Drywall Screws Collated (Auto feed guns)
Drywall, also known as plasterboard or wallboard, is a panel of gypsum plaster sandwiched between two thick sheets of paper. Because of its construction, it is not advisable to use standard, everyday screws and in the construction world, auto feed drivers or guns are commonly used to feed the screws. These devices, of course, reduce the effort required to apply the screws to the drywall and increase the speed at which the user is able to complete the task. Below is some information about the kind of screws available for use in either metal frame or timber drywall systems.
For drilling into metal frame systems, collated zinc drywall screws are recommended as they offer strength and effectiveness. Used in conjunction with an auto feed driver, Concept collated drywall screws offer speed and precision with reduced jamming and wastage. As they are available in a variety of sizes from 25mm to 50mm, you are sure to find the collated zinc drywall screws you need to finish your project. If that project is a large one, consider buying your screws in bulk to save some money. If the drywall system is made of timber instead of metal, you will need different screws. T
he screw of choice should have a coarser grain to allow it to grip into the wood better and reduce the likelihood of it becoming loose over time. Concept also manufactures a coarse grain collated drywall screw specifically for application in this circumstance. Applied using a drywall gun, the hardened screws are easy and quick to apply. As with the metal frame version, they benefit from reduced jamming from the distinctive black feeding strip that allows screws to be released into the machine precisely, ready to be screwed into the wall.
Reduced jamming also translates into reduced wastage as more of your screws will find themselves in the wall, not on the floor. As timber systems can often employ thicker beams, due to wood’s tendency to be weaker than metal, the Concept collated course thread drywall screws designed for timber come in a larger range of sizes. Starting at 25mm and going right through to 75mm, you should be able to find the right size of screw.
