At Narangba Timbers, we have screws that are just right for every one of your timber projects. There are pros and cons to using screws: they have better pull-out strength compared to nails, and are inserted with lesser impact, but they take more time to install.
Because they are threaded, screws fix fast to the timber to creates a secure joint. To prevent splitting of the timber or bending of the screw, pre-drilling is sometimes done before the screw is fixed.
Our screw stock includes:
- Batten Screws (in sizes 50, 75, 100, 125, 150 and 200mm) – These heavy-duty screws are used for fencing, decking, sleepers, and general construction. Their long and sharp point helps cut the path for the thread and capture timber chips.
- Coach Screws – Heavy-duty bolt-sized screws that are suitable for steel to timber or timber to timber applications where nuts and bolts cannot be used – and also for improved appearance.
- Decking Screws – Primarily used for (not surprisingly!) decking, these screws have a countersunk head which allows for a flush finish – always important for decking.
- Screen Screws – These are high-strength screws used for timber screens.
If you are unsure of which type of screw you need for your particular project, just ask one of the friendly Narangba Timbers team – we’re here to help.
