Drywall Screws come in 2 types – Point Screws for fixing plasterboard into lighter gauge Metal C Studs and Softwood, and Self Drill Screws for fixing Plasterboard into heavier gauge metal such as Metal I Studs and Metal C Studs exceeding 0.7 gauge. Self Drill or Tek Screws as they are also known can also be used for fixing metal together – for example where Metal Studs meet Metal Channels and for joining Metal Ceiling Channels together. Drywall Point and Self Drill Screws come in a variety of sizes ranging from 25mm to 100mm. You can also get Tek screws as small as 13mm for fixing Metal together.[CATS]All Drywall screws come in 2 finishes – Brass Zinc Plated (BZP) or Black Phosphate and are countersunk for finishing flush with the plasterboard.
Drywall fixings are also available for locating into the Plasterboard ready to take a drywall screw for mounting various items onto the Plasterboard.
Metal Nailins Anchors and Plastic Hammerfix anchors are also available . These can be used for fixing plasterboard and other materials into blockwork, masonry and concrete and range in size from 30mm up to 100mm. Both require the substrate to be pre drilled prior to fixing the Anchor.
A range of plastic fixings are available similar to Rawl Plug and Plas Plugs and provide a range of Plastic Plugs which are drilled and fitted into the substrate. These in turn allow fixings to be securely located into walls.
There are also a range of Acoustic Fixings which are specifically designed for upgrading the acoustic performance of a construction. The most common being an acoustic hanger for use in a ceiling which combines a ceiling hanger with a rubber grommet to help reduce the reverberation of sound.
