Stainless decking screws snapping?

Here's our fantastic solution, ceramic coated super hardened square drive decking screws, perfect for impact driving in hardwood and softwood decks and joists, they're the best you'll get for fastening decks without pre-drilling.

Our HiLoad deck screws come with our Screw Armour super tough coating lasting 6 times longer than galvanised and ideal for treated timber.

You will love these, so check the movie out below, if you like what you see then take a look at our full Razr Construction Screw range..same tech - more sizes.

The movie is a strength demo so we've driven them in fast and hard hence the finish is a bit rough and splintered, we know you guys will be more careful or even countersink for a much neater finish. #scrooz #fasteners #fixings #screws #bolts #brisbane #perth #australia #Electrician #Plumber #carpenter #builder #Roofing

Raptr Screws - For Fixing to Hollow Block & Brick Walls

We’ve just launched our new product raptr screws and we’re really excited about them so thought I’d let you know what they’re all about.

They are screw anchors designed to fix straight into masonry and concrete by cutting or sawing a thread as you drive them in, a bit like a self tapping screw and they don’t need any kind of plug or sleeve.

So what’s the point of them ?

Well … if you’ve ever tried to fix a piece of wood, steel frames and brackets or windows and doors to masonry you’ll soon find out that most bricks and blocks are hollow or have frogs which should be filled with mortar during the build (but often aren’t). This means most standard expanding fixings are pretty useless, leaving you with not much option other than to try and fix into the mortar joints (unwise, mortar is low strength guys) or keep trying different fixings until you can get one to bite, without splitting, in a solid part (usually the web) of the brick or block.

Raptrs are ideal for this as they simply chew into any masonry you choose to drill, whether its a face, web, through a cavity, hidden behind rendered coatings or whatever, and they don’t expand, at all, so no more cracking. Just put your piece of wood (or whatever your fixing) in place, drill your hole straight through it and into the masonry in one go and then drive the raptr in, its that simple and there just as good in solid masonry and concrete. For more info check them out here. #scrooz #fasteners #fixings #screws #bolts #brisbane #perth #australia #Electrician #Plumber #carpenter #builder #Roofing

What are Chemical or Chemset Anchors?

You’ve probably heard the term chemical anchors or resin fixings before but maybe not sure what they are, well here’s a brief guide.

Chemical or resin anchors are steel studs, bolts and anchorages which are bonded into a substrate, usually masonry and concrete, using a resin based adhesive system. They are perfectly suited for high load applications as in virtually all cases the resulting bond is stronger than the base material itself. The system is based on chemical adhesion or glueing of the bolts so no load stress is passed onto the base material which isn’t the case with expansion type anchors such as dynabolts, this bonding process makes them ideal for close to edge fixing, close spacings and group anchoring along with weak or unknown brisk and concrete materials.

Although there are many different brands, variations and delivery systems in the market, all systems operate using the same basic principle which is a 2 component base resin and activator which requires mixing, before the bolt is placed, to begin the chemical curing process, hence the term chemical anchor. #scrooz #fasteners #fixings #screws #bolts #brisbane #perth #australia #Electrician #Plumber #carpenter #builder #Roofing

How to Look After Your New Stainless Steel Wire Balustrade

Although your new Stainless Wire Balustrade is manufactured from high corrosion resistant 316 Gr Stainless steel it is not entirely maintenance free as most people believe and all grades of stainless are susceptible to some form of surface staining if not maintained.

Tea Staining

The most common discolouration a brown rustlike stain on the surface and is commonly known as ‘tea staining’ and has been identified in coastal applications both in Australia and overseas. Factors affecting tea staining have been researched extensively by ASSDA (Australian Stainless Steel Development Association) and the following information is a result of it’s findings.

What is it?

Tea staining is a cosmetic issue that does not affect the structural integrity or the lifetime of the materials, it occurs most commonly within about five kilometres of the surf and becomes progressively worse closer to the marine source. However, wind exposure, pollution levels, local sheltering and higher temperatures can create environments where tea staining might occur 20 kilometres or more from the surf. The effect is much less severe around sheltered bays and it
should be noted that these same factors also increase corrosion rates of alternative materials.

Why does it occur?

The relationships between the contributing factors are complex, but generally become increasingly critical closer to salty water. Tea staining occurs as a result of the local conditions (such as temperature, relative humidity and presence of corrosives on the surface) being too aggressive for that stainless steel grade in its installed condition.

How can I prevent it?

For most people it won’t be an issue, however if you live in a highly corrosive area then looking after you balustrade is simple, along with your normal external maintenance a light and regular wash (every month or 2) with soap or mild detergent and rinsing with clean water is best, and it’s even possible that natural rain washing may be suffi cient. If you wish you can also treat your balustrade with waxes or oil based products (lanolin, silicone aerosols) which will restrict chloride access to the stainless steel and help protect the surface and maintain a clean fresh look. #scrooz #fasteners #fixings #screws #bolts #brisbane #perth #australia #Electrician #Plumber #carpenter #builder #Roofing
