Screw type for panatrim onto building cladding

Hi,

I have a quote for a job and just want to be sure I use the right screws.

its an 8x4 sign on to corrugated clad building.

Are self tappers ok or would you use something else.

Cheers

J

If by self tappers you are referring to Tek Screws then yes these are fine. Just make sure you buy the right sort of screw for the cladding you are fitting to.

thanks Martin,

Was meaning just self-tapping screws, but will look at the tek you suggest.

Cheers

Tek screws are designed for this sort of work so I wouldn't use anything else.

That's what you're looking for Johnny.

Maybe not that particular size but along those lines. We use the Screwfix ones all the time and they're great.

If you buy from screwfix just make sure it's the ones with 3/8" - 8mm heads, otherwise you will be kn*ckered when trying to buy caps as some of the Screwfix ones have 10mm heads.

Try these guys:

They are local to me and will give any advise you need and have a great selection. They also produce in house TEK screws with coloured heads that need a special driver. They look good and avoid the possibility of caps coming off.

I'm in no way connected to them, but think they would be a worthwhile toolbar addition.
