Produced with the installer in mind, fasteners are designed to be cost effective and efficient, saving time on the job. Innovative screws include STARTURN multipurpose woodscrews and StarFix plugless masonry fixings. Both deliver all round superior performance when compared with similar fixings due to the unique, StarForm™ cutting thread - providing faster insertion with reduced torque. The thread begins at the very point of the screw, which means that starting is virtually instant and a lubricated finish improves speed of insertion - screws are also plated to exceed all industry technical recommendations.
The unique StarForm™ cutting thread is a true cutting thread - unlike the thread forms found on other screw fixings which merely give the impression of a cutting thread due to the presence of (largely ineffectual) clearance channels. The StarForm™ thread provides superior performance by self tapping a reciprocal thread into the substrate. Benefits include; better resistance to the fixing pulling out of the anchor base due to the more effective thread engagement and reduced torque required to drive in (up to 30% less). This reduces installer fatigue, extends batter life and decreases the potential for the occurrence of repetitive stress injury.
Latest innovative building products include PROSHIELD™, a water repellent environmentally friendly masonry treatment that is quick and easy to apply. It penetrates to provide breathable, invisible protection from damaging water ingress, maintaining masonry appearance whilst reducing maintenance costs. A proven advantage when renovating existing building structures, adding conservatories or creating extension structures. PROSHIELD™ can also improve the thermal efficiency of an exposed dwelling wall on average up to 25%. – without expensive and feature changing additions, such as cladding and other intrusive insulation systems.
