Simpson Strong-Tie Introduces New Quick-Start, High-Strength Wood Fasteners to Take Home Improvement Projects to the Next Level
Pleasanton, Calif. —Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, introduced the Wafer-Head Construction and Finish Trim screws to provide contractors, homeowners and DIYers with versatile fastening solutions that are ideal for a full range of home improvement projects from cabinetry to framing to installing trim and molding and more.
Designed to help homeowners build every project faster, easier, and stronger than ever, both the Wafer-Head Construction and Finish Trim screws feature a patented SawTooth® point to eliminate the need for time-consuming predrilling and a 6-lobe recessed head to make driving secure, fast, and easy.
Available in #8 x 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, 2″, 2 1/2″, and 3″ lengths, the Wafer-Head Construction screw provides a strong, reliable connection with little effort. Featuring a wafer head for increased pull-through resistance that’s been tested for withdrawal and pull-through loads, the Wafer-Head Construction screw drives easily and holds materials in place for the long term, whether it’s for carpentry, home improvement projects, or other wood-to-wood (or engineered wood) applications.
For projects that demand a faster fastener with a finer finish, the Finish Trim screw provides homeowners with a high-performance screw that features under-head threads for cleaner countersinking and a compact, low-profile cylinder head for a clean, concealed appearance. Available in a variety of sizes from 1 1/4″ to 5″, the Finish Trim screw is ideal for carpentry, trim, fascia, window jambs, and other applications requiring a strong hold and clean finish with minimal fastener head exposure.
Particularly when it comes to trim, the Finish Trim screw allows for secure installations on long, multiple-board runs with smooth, clean fastener finishes. That means no more marred surfaces resulting from errant hammer blows, and no more damaged trim boards from incorrect depth-adjustment settings on power nailers and staplers.
“The introduction of the new Wafer-Head Construction and Finish Trim screws provides professionals and DIYers with complete versatility to quickly and easily tackle the widest range of home improvement projects,” says Simpson Strong-Tie product manager Andrew Brigham. “From interior to exterior, structural to finish, completing projects faster, more easily, and more securely than ever is finally in reach, all with these versatile screws.”
The Wafer-Head Construction screw and Finish Trim screw are available in exterior-grade Quik Guard® coatings to help resist outdoor elements. This summer, the Finish Trim screw will also be available in Type 316 stainless steel in select lengths for use in wet, salty, or other severely corrosive environments.
