The Last Word in Self-Drilling Screws
Though the performance of self-drilling screws can be affected by the material they are used with, the cutting depth/speed and the feed rate, it is obviously essential to choose components that are of impeccable quality. Created by market-leaders Goebel, the self-drilling screws supplied by BS Fixings fit perfectly into that category.
The drill-shaped point is what gives self-drilling screws their name; the point permits the screw to be driven directly into material without any need for pilot holes, improving efficiency. Self-drilling screws, which are similar to sheet metal screws, are commonly used with soft steel material. The screws created by Goebel are categorised by size and are numbered 1 to 5; this number is based on their strength with a higher number denoting compatibility with a thicker metal.
One of the most popular types of Goebel screws is the Zinc Plated Slotted Hexagon Head Self-Drilling Screw. Crafted from high-quality steel, known for its resistance to corrosion, the screws are further enhanced in durability with a zinc plating. Each screw has a neat design and finish, making them as aesthetically-attractive as they are practical.
