Stainless Steel Modified Truss Head Sheet Metal Screws
Phillips Modified Truss Head Type 17 Point Screws in 305 Stainless Steel
Phillips Modified Truss Head Sheet Metal Screws feature a Phillips drive and a notched type 17 point at the tip to aid in chip removal during thread cutting. Modified Truss Head Screws (also known as Lath Screws) feature an oversized domed head with a flange, similar to an integral washer. Modified Truss Head Screws have a 100 degree undercut which creates a larger area beneath the screw's head for a larger bearing surface. Modified Truss Head Sheet Metal Screws are commonly used in applications fastening to wood.
Phillips Modified Truss Head Sheet Metal Screws are available in Grade 305 Stainless Steel. This grade has been developed specifically to improve the cold heading qualities of 18-8. Corrosion resistance and physical qualities are equal to Type 304. 305 stainless steel is most commonly used to make deck screws, which are used to fasten wood or composite boards to the main beams of a deck.
