Hex head screws

Hex head screws have been available for many years, and are commonly used for roofing, fixing timber together and other general purpose application.  Hex head screws are made with either a type 17 point (for timber), a self drilling point (for metal) or a series 500 screw (for thicker metals).

Hex head metal roofing screws are the most commonly used due to their versatility, as they can screw through roofing iron into a timber batten.  Hex head screws come in a variety of lengths up to 150mm and also various gauges. It is important to remember the head size can change with the different gauges of screws..

Understanding hex head roofing screws

While slotted and Phillips screws are the more common variations; these hex-shaped versions come with a lot of benefits which set them aside from the pack.

First of all, you can apply more pressure with hex head screws, and the chances of the driver bit slipping off the screw are minimal when compared to Phillips drive.

Hex screws are also available with a neoprene washer. This is particularly important for roof screws as it stops any water seeping into the hole in the iron.

But these screws are not only ideal for applications where you want them locked into place. Phillips and slot options can become damaged, making it extremely difficult to remove them.

You are less likely to have those issues with hex head metal roofing screws because they are less prone to damage and are easier to remove. The extra torque able to be generated from using hex screws also makes removing them a fair bit easier.

They are also more stable during the screwing process, which can reduce instances of damage to the piece itself and the wood you are putting them into. When it comes to projects that have lots of parts and a tight amount of space to move in, these are also the best option.

Because the head has six different driving points, you can easily angle your tool to the right position and still apply the necessary volume of force.

Hornibrooks Tools and Fasteners stocks a large range of these designs in all different shapes and sizes, so you will always be able to find the right option for your next project.
