HI.FORCE Washer Head Screw
Description

Ideal for playground equipment, pergolas, porches, bridges, balconies, and other outdoor construction, the SPAX washer head screw is a modern, innovative screw for timber connections, designed as an easy, economical replacement for coach screws and bugle batten screws.

It is a partial thread screw with a large head for clamping timber components tightly together. The large head also provides high resistance to the timber pulling over the head.

Key Features
  • Quick and easy installation compared with traditional wood screws, saving time and money
  • Higher load capacities due to coarse thread design and high strength steel
  • Large head diameter to increase head pull-through load
  • Four-cut point and serrated thread for reduced chance of splitting the timber and reduced screwing-in torque
  • Unique T-STAR plus recess for better torque transfer and reduced chance of stripping the head
  • DELTA-SEAL coating for superior corrosion protection and resistance to timber treatments
  • Also available in 304 grade stainless steel
Scope of Use
  • Pergolas and carports
  • Retaining walls
  • Boardwalks
  • Bridges
  • Top and bottom plate connections
