  • DRYWALL SCREWS

    Drywall screws fasten sheets of drywall (also called sheetrock or plasterboard) to the wall or ceiling support studs. Drywall screws with coarse threads are used to to attach to wood framing. Screws with fine threading are used for metal studs. Also, self-drilling versions are available for attaching to thicker metal support.
    Most drywall screws have a tapered bugle head to penetrate the drywall without damaging the outer layer of paper. Trim head screws are used to attach trim pieces over the drywall, and have a very small head that disappears into the surface for easy finishing. K-lath screws have a large wafer head to easily attach wire mesh, or lath, to the frame studs to support plaster. Their low profile heads are easily covered over by the finished surface of tile, stone, brick, stucco, etc.

  • 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.
    Please answer the following questions to find the exact Teks screw that you need.

  • Lag Screw, Hex Head

    Manufactured to be extremely sturdy, lag screws are some of the toughest fasteners. They are used to attach objects to wood and anchor masonry. Common applications include retaining walls, deck frames, and wooden beam outdoor play equipment. For masonry application, use the screw in conjunction with a lag shield. Lag screws have coarse threads designed for pre-drilled holes to prevent splitting or snapping, and require minimal clearance above the fastener. The hexagonal drive allows for simple installation and controlled traction with a socket or wrench.

    For corrosion resistance, lag screws are available as Zinc plated, Hot Dipped Galvanized (HDG), and Stainless Steel.

  • Hex Tap Bolts

    The major distinguishing feature of hex tap bolts is that they are always fully threaded from under the head to the tip, no matter the size. Other features, such as chamfered point or washer bearing surface under the head, may be present, or may not. Tap bolts are meant to be used nuts to secure two objects together, but they also will fully seat into a tapped hole to secure one material to a base material.
    They are available in Grade 2, Grade 5, and in Stainless Steel.

  • Hex Cap Screws, Grades 2, 5, & 8

    A hex cap screw is a six-sided bolt with a trimmed hex head and a washer face on the bearing surface. Informally, it is also called a Finished Hex Bolt. Hex cap screws have tighter tolerances than standard bolts of the same size, and so are often used where precise tolerances are needed. The standard hex screw specifications include ASTM A449 and SAE J429 Grade-2, Grade-5, and Grade-8.
