Batten Screws are heavy duty fasteners, typically used for fixing larger timber joints such as decking sub-frames. These screws are also commonly used for laying larger (commercial) decking, boardwalks etc.
These 304 grade stainless steel fasteners have a bugle head (self embedding ribs), a Type 17 point for self drilling into wood (although hardwoods will need a pre-drilled pilot hole) and are a 14 gauge screw.
Constructed from 304 grade stainless steel these screws are corrosion resistant for most weather conditions, unless you are installing these screws within 300m of the ocean, or around a salt water pool in which case you will need the 316 stainless steel versions.
Commonly Batten Screws will have a 5mm hex drive which helps with the installation of the screws, although some do come with a square drive. All our Batten Screws have 10 TPI (threads per inch)
Available in sizes from 35mm to 150mm these galvanised batten screws are perfect for all outdoor installations.
