Tek Self-Drilling Screws

Tek Self-Drilling Screws

Teks screws provide secure fastening to metal with strong holding power, without the need to pre-drill. High performance cutting tips are designed to quickly penetrate the metal surface for easy installation. Self-tapping threads ensure strong holding power, in either sheet metal or steel beams. There are even Teks screws for wood-to-metal applicaitons.
Standard grade Teks screws are ideal for attaching HVAC, electrical work, metal framing, and general light to medium applications. The TRAXX grades are designed for heavier applications, and are available in Stainless Steel and Hardened Steel.
There are also several types that include neoprene washers, to seal the drill site against rain or other water.
