Screw manufacturer T I Midwood & Co Limited (TIMco) has extended its current range of In-Dex exterior timber screws, designed for multiple wood applications, to provide an efficient solution.
TIMco’s range of Hex Head In-Dex Timber screws has now been extended to include a Wafer Head 8 mm gauge with longer lengths up to 400mm for heavy duty use.
Developed for heavier duty fixing needs, the new 8 mm gauge Wafer head In-Dex screws ensure a high pull out resistance and easy insertion. The new additions are available in Organic Green to offer users a more natural finish to their external constructions as well as A2 Stainless Steel.
The Organic Green offers the additional advantage of being tested for 1,000 hours to salt spray resistance, making them suitable for most outdoor applications. The 8mm gauge Wafer head In-Dex screws have serrations on the first four threads of the screw to ensure easier insertion. It also features a helix at the top of the thread which relieves torque on insertion and a T30/T40 drive which stops camming out and helps to reduce driver wear.
Other features of the In-Dex screws include a 25° sharp point for easier penetration into all wood types, 40° deep single thread to provide secure fixings and high pull-out resistance and a type 17 slash to reduce torque and the likelihood of the timber splitting when the screw is inserted close to the edge.
