ForgeFix champions smarter fixing technology

ForgeFix is making it easier than ever for trade professionals, woodworking enthusiasts and the serious DIY-er to benefit from the latest generation of smarter wood fixing technology.

The business, which ranks as one of the UK’s leading distributors of fixings, fastenings and associated products like drill bits and telescopic ladders, has recently extended its TorxFast range.

The technologically advanced woodscrew is now available in 27 new sizes as well as a number of additional finishes – including a highly corrosion resistant, green RUSPERT® coated finish, which has been salt spray tested to 1000 hours.

Mike Smith, marketing director at ForgeFix, explains: “Since its introduction the TorxFast woodscrew has built up a firm following amongst trade professionals, woodworking enthusiasts and serious DIY-ers. So much so in fact, that many users who have tried the product now refuse to go back to anything else.

“By extending the range with new sizes and new finishes, we wanted to build on that success and to make the many intelligent benefits offered by TorxFast as widely available as possible.”

These benefits include a revolutionary and patented shank which combines not only a screw but also more notably a drill thread. This enables TorxFast screws to self-drill saving users the time and effort required to drill any form of pilot or other hole.

In addition, the innovative shank also removes rather than displaces the swarf created by the screw’s insertion. This enables users to fix much closer to the edge of a piece of wood or timber with minimal risk of the substrate splitting.

Further benefits include a hardened case and core for exceptional strength, a super sharp tip which gives immediate bite and recessed underhead ribs which provide superb countersinking and which reduce the risk of damage to decorative fittings like screw cup washers and ironmongery.

TorxFast screws are also CE approved, suitable for use in load-bearing timber construction and have a 35º bending angle which prevents them shearing when used in timber that flexes with use. 

Plus, as their name suggest, all TorxFast screws have a deep Torx head which ensures a firmer drive and higher torque levels to be achieved with a reduced risk of cam-out.

Mike Smith adds: “"Thanks to an impressive combination of well thought out features, TorxFast screws make fixing into wood quick, cleaner and easier than ever.

“By extending the range, ForgeFix is enabling more people to take advantage of these capabilities. Now, regardless of whether you're fixing modesty blocks or roof trusses, there's a TorxFast screw to meet your needs."
