TeFix® timber screw from SIHGA®
When fixing wood to wood
, cracks and gaps can not only disrupt the overall appearance, but also lead to damage from moisture ingress and insect infestation. Hard woods in particular therefore usually require pre-drilling. However, this does not have to be the case – as SIHGA® demonstrates with the TeFix® timber screw
. With the innovative screw
for timber construction
- especially in terraces
- it is possible to screw in easily and cleanly without pre-drilling and pre-sinking
. The timber screw not only saves time during assembly but also prevents the formation of cracks and gaps at the same time.
TeFix® timber screw for a clean result without pre-drilling
Without pre-drilling or pre-sinking, cracks or splits can occur when screwing screws into wood. With the development of the TeFix® timber screw, SIHGA® has come up with an intelligent solution to this problem when attaching wood to wood. Especially in façade cladding or terraces made of wood, screw are required that deliver both efficiency and a clean end result. SIHGA® combines these requirements with the TeFix® timber screw. This is because it enables easy screwing in – without pre-drilling and pre-sinking. The TeFix® timber construction screw has a positive influence on the service life of wood constructions and at the same time allows efficient and safe assembly. The screw also has a specially designed friction shaft. This prevents cracking and splitting. It pre-drills the wood and thus ensures swelling and shrinkage. The TeFix® also has an optimised, multi-stage countersunk head. Thin and equipped with saw-tooth ribs, it prevents the wood from being displaced or splintered.
Areas of application for the TeFix® timber screw
The TeFix® timber screw is protected against corrosion by the hardened, stainless steel design and is therefore particularly suitable for outdoor applications such as terrace or façade construction. The screw can be used for almost all softwoods, hardwoods and thermowoods.
The TeFix® is preferably used in combination with KompeFix®
from SIHGA®. The structural wood protection
creates space between the planks and thus ensures good ventilation as well as a long service life of the screw and wood
. The TeFix® timber construction screw is supplied with the matching accessories
consisting of a SIHGAFIX® stainless steel bit
, Systemstift and assembly instructions.
