Vortex™ screws ‘going down a storm’ 04 October 2016

The Vortex™ screw from Hexstone Group is recognised in the industry for its premium quality and tailored product features, giving customers the versatility and assurance when using the solution in projects.

Martin Rundle, Hexstone’s marketing manager, comments: “Vortex™ is a high-quality, multipurpose screw, which has been consistently popular with our customers since its launch approximately two years ago. In an exciting move, we are offering a prize worth GB£500 for the winner of our ‘Word Search’ competition, which appears in the Vortex advert on Page 115 of September's Fastener + Fixing Magazine. It’s fun, free to participate, and should only take a few minutes to complete. All that needs to be done is to find and highlight the words that are associated with the Vortex screw, fill in the form, and send back to us. You know what they say: ‘You have to be in it, to win it!’ All the details are given in the advert.” 
The recessed double countersunk head on the Vortex product range reduces the likelihood of shearing the head of the screw, whilst assisting the completion of countersinking – making it a more reliable product for users. The sharp, wide and deep thread on the products feature ‘Saw Fix’ serrated thread technology, enabling the product to quickly and easily power through surfaces. It can be used on a range of materials including hardwood, decking, MDF, plastic and sheet metal.
Available in diameters from 3.5mm to 6mm, and lengths ranging from 12mm to 200mm, all Vortex products have an oblique angle sharp gash point – making initial penetration into materials easier. A number of sizes are also fully threaded. The high-quality zinc and yellow waxed finish on the screws prevents corrosion, increasing the lifetime of the product, and Vortex screws are fully CE compliant to EN 14592:2008 and A1:2012.
Vortex screws are available in a variety of packaging options including single size boxes, assortment boxes, clam packs, tubs, and assortment cases. Free sample bags for trial purposes are also available – for further details, just contact one of Hexstone’s sales offices.
Martin continues: “Vortex screws, along with all products from Hexstone businesses, can be ordered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Next day delivery is available and products can be ordered through the network of sales offices or online.”
