ZAP Self-Drilling Timber Construction Screw

Metal dowel-type fasteners, bearing-type connectors, coach screws and bolting are the most common form of connector in timber construction.

Why is the ZAP Self-Drilling Structural Timber Screw different?

Ø It is a high-strength wood screw available in different lengths and gauge offering an alternative to timber connections via bolting and/or traditional coach screws.

Ø It delivers faster starts and requires less torque to drive.

Ø The M6 and M8 screws has a 14 and 22mm pan-head respectively with a serrated tread point eliminating any pre-drilling.

Ø Drives easily with a T-30 or T-40 driver bit.

Ø The Structural Timber Screw is typically used for connections in load bearing
timber structures between members of solid timber, glued laminated timber,
cross laminated timber and laminated veneer lumber, similar glued members,
wood-based panels or steel. The high-strength wood screw is also used as
tensile or compressive reinforcement perpendicular to the woodgrain.

Ø Corrosion treatment of the screw is equivalent to hot-dip galvanisation.  However, should you require better corrosion protection we can have the panheads painted in any colour..
