Sheet Metal Ductwork Screws
The S-MS HVAC zip screws are a combination of sharp as well as self-drilling screws. They are tailor made to attach sheet metal pieces, ranging from 18 to 28 gauges. They adopt the Hyper Thread technology to deliver the off-angle fastening capability, even in heavy-duty gauge sheet metal. These are also capable of being driven up to 30 degrees.
This advanced technology offers a tapered point and a shank for continuous driving with almost no metal filings. According to the Hilti Group, this specialized off-angle fastening quality in gauges ranging from 18 to 28 cuts off the installation time at much ease, while those enabled with high-profile heads and limited metal filings increase safety.
These specialized screws are made up of carbon steel along-with zinc electroplating and are available in two sizes. While the #10 S-MS is used for applications falling between 18 and 26 gauge and are driven with a 5/16-inch drive, the other type, the #8 S-MS is used for applications falling between 20 and 28 gauge and are driven with a 1/4-inch drive.
Sheet Metal Zip Screws
The S-MS HVAC zip screws also adopt the above mentioned technology to produce off-angle tightening, even in heavy-gauge sheet metal. This applied technology enables these screws with a tapered end and shank for consistent driving without metal filings.
They help join metal sheets up to two layers of 18-gauge and the heads of such fasteners help reduce any stress from base material supplanting. These are specially designed to fasten sheet metal ranging between 18 and 28 gauge, plus these are self-piercing and can be easily driven even at 30 degrees.
