The pressure is on with ESSVE’S sill plate screw!

Now it will become easier to mount sill and foundation beams. ESSVE’S new sill plate screw uses a new smart design to push the wood toward the surface.

”All concrete screws on the market tend to be fully threaded, which means that the sill plate won’t be pushed down far enough, especially if it is bent at the time of mounting”, says Jonas Svensson, Category Manager Fixings at ESSVE.
It was after a number of requests from both Norwegian and Swedish customers that ESSVE’S product specialists decided to create a concrete screw that would solve the problem.
”The result was a screw with a generous release between head and thread. Its design causes it to effectively push the wood onto the concrete”, says Jonas Svensson.
ESSVE’S new hardened sill plate screw is produced for mounting of 45-50 mm thick sill plate/frame beams onto concrete. The surface treatment handles Climate Class 2, which is the requirement for mounting in unheated, under roof, spaces. Mount it directly in a pre-drilled hole without a plug. Its countersunk head does not restrict the mounting position of wood studs/beams.

3 truths about ESSVE’s new sill plate screw!
Do not overpull the screw! It will not make the fixing stronger – on the contrary it’s weakened!
The screw works well in natural rock and brick.
The load bearing capacity increases with the mounting depth.
