Self-Drilling Timber Screws for the Trades | Type 17 and more
Get the job done fast with Allfasteners
Whether you are attaching timber to timber, or metal to timber, you need access to fasteners that hold tight through all conditions and save you build time via easy installation, so you can get to the next job fast.
And there are many different types of screws in what most would call the 'wood screws' category. But even under this umbrella, there are many different screw types that accommodate all types of variables such as timber type, metal thickness or screw placement (in the middle or near the edge). For sheet metal and timber, you can't go past type 17 screws.
Go Specific, Avoid Generic
At Allfasteners, we supply only the highest quality type 17 screws direct to the trades. And with decades of experience and accumulated knowledge, the Allfasteners sales team are well-versed in the needs of tradespeople and their projects.
We also understand the need for tradies to be efficient with their costs. Often it can be tempting to use the 100s of spare standard wood or decking screws lying around in the shed or the back of the ute in order to get the job done. But with these products can come the added pre-drilling time required to even get the screw started. That's why when your job meets all the criteria - including stringent completion timeframes - Allfasteners will recommend type 17 screws over anything else.
Features of Type 17 Screws
Put the drill bits away. These screws for timber-to-timber or metal-to-timber applications are self-tapping, so no pre-drilling of holes is required. To use, simply use a power drill with a compatible driver bit to push straight through the timber or sheet metal. The sharp gimlet point will pierce the surface while the milled slot will cut its own pilot hole. These screws are also thread cutting; the screw's thread will enter its self-made pilot hole and pull itself in.
A variance of head types is also available - square drive, square drive countersunk ribbed and more - as well as materials properties such as 304 stainless steel and class 3.
