Following on from the success of the C2 screw, TIMco (T.I. Midwood & Co Ltd) has launched the new C2 flooring and MDF screw.
The new C2 flooring screw has been designed for fixing wooden boards such as MDF, hardwood, softwood and chipboard. It has been specifically designed for use in flooring and offers a number of features including a partial thread to assist with pulling the two substrates together. The head is countersunk to reduce the likelihood of damaging any floor covering, and it has also been designed for easy removal if any repair work is required below the floorboards.
In addition to the features specifically targeted to flooring, the C2 flooring screw boasts other benefits of the C2 screw, including twin cut technology that ensures a rapid ‘pickup’ and a reduction of splitting. The patented twin cut technology also produces a 43% quicker screw time and half the torque of other screws – bringing time and energy savings to users.
An independent UK supplier of screws, fastener and fixings, as well as power tool accessories, TIMco points out that the launch of the new screw follows best practice guidance that now suggests screws are better than nails in securing wooden flooring. By using screws there is better control in preventing ‘squeaky floorboards’ as caused by a contraction in the floorboards or warping that sometimes occurs as a result of temperature or moisture change.
“The C2 screw is one of our most popular products so we’re very excited to launch the new C2 flooring screw. The team has worked very hard to design, develop and test the product and we’re pleased we have been able to create another quality product to join the C2 range,” says Simon Midwood, director at TIMco.
