5 reasons why you should be using concrete screws
Published: 2021-06-04 | Updated: 2023-04-20
Concrete screws have been gaining in popularity over the past years due to their time-saving and cost-reducing capabilities. They are also easy to use and are extremely versatile which is why they are quickly becoming the go to anchor for installations on concrete.
Below we go through 5 reasons why you should be using concrete screws.
1) Simple Installation
Concrete screws are one of the quickest and easiest methods of installation, as they are directly screwed into the concrete. All you need to do is pre-drill and blow out the hole, then insert the screw! You can save up to 60 seconds compared to traditional installation methods and unlike other anchors you do not need additional steps or tools. This helps reduce installation time and increases efficiency.
2) Flexible Installations
Unlike other methods of installation on concrete, once the concrete screw has been installed you are able to remove it. This is great when you are working on projects that are always changing or if a mistake is made. All you have to do is remove the screw and fill in the hole! Because concrete screws do not apply expansion when installed they are also flexible in their ability to be placed close to the edge or to each other.
3) Variety of Head Types
The concrete screw is extremely versatile as it is available in a variety of different head types. Whether you're installing rails and supports with a pan-head screw, or securing fences and railings with a hex-head, they can be applied in many different situations.
4) Approvals and Ratings
Most concrete screws come with a range of approvals and certifications including ETA approvals, fire resistance ratings and seismic approvals. This means you know that you are using the highest quality fixings which can be used in a wide range of applications. For example, CELO's BTSB concrete screw comes with ETA, fire, and seismic approval making it an ideal solution to use in earthquake prone areas and buildings, as well as fixing rails in fire escapes. But please check documentation of each screw to confirm approvals and ratings.
5) Budget Reductions
You save on installation costs, from the reduction in time it takes to complete a project, and will also reduce costs if a mistake is made and you need to un-install and move the screw. Simple installation also means you do not need additional equipment, further reducing onsite costs.
