SDWS16300Q Strong Drive Framing Screw
The SDWS Framing screw is designed and load-rated for replacing 16d, 10d and 8d nails in framing applications. The SDWS Framing screw is 0.160" in diameter and superior to nails in holding power and pull-out resistance. It is code listed under IAPMO UES ER-192 and meets 2012 and 2015 IRC and IBC code requirements for several common wood framing and engineered-wood applications.
The screw has a SawTooth point that makes for fast installations with reduced torque without predrilling, and its specially designed head countersinks easily to provide a clean, flush finish. The T-25 bit holds the 6-lobe recess tightly, reducing cam-out and head stripping.
Large head with underhead box-nibs provides increased bearing in structural applications and provides clean and easy countersinking (0.44" head dia.)
