What Are Concrete Screws?
Concrete screws are a cost-friendly way to fasten objects to concrete, brick and cinder block without the use of an anchor insert or shield. These devices resemble standard screws but showcase unique threads for gripping inner layers of masonry materials across walls and flooring. As long as you have a hammer drill with a carbide-tipped bit attachment, the process for installing concrete screws takes minutes to complete.
FMW Fasteners invites customers to shop our selection of concrete screws with slotted hex and Phillips flat head configurations. Our screws are available in multiple styles, including some with ceramic coating, and will stay in place for long-term mounting applications.
Benefits of Concrete Screws
Builders with all levels of experience love concrete screws for light to medium weight projects. This form of fastening technology appeals to professional construction teams as well as homeowners because the screws are removable and reusable, and several of these options utilize protective coatings to resist corrosion. If you want to fasten hardware or fixtures to masonry, concrete screws have high pullout tolerances and require smaller pilot holes compared to alternative methods.
Screws for concrete self-tap as you drive them into base materials and surfaces. In situations where head clearance is a top priority, Phillips flat head varieties are engineered for a flush appearance. You'll have the ability to install concrete screws with the standard tools you already have on hand, which keeps your projects right on budget.
Our concrete screws are often used to secure flashing, insulation, plywood, gutters, thresholds, fixtures, beams and much more. Make sure you’re achieving maximum holding power with Titen® screws for concrete at FMW Fasteners.
Steps for Screwing Into Concrete
Start your concrete screw installation by lining up the objects you wish to fasten and drawing drill points with a pencil. Equip your hammer drill with a carbide bit that is just smaller than the diameter of the screw. Put tape on the bit of your hammer drill to mark the proper depth, then create a pilot hole for the concrete screw.
Remember to remove any dust from the area using a brush or vacuum. Guide the concrete screw through the item for mounting, and insert the device into the pre-drilled opening. Use an electric drill on a low-level setting to drive the concrete screw into the base material until you feel some resistance along the head.
How to Use Concrete Screws
FMW Fasteners recommends drilling pilot holes deeper than the length of concrete screws for maximum hold. Additionally, always double-check that your drill is set to lower speeds when fastening products into concrete, as this helps prevent the stripping of base materials. In the event you want to remove a concrete screw, always drill a new pilot hole before reusing the hardware.
