Quik Drive and Self-Drilling Screws Speed Up NZ Post’s New Mezzanine Floor Installation

This is New Zealand Post’s new facility for automated parcel sorting near Christchurch Airport. Check out the work being carried out by the Hanham & Philp Contractors, and how they installed this mezzanine floor using the Quik Drive tool with CBSDGL158SA 10g x 42mm collated screws for ply fixing to steel frame.

The self-drilling CBSDG screw is ideal for fixing cement sheeting, underlay or timber-to-steel joists. The design requires no pre-drilling, making them easier and faster to install than standard winged self-drilling screws. The drill point with wings drives easily through 1.2mm–2.4mm steel without pre-drilling.

Watch the video to see how easy it is for the builder to install the flooring screws on this mezzanine floor. The Quik Drive system delivers a consistent fixing depth every time you engage a screw, no over or under driven fixings, no bending over or kneeling to fix screws, so no more aching backs or sore knees for the team at Hanham & Philp Contractors. They love being able to work upright and finish off the new floor more quickly and easily.
