Ruffnex Drill Screw - 57mm
57mm long, Carbon Steel, sheet to concrete or brickwork screw with 19mm bonded washer. - Sold in Bags of 100no - (CODE: FD1RX57W19)
Otherwise known as tapcons, these screws are widely used when installing single skin box profile steel sheets directly to brickwork, blockwork or concrete. 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 cut its own thread into masonry - No need for plugs.
The 19mm bonded galvanised washer gives a watertight fixing point through the valley and ensures the strongest possible fastening to the masonry 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).
