Using the same screw to attach timber screening to aluminium, and steel artwork to a concrete wall, might seem like a pipe dream, but it’s not science fiction – the Bremick® MultiONE® is an innovation that blows everything else out of the water.
Anyone who knows what they’re doing will pre-drill before driving screws into hardwood. Ordinary self-drilling screws are nothing new, but while they’re good for whacking down a few deck boards, they don’t give you the same quality result as pre-drilling properly. How much time would you save if the screw drilled a true pilot hole for itself? Enter the Bremick® MultiONE®; it has a legit drill point that can handle metal as well as timber, even some masonry (including fibre cement sheet). These screws plunge into steel, ironbark and most other materials just like brand-new, razor-sharp drill bits – because that’s what they are at the pointy end.
Many D.I.Y.ers fear those awkward material combinations, like securing hardwood to softwood, or fibre cement to steel. With MultiONE®, the guesswork disappears – its precision-engineered thread will bite into almost any material. You can even drive the MultiONE® into higher-density or solid masonry, such as concrete or blockwork; in this case, you will need to pre-drill with a tungsten-tip masonry bit, but no plastic plug is needed – the screw just grips the wall.
MultiONE® screws are available in two head types. The Contour head applies strong compressive force, clamping the surface material firmly to the substrate when driven. The Countersunk Truss head, on the other hand, features an ingenious collared thread that will ensure a flush, consistent finish, effortlessly, every time.
MultiONE® screws have yet more features to love. MultiONE®’s Torx®* compatible drive, as the name suggests, lets you apply monster levels of torque to the screw – and another advantage is that the positively engaged socket helps it happily stay on the free included driver bit, hands free. MultiONE® is also seriously built to last. Second only to solid 316/304 stainless steel, MultiONE® screws have the B8® coating, which is rated eight times tougher than even Class 4 galvanised, providing maximum abrasion and corrosion resistance. If you need more features, the B8® coating even provides 30 per cent faster drilling!
