

  • Pre-Drilling

    For hardwoods or when working near the edges of the wood, pre-drilling pilot holes can prevent splitting and ensure precise screw placement.

  • Countersinking

    To achieve a flush finish, consider using a countersink bit to create a recess for the screw head.

  • Torque Control

    Use a drill with adjustable torque settings to avoid overtightening and damaging the wood or stripping the screw.

  • Spacing and Alignment

    Plan the spacing and alignment of your screws carefully to ensure even distribution and proper structural integrity.

Maintenance and Care of Wood Screws

Stainless steel wood screws do not require any specific maintenance.

All structures should be regularly inspected to ensure structural integrity and safe function.
