Extending the successful Vortex power screw portfolio, the new high-performance Vortex exterior screw is an excellent choice for external applications.
Designed to be used in softwood and hardwood the multi-purpose screw is ideal for a range of external applications, including decking, roofing, and fencing. They include a Magsho Silver Organic coating, which can withstand a 1000-hour salt spray test, which helps reduce corrosion, as well as being ACQ (Alkaline copper quarternary) timber resistant.
The recessed double countersunk head reduces the chance of the head shearing, ensuring product reliability, and has sharp milling ribs which enable self-countersinking, helping reduce time and increase efficiency. The sharp, wide and deep thread, featuring ‘Saw Fix’ serrated thread technology, enables the screw to power through timber quickly and easily. Most of the Vortex exterior power screw sizes also include an oblique-angle sharp gash point, improving initial bite into the timber.
The Vortex exterior screw is available in diameters 4mm and 5mm, and lengths 30-100mm and most sizes are fully CE compliant to BS EN 14592:2008+A1:2012.
The screws come packaged in an attractive retail-ready tub which is robust, water-resistant, drop-proof, and ideally sized. Each tub also comes complete with a 50mm impact driver bit in a bag.
