It is impossible to imagine modern roofing guild without plumbing screws. These screws play a very special role in the large family of screws. There is no other type of screw that has integrated two functions in one screw. On the one hand, the plumbing screws, like the other screws, can quickly connect two different materials and screw them together in a detachable manner. In doing so, the plumbing screw can be screwed into the wooden beam or rafter through the drive, which is located inside the head, using a suitable tool. The second function of a plumbing screw is that after fixing materials, a seal must also be created at the same time. This special task distinguishes plumbing screws in today's application. So let us summarize. A plumbing screw is a fastening screw on the one hand and a sealing screw on the other hand. What exactly are plumbing screws used for? We would like to explain this question to you in more detail. These special screws are used today in all trades that deal with roofs and roof coverings. So everything that has to be fixed around the roof. This also includes deflector plates and rain deflectors, which are supposed to catch and divert the rain. In most cases, aluminium or zinc sheets must be fixed to the wood so that they are tight. Cover plates on pitched roofs can also be neatly fastened using sheet metal covers. Not to forget the fastening with plumbing screws on corrugated and trapezoidal sheet metal roofs. As you can see, the fields of application can be quite different and not all of them can be listed. Surely you know many more areas of application for plumbing screws. Now we come a little more to the construction of plumbing screws and their sealing ring, which is placed below the head. You have to know that also the plumbing screw has a screw, which has a shaft and a head, which is manufactured a little bit further. The plumbing screw is also equipped with a drive inside the head, which allows the screw to be screwed into the bellows or roof truss without any problems. These drives are usually designed using a Torx mount. Below the screw head is the metal ring, which is equipped with a silicone rubber or sealing rubber. This metal plate is responsible for ensuring that a sealing surface is present and that the screw head presses firmly against the sealing surface. This creates a seal between the sheet metal or roof and the screw. The material from which the plumbing screws can be made is pure steel, i.e. construction steel with a coating that protects against corrosion, or the much better option of making the plumbing screws from V2A stainless steel or even V4A. These materials or alloys protect perfectly against corrosion.

The production of plumbing screws
In order for you to be able to use and install your plumbing screws every day in your company, it is of course necessary that the plumbing screws have to be manufactured first. For this purpose, old-fashioned manufacturing methods were used, of course only from today's point of view, because the machines that were used at that time could not yet have the same technical standard as the processes and machines of today. Since economy and speed were not so important at that time, the machines could also produce the plumbing screws made of stainless steel or steel at a much slower pace. Today, however, the situation is somewhat different. This means that today so-called CNC machines are used and can produce the screws that were produced on the older machines at that time. These new automatic machines are now called CNC screw machines and are specially designed to produce the plumbing screws for your building projects quickly and economically. CNC programs are used with which the machine data and screw data can be loaded quickly and efficiently, so that a changeover to another product can be carried out quickly. This way, very different screw diameters and thicknesses can be produced on one machine without causing long machine downtimes. This reduces the costs for the production of screws considerably. Each of these machines has a processing chuck within the machine on which most of the work steps can be carried out. Of course such a sheet metal screw machine also needs a drum that can hold all stainless steel wire stocks. This means that the machine is also able to produce unmanned, i.e. in night shift mode. When the wire is fed into the machine, production can begin. First the length of the wire is cut to length. Then the plumbing screws head is pre-compressed, whereby the collar is compressed against the shaft. Once this stage is completed, the second step is the upsetting of the final head with the drive. Now the plumbing screw is almost finished and only the coarse thread or the wood thread is missing, which turns the plumbing screw into a sealing screw that can be screwed into wood. The last working step is the washing and the removal of oil residues. Once this production stage is completed, the plumbing screws can be stored in our warehouse.
