White fence in the countryside to present non load bearing connections with screws

Pay Attention To

Environment! INTERIOR or EXTERIOR?

Timber should be PRE-DRILLED when density of the timber is greater than 500 kg/m3 and/or diameter (side dimension) of the screw exeeds 6 mm.

Screw pointside PENETRATION LENGTH should be at least 6x DIAMETER.

Is the screw COLOR important?

PointType 17 point*

- reduces torque and the likelihood of the timber splitting when the screw is inserted close to the edge
- doesn't require a pilot hole into most wood types

NOTE!

Some sellers have info that point is A 25 but according to TIMco info, new screws are with Type 17 points.
Sharp Point*

- for faster bite
- capable of penetrating 0.8mm steel
