Star Drive Deck Screws
Stainless Steel Deck Screws with a Torx Style 6 Lobe Drive
Star Drive Deck Screws, also called Torx Drive or 6 Lobe Deck Screws feature 6lobe (hexalobular internal)drive style which is designed to be more resistant to cam out than a standard slotted or Phillips bit. This allows for a higher torque screw installation.
Stainless Steel Deck Screws are used to attach wood or composite boards to the main beams of a deck. They feature a notched Type 17 point which easily pierces the wood which allows for an easy and fast installation, as well as sharp cutting threads for superior holding power and excellent retention in wood or composite materials. Star Drive Screws in this selection are commonly used in wood applications because of the shoulder between the fastener's head and threads to create a snug fit between the boards of the deck and the main beams.
Stainless Steel Deck Screws are corrosion resistant and suitable for exterior applications. For applications exposed to salt water moisture, we recommend using 316 Stainless Steel fasteners, as they are more resistant to rust and corrosion than 305 Stainless Steel. Stainless steel is used primarily for long lasting applications, due to its corrosion-resistant nature and durability. Scratching or burring the metal will not create surface rust as the corrosion resistance exists within the metal itself.
