Fasteners feature PrimeGuard® Nano Coating technology for superior durability in wood or composite projects.
New Grip-Rite® DeckForce® premium exterior screws, offer superior performance and longevity, thanks to an innovative PrimeGuard® Nano Coating that’s engineered for strength, durability, corrosion resistance — and peace of mind.
The introduction is driven by consumer demand for beautiful, long-lasting outdoor living spaces, according to Michael Engle, Senior Director of Branded Product at PrimeSource Building Products. “More homeowners want decks and patios where they can just enjoy the outdoors, without having to worry about replacing corroded screws,” said Engle. “Grip-Rite® DeckForce® screws are designed to be easy to use and provide the finish people want.”
Featuring a groundbreaking new technology, Grip-Rite® DeckForce® screws are enveloped with PrimeGuard® Nano Coating technology, which is formulated to provide a seamless seal and smooth finish, making screws ultra corrosion resistant. The coating carries a lifetime guarantee, giving pros and homeowners confidence in the integrity and security of their project.
The Grip-Rite® DeckForce® line includes two different models specifically engineered for wood or composite decking. The wood screws are designed for building wooden decks and fences, with a T-17 auto-pilot tip, dual-action auger threads, a diamond-file shank and a patent pending wedge-lock head. They can be used in both treated and non-treated lumber. The composite screws are suited for composite and PVC decking, with aggressive saw teeth, a T-17 saw tip, and hi-lo threads with an undercut head – to speed installation and achieve the ideal finish.
The wood and composite screws feature T-25 and T-20 star drive heads, respectively, for a secure grip when installing. Both sets of screws are available in multiple colors, allowing installers to color-match to the deck material and provide a clean, uninterrupted look.
Grip-Rite® DeckForce® Screws are currently available in limited distribution at Lowe’s Home Improvement centers in 1, 5, and 25 pound packages for wood screws and 1, 5, and 10 pound packages for composite screws. Counter merchandisers are available to customers through their sales representative upon request. Grip-Rite® DeckForce® Screws will launch nationally at the 2024 International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
