38mm long, Carbon Steel, sheet to Steel Self drilling screw with 19mm bonded washer. - Sold in Bags of 100no - (CODE: FD1HD38W19)
Widely used when installing single skin box profile steel sheets to heavy steel (angle iron / RSJ's) up to 12mm thick. Designed to be fixed through the valley (low part) of the cladding profile. The self tapping screw will drill it's own hole through up to 0.7mm thick steel sheeting and then into hot rolled purlins - No need to pre-drill.
The 19mm bonded galvanised washer gives a watertight fixing point through the valley and ensures the strongest possible fastening to the steel supports beneath. (Fixing through the crown of the sheet should be avoided where possible as this can often cause the crown to dent if over tightened, it can also allow for more movement at the fixing point).
