SPAX Facade Screw

The SPAX double-thread facade screw is ideal for fastening timber or composite cladding to timber frames. This SPAX screw is designed to work with the timber rather than against it, allowing the timber boards to expand naturally in wet weather and shrink in hot, dry weather. The SPAX fixing thread under the head clamps the facade to the sub-structure, locking the boards firmly in place while working with the timber during expansion and contraction, so loose boards, protruding screw heads and premature failures are a thing of the past.

Key Features
  • Raised countersunk head with milling ribs for easy countersinking
  • Fixing thread under the head locks the board in place while still allowing the timber to expand during wet weather and shrink during hot dry weather without the board moving or the screw head protruding
  • Serrated thread to cut through the timber, reducing the torque required during installation
  • 4-cut point to reduce any chance of the timber splitting
  • T-Star Plus recess for easy driving of the screw and maximum torque transfer
  • Made from 304 grade stainless steel with a decorative antique finish
  • Certified as Made in Germany
Scope of Use
