brand Stainless Steel deck screws offer the highest corrosion resistance,
better holding power, and no cam-outs or stripping when
installing. Unlike square drive fasteners, the star or
Torx drive recess holds the insert bit more securely when
Pressure-treated lumber and decking, Cedar, Redwood, composite
decking and a variety of other wood-to-wood applications.
square drive screws do not compare in performance to the star
recess of DeckTite screws. The square drive recess tapers into
the screw head which causes cam-out or stripping when driving
into dense materials. The star drive (Torx) recess goes straight
into the screw head at 90 degrees preventing any slipping or
cam-out when driving into dense materials.
screws feature a self-tapping type 17 point for effortless
entry into most materials. Wide coarse threads are
designed to bite into wood for maximum holding power.
DeckTite screws are also available in long lengths such as 3
inch, 3-1/2 inch, and 4 inch lengths.
Stainless Steel offers the highest corrosion resistance
available for construction fasteners. It is usually
regarded as the standard "marine grade stainless
Stainless Steel is similar to 304, but with a higher Nickel
and Chromium content. It also offers more corrosion resistance
than Type 304.
Stainless Steel is the standard "18-8" and is the most
versatile and widely used stainless steel.
Stainless Steel is not recommended for construction
fasteners where corrosion resistance is required. This alloy
contains a higher Carbon Steel content and is magnetic.
This grade is commonly used for ball bearings, lashing wire, and
Steel alloys such as 410, 416, and 440 should never be
used for exterior fastening applications when corrosion
resistance is required.
