Simpson Strong-Tie Expands Options for SDWS Timber Screws

Strong-Drive® SDWS Timber Screw

Pleasanton, Calif. — Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, now offers its SDWS Timber screws with a double-barrier black exterior coating. The new black Strong-Drive® SDWS Timber screw not only offers strength and durability but also adds a touch of aesthetics to outdoor living spaces, making it the ideal choice for deck framing, fencing, pergolas and more.

Strong-Drive® SDWS Timber Screws

Designed for projects that demand a robust fastening solution and high-strength wood-to-wood and wood-to-EWP attachments, SDWS Timber screws feature a bold thread design for superior holding power, a 0.220″ shank diameter that provides amazing strength, and a large washer head for maximum bearing area. In addition, the double-barrier coating delivers corrosion resistance equivalent to hot-dip galvanization, making it suitable for certain exterior and preservative-treated wood applications.

The screws also help ease installation: The knurled shank and patented SawTooth® point ensure fast starts, reduce installation torque, and eliminate the need for predrilling in most applications. The screws’ underhead nibs allow the head to be driven flush to the surface.

Strong-Drive® SDWS Timber Screw

SDWS Timber screws with the new black coating come in five lengths: 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 8″ and 10″. Individual and bulk packs are available.
