Screws and Fixings

Our Range Of Screws and Fixings

In the building and maintenance industry screws and fixings are everyday items. The pozidriv countersunk screws are the most popular. They're used by almost everyone at work and in the home. Like the wood screw, some fixings get used by everyone. And some are for specialist installations. Each trade has its own range of nuts, bolts, washers, screws and fixings that it always uses.

Some screws are brass and some are steel. The steel screws will have a black, zinc, galvanised or chrome plated finish. They're made in various shapes and each one has a different head. The heads can be a countersunk or pan head. And there are others including raised head and round head. The pozidriv heads are anti-slip and a favorite with most people. They are useful when working on finished surfaces or expensive equipment. (continued below)

We have listed the screws and fixings we stock with a short description of their uses.

Pozidriv Wood Screws

A very common fixing that's used with all types of wood. They're countersunk screws made from hardened steel. They have a twin thread and a sharp point for fast starting. This means you do not need to make pilot holes when used with most building materials.

Black Japan Round Head Screws

This type of fastening is often used by electricians to fix conduit boxes and trunking. The Black Japan round head has no sharp edges. Round head screws cannot slice through cables as they're pulled in during wiring.

Brass Round Head Screws

The brass round head screws are generally used outside because they do not rust. The larger variety are often used outdoors to fix bulkhead lights. They can also fix IP rated switches and sockets.
