Stronger fixing made easy 10 March 2016

Designed to combine fast and easy use with improved drive, the Performance Plus wood screw is the latest innovation from fixings specialists Samac Fixings Ltd.

UK-based Samac states that its new Performance Plus wood screw is packed with special features from head to point. For instance, specially designed ribs above the thread reduce torque and help prevent wood splitting. Other features include a specially reinforced pozi drive head, which includes 6 self countersinking ribs on the underside – helping to ensure a consistently neat, flush finish.

Samac points out that every one of its boxes comes with a free pozi bit that enables single handed operation, speeding up work on-site as well as save time and money. The thread is also partially serrated, giving the screw a combined sawing and cutting action for smooth and efficient driving, while the type 17 gash cut point improves drive and reduces splitting.

The Samac Performance Plus wood screw is available in 3.5mm – 6mm gauges and in 15mm – 200mm lengths. It can be supplied in boxes and tubs for easy and eye-catching merchandising.
