Through its focus on terrace screws for various applications, and its commitment to launching innovations into the market, SWG Schraubenwerk Gaisbach GmbH – Business Unit Production has been able to introduce a new range of terrace screws.
For applications with very hard wooden boards, SWG’s terrace screw features a reinforced shank and an enhanced drill tip, making it the first choice for numerous customers. The drill tip ensures a precise positioning of the screw, no splitting effect and short edge distances. The grooved shank collects existing wood fibres and prevents movement of the boards and any disturbing ‘cracking sounds’. Thanks to a small countersunk head with milling pockets, a final and visually appealing finish is provided. Any remaining chips are repeatedly collected and captured.
One further development of the described stainless steel terrace screw is the new ‘vintage look’. In a special heating process the screw gets a dark brown colour, which changes the surface of the screw meaning a galvanisation process is not necessary. The result is a durable colour, which cannot be damaged by the application and transport.
The ‘vintage look’ terrace screw matches perfect with dark wooden boards, for example terraces made of tropical wood. Besides the terrace decking, there are also other types of stainless steel screws with the ‘vintage look’ available, which can be used for fixing façades and many other applications.
