Blackhawk 10-gauge drill point countersunk 304 stainless steel T20 star drive decking screws are precision-engineered for optimal performance in decking applications. These high-quality screws are available in various sizes and materials to suit your specific needs. Choosing the right screw is essential to ensure efficient and cost-effective completion of your decking project. Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws boast a range of advanced features, including superior corrosion resistance and ease of installation, enhancing the overall decking experience.

304 Stainless Steel

When considering a purchase decision, it is essential to carefully evaluate the material used for the screws, as this can greatly impact the strength and durability of the deck. The Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws, constructed with 304-grade stainless steel, offer these key advantages:

- Protection against corrosion in most external applications

- An appealing silver finish

- Preferred material by decking professionals

Premature corrosion of fasteners can result from various environmental factors, including but not limited to:

- Salt water and salty air from a saltwater body

- Preservative-treated wood

- Soils

- Substandard decking oil or paint

We recommend discussing these considerations with your builder or local council before commencing any work.

Size

The Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws are available in two lengths: 50mm and 65mm, and have a 10 gauge.

For those unfamiliar with the term "gauge," it is the measurement of the screw's diameter. So, in this case, the Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws come with a 10 gauge diameter.

When it comes to determining the length of the required screw, it is crucial to consider the type of timber being used for both the decking and joists. For instance, when fastening into softwood joists, the screw length should be 2.5 times the thickness of the decking board. Conversely, when fastening into hardwood joists, the screw length should be 2 times the thickness of the decking boards. It is important to note that Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws are not suitable for use with metal joists.

Fortunately, Blackhawk Fasteners has simplified the process of selecting the appropriate screw for your needs. By visiting the "Choosing the Right Screw" page, you can easily determine the necessary length, gauge, and even corrosion resistance level required for your specific project.

Drill Point

Drill point refers to the sharp, drill like point at the end of the screw. The Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws have a patented point designed to reduce the need to pre-drill. The drill point:

Cuts into the timber creating its own pilot hole

Reduces the need to pre-drill your decking boards

Can pre-drill into a greater number of timber species, including most hardwoods

Different species of decking timber have different hardness levels. This will determine the need for pre-drilling. It is recommended that you always pre-drill the ends of the decking boards as they are prone to splitting.

T20 Star Drive

The T20 star-drive has a 6 point, star-shaped pattern. The star-drive shape:

Increases the surface area that the tool connects with

Allows more torque to be applied when driving the screw

Reduces the chances of "cam-out" and damage to the screw or tool

"Cam-out" is a term used when the tool that is driving the screw slips out.

BLACKHAWK provides 2 free 50mm T20 star drive bit that are suitable for use in impact drivers.

Truss Head

A truss head has a smaller profile than a countersunk head and cuts through the decking surface. The Blackhawk Speed Drive decking screws have integrated ribs on the underside of the head. This helps to remove excess timber, resulting in smoother, cleaner finish.
