Structural wood screws and engineered brackets are becoming increasingly more common, quite simply because they’re stronger, less expensive, easier, and faster to install than traditional lag bolts and fasteners. Deck Expressions is proud to offer Simpson Strong-Tie and FastenMaster Lok Line of structural wood screws and super rugged fasteners in its catalogue of deck building tools and materials.
Contractors and homeowners are quickly moving from lag bolts to structural screws and fasteners for wood to wood connections, for a variety of reasons. The LOK line by Fastenmaster consists of a variety of high-quality, rigorously tested and code-approved wood screws and heavy duty fasteners designed to improve structural integrity and vastly improve work and cost efficiency.
LOK Line’s wood screws are thinner and feature a sharper point than lag bolts, resulting in increased precision and no pre-drilling. Depending on your specific project, there are a wide variety of LOK screw sizes that are intended for highly specific purposes and functions. The TimberLOK Heavy Duty Wood Screw, for instance, is available in 4 sizes and designed for use in attaching rafters or trusses to a double top plate. HeadLOK, a heavy duty, flathead wood screw is the best choice for replacing ⅜" lag bolts and ideal for decks, fences, SIPs, kitchen cabinets and more.
Save time by skipping the pre-drilling and wood splitting with lag screws and work faster, easier, and stronger with the FastenMaster LOK Line of structural wood screws and fasteners from Deck Expressions.
