If you need floorboard screws or trailer floor screws, these Torx® floorboard machine screws from FMW fasteners are the perfect choice. The official name of these screws is Hexalobular internal socket drive screws. Camcar/Textron invented Torks screws and trademarked the name Torx® for their range of Torx® drive products.
If you need 6-Lobe screws or Star Drive screws, you can find what you’re looking for here.
The Benefits of Torx® Screws for Your Floorboard Construction Jobs
There are many reasons why Torx® screws are becoming the screws of choice for construction projects. These Torx® floorboard machine screws feature a 6-point, star-shaped recessed drive. While you need a special bit to turn these screws, they are extremely useful in floorboard projects, as they have a much higher torque capacity without causing slippage, camming and stripping. These qualities are much less likely than when tightening or loosening standard screws — this preserves the quality and condition of both the fastener and the fastener tool for longer, better performance.
In metric system countries throughout Europe and Asia, Torx® screws are becoming the standard, so those who convert to a Torx® drive system will be following a worldwide trend. The design of the Torx® drive allows for high-torque transfer and greater tool engagement, leading to much longer tool life and a reduction in fatigue and muscular stress during manual assembly.
Some experts report that Torx® screws are five times better than the equivalent hex socket drive screw for construction projects. Due to its superior quality and easy installation, Torx screws are becoming more popular fastening solutions for a wide variety of products, including electrics and mobile phones to residential construction to bicycle manufacturing.

Reasons to Use Torx Floorboard Screws for Your Next Flooring Installation Project
For many inexperienced do-it-yourselfers, every type of fastener product looks the same — as long as the materials you're securing stay together the fastener was effective, right? While many screws and other fasteners look similar, it's best to understand how certain products can improve the final quality of your project. When researching the best installation methods for floorboards, you may find resources stating regular nails or other types of screws are the best solutions to reduce project completion times. However, for the best long-term results, invest the time and money into using floorboard screws.
Over time or with moisture exposure, floorboards can lose their ability to securely hold fasteners in place. When this occurs, additional movement between sub flooring, joists and floor coverings can happen, leading to uncomfortable squeaking and other issues. By choosing a quality floorboard screw, you can have a tighter and more snug fit, reducing the chances of the fasteners loosening over time and causing unnecessary movement and squeaks. By beginning your floorboard installation on the right foot and with the most effective, dependable tools like our selection of Torx floorboard screws, you can have higher quality results, longer lasting solutions and better peace of mind.
