Optimaxx introduce masonry screws to their range

OPTIMAXX is a brand leading by example in the wood screw market who have taken wood screw technology to a whole new level. By incorporating all the best features that have been developed over many decades, Optimaxx is recognised by many as the highest performing range of wood screws in the market.

Now under the same ethos, they’re ready to branch out into the masonry screw market with a specially designed fixing.

The newest addition to the range, Optimaxx WallBite® is an all-steel, self-drilling one-piece threaded fastener which is fully compliant to fire safety wiring regulation BS 7671:2008. These non-combustible screws are designed for light to medium duty applications including installing fire-rated clips and other electrical installations.

Optimaxx WallBite® is suitable for a wide range of materials including concrete, brick, stone, plasterboard and wood. No pre-drilling is required in wood and plasterboard applications and up to 5.5mm pre-drilled holes may be required for some masonry materials. Available in sizes 6.5mm x 32mm and 6.5mm x 38mm, Optimaxx WallBite® screws offer white and chrome head finishes.

This fast and effective fixing method offers a better fixing than traditional screw and plug methods in many applications as well as providing the important all-metal fixing solution. Plumbers, Electricians and general builders will prove significant time savings when fixing conduit, socket boxes, light fittings and numerous other everyday applications.

The screws are coated with the renowned Maxxtect exterior coating making them suitable for both interior and exterior application and also benefit from a Torx drive ensuring there is no ‘Cam Out’ in more demanding concrete and brick applications.

WallBite® will be rolling out in builder merchants in April across the UK, so be sure to grab yours soon!
