Concrete Screws: A Great Alternative to Anchors
September 10, 2020
Fastener SuperStore carries Concrete Screws in Hex Washer Head and Countersunk/Flat Head options.
For light and medium duty applications into masonry, bricks & concrete, Concrete Screws are a great alternative to anchors.
Fastener SuperStore carries Concrete Screws with a hex head and a slotted drive, or with a flat head and a phillips drive. Both types come in Blue Perma Seal, a three layer finish combining a metallic zinc coating, followed by a chemical conversion film, and finally a baked ceramic outside coating.
Concrete screws require pre-drilling a pilot hole with a hammer drill fitted with the appropriately sized masonry bit. A double lead thread with alternating high and low threads, along with a diamond shaped nail-type point allow the screw to cut its own threads into these hard materials.
We carry Concrete Screws in the common diameters of 3/16" and 1/4", with lengths from 1 1/4" up to 4". Pilot holes should be the depth of the required embedment (length of the screw) plus 1/2".
All of our Concrete Screws come in cartons of 100, but if you're looking for a larger quantity give us a call or send us an email and we'll get back to you with a quote.
