StrongDrive TIMBER Screws

The Strong-Drive SDWS Timber screw is designed to provide an easy-to-install, high-strength alternative to through-bolting and traditional lag screws. The Strong-Drive SDWH Timber-Hex SS screw provides a structural wood-to-wood connection, including for ledgers. As all Type 316 stainless steel fasteners, the Strong-Drive SDWH Timber-Hex SS screw offers maximum corrosion protection.


Features

SDWS and SDWH Timber Screws come in 3" to 10" lengths.

  • Bold thread design provides superior holding power
  • Patented 4CUT tip ensures fast starts, reduces installation torque and eliminates the need for pre-drilling in most applications
  • Knurled shank section above the threads makes driving easier
  • Under-head nibs offer greater installer control when seating the head
  • Large head provides maximum bearing area
  • Double-barrier coating provides corrosion resistance equivalent to hot-dip galvanization, making it suitable for many exterior and preservative-treated wood applications
  • Available in lengths up to 10" for maximum versatility
  • Bit included in package

Installation

  • Strong-Drive SDWS Timber screws install best with a lowspeed 1/2" drill and a T-40 6-lobe bit. The matched bit included with the screws is recommended for best results.
  • Strong-Drive SDWH Timber-Hex SS screws install best with a low-speed 1/2" drill and a 5/16" hex driver bit. The matched bit included with the screws is recommended for best results.
  • Pre-drilling is typically not required. Where pre-drilling is necessary, use a 5/32" drill bit for Strong-Drive SDWS Timber screws and 0.188" Strong-Drive SDWH Timber-Hex SS screws. Use a 7/32" drill bit for 0.276" Strong-Drive SDWH Timber-Hex SS screws.
  • Screw heads that are countersunk flush to the wood surface are acceptable if the screw has not spun out.
