Bugle Head Square Drive Deck Screws
Square Drive 316 Stainless Steel Deck Screws with a type 17 point have a bugle flat head and are used for fastening wood and composite decks to the main beams. 316 stainless steel provides the strongest corrosion resistance and is non magnetic. Deck Screws in 316 Stainless Steel are used for salt water and water treatment applications. Used on boats, docks, oil gas refining plants for direct use in salt water.
This grade of stainless steel is used and recommended for applications in severe, harsh or marine environments. Its corrosion resistance is greater than 18-8 stainless, which is why we recommend using 316 stainless steel fasteners for salt water application. It is important to remember that even the salt in the air near a body of salt water can do damage to dry applications, so 316 is the material of choice. Common applications of 316 stainless steel fasteners include use on boats, docks, piers, and pools.
