Samac adds performance

performanceplus torx head 2

Fixings specialist Samac has added a whole new range of Performance Plus TORX head screws to its Performance Range.

The Performance Plus TORX screws fasten with six points of contact to maximise transmission of torque when driving the screw. Easy to align, more precise, and with less cam-out, they have been designed to combine fast and easy use with improved drive.

The new Torx head version has been designed with a milling thread positioned above the standard course thread to help prevent wood splitting while six self-countersinking ribs on the underside of the head ensures a consistently neat, flush finish. The thread is partially serrated, giving the screw a combined sawing and cutting action for smooth and efficient driving, while the type 17 cut point improves drive and reduces splitting without the need for pre-drilling

The high contact Torx head design means that less pressure is required to keep the screwdriver tip in the head recess, drastically reducing the chances of cam out. Because the transmission of the driving force is radial rather than axial, less driving force is needed, making them easier to drive by hand or giving more fixings per battery charge.

The new Performance Plus TORX head screws will be available in a wide variety of sizes up to 300mm in 8mm gauge to tackle even the most demanding jobs like structural timber projects, roofing and timber frame building. Every box comes with a free Torx bit.
