Delivering next generation fixings

As part of its commitment to continued technological and product innovation, ForgeFix has launched a new and improved version of its TorxFast multi-purpose woodscrew. Already a trade favourite, this popular product has undergone a number of impressive enhancements to offer a whole host of next generation benefits.

“When it comes to multi-purpose woodscrews capable of making light work of most fixing projects, ForgeFix has long extolled TorxFast as one of the best products on the market,” explains Mike Smith, Sales and Marketing Director at the leading distributor of fixings, fastenings and associated products.

“However, as a business, we’re not content to rest on our laurels and we’re always looking to find new opportunities to enhance our range. The re-launch of our TorxFast screw is very much indicative of this approach and it is now able to offer even higher levels of performance, effectiveness and customer satisfaction.”

In particular, the multi-purpose woodscrews employ recessed underhead ribs that provide excellent countersinking and reduce the risk of damage to decorative fittings such as screw cup washers or ironmongery. The screws also feature a deep Torx head for reduced cam-out, and as an added benefit, every box comes complete with a complimentary insert bit.

Further advantages include a super sharp tip, which gives immediate bite from the very first turn and eliminates the need for piloting, as well as a unique single threaded, spiral shank that enables TorxFast to achieve a firmer drive into most substrates.

CE approved and suitable for use in load bearing timber, TorxFast also benefits from a hardened case and core for exceptional strength while a Cr6+, yellow/zinc plated surface ensures that the screw is corrosion resistant. In addition, a 35o bending angle prevents screw shearing when used in timber that flexes with use and also offers improved pull out value and less risk of working loose when used in this material.

As Mike Smith concludes: “At ForgeFix, we’re committed to offering our stockists cost effective, high performance solutions that make life easier for the end-user. The new and improved TorxFast screws maintain that tradition and we’re confident that they will continue to prove a great success with tradesmen across the UK.”
