TIMCO Screws have landed! We are really pleased to announce the arrival of the TIMCO Screw range on the Rapid Tools Direct site. You heard it here first, folks!
The TIMCO brand is a highly reputable one and the quality of their products meant that we had no hesitation in adding their screws to our site. To help you choose the right screw for your needs, we have put together a profile of the different types and the uses that each are best suited for:
- Top of the bill are the ever-popular multi-purpose Classic Screws. They are made of zinc, are yellow passivated and are sure to prove a boon to professional tradesmen and DIY’ers throughout the country. A reliable screw for a multitude of tasks, including working with hardwood, softwood, thin sheet metal, chipboard, MDF and plastic. Think of them as a fixing workhorse – a jack of all screws if you will.
- Next up are the Drywall Screws – these are more specialised and are ideally suited to attaching drywall to wood or metal studs. They are not really designed for use with wood (see the Wood screws section below if you need screws for your woodworking project). Unlike the Classic screws discussed earlier, Drywall screws are black passivated and the business end of this screw has a 25 degree super sharp point. There is a choice of coarse and fine thread screws available.
- TIMCO Twin Threaded Wood Screws are perfect for using with softwoods and various types of hardwood. They are zinc plated with a double countersunk head and a 60 degree twin thread for faster insertion.
- Lastly, we have added Decking Screws that are designed to be used outside in all weather conditions. The organic green coating provides great protection from the elements – these rugged screws have been able to withstand 1,000 hours of salt spray testing! They come with a double countersunk head and a double slash point for rapid pick-up.
So there we have it. Just remember that if you want to get the job done right first time use these screws – they will not disappoint. All the above are Phillips recess screws and can be purchased in tubs or boxes, whichever you prefer. Feel free to take a look on our site for more details.
This is an exciting time for us at Rapid Tools Direct and we are sure that these new brands and products will prove to be hugely popular with our readers. As always the focus is on quality and providing our customers with the tools that they want at prices they can afford.
In fact, these screws are just the latest in a number of product additions that we are planning to introduce over the coming months. Stay tuned for some more exciting product announcements coming shortly!
