New black coatings for an aesthetically pleasing line-up 03 May 2024

In order to offer a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to its popular Deck-Drive™ DSV WOOD Deck Screws, Simpson Strong-Tie has recently introduced a black coated version to the Deck-Drive™ product line-up.

The DSV Wood deck screws are innovatively designed with preservative-treated decking and wood-to-wood applications in mind. Featuring underhead nibs, the screws easily countersink into the board for a clean and streamlined appearance. A high-low threaded tip allows for easy driving and the shank is specially designed to withstand the swelling and shrinkage commonly found in wooden construction. The low torque threads, according to the company, also allow for up to 35% more screws to be driven per charge, offering users a time-saving advantage.

Other key features include a Quik Guard coating that provides corrosion resistance against exterior elements and certain wood treatments. The new colour addition joins a pre-existing selection of tan, red and grey, fitting a variety of wood applications.

“The new black DSV screw not only provides strength and durability but also adds a touch of aesthetics to outdoor living spaces, whether you're a professional builder or embarking on a DIY project, it’s the ideal choice for decking, fencing, outdoor furniture projects, pergolas and more,” says Eric Philip, fasteners product manager for Simpson Strong-Tie.

Deck-Drive DSV Wood screws with the black Quik Guard coating come in three different lengths for hand-drive applications. Multiple package sizes are also available.
