Leading external door and timber window hardware specialist, Coastal Group, has teamed up with renowned Danish screw innovators Red Horse to exclusively launch the highest specification – PAS24:2012 compliant – timber screw.
Used by the world’s leading window manufacturers such as Velux and Velfac due to its quality and performance, the Red Horse cold forged screw is only available in the UK through Coastal Group – www.coastal-group.com/redhorse.
Manufactured in both cutting edge ZYTEC™ coating technology and A2 stainless steel, the new screws are designed to provide a range of benefits to the timber window and door market to enable 100% consistent fixing and high quality performance.
Cold forged for superior strength the new screws are available in 20mm to 120 mm sizes, and are suitable for manual and automated fixing lines and locking and hinge systems. Key features include a unique Headlock design ensuring a locked tight fixing every time and an ‘Instant Bite’ self-drilling tip, ensuring enhanced products and streamlined production lines.
As part of its dedication to quality, Coastal Group has also tested the ZYTEC™ screws when constructing a window in line with the Pas24:2012 Part Q test, which it passed.
Now it is providing the trade with free sample packs to see for itself the quality of the new Red Horse range of timber screws.
“We are absolutely delighted that through our work and collaboration with Red Horse we are able to launch this new range of high performance timber screws exclusively in the UK. The feedback we have had from the market so far has been exceptional with quality, ease of use and consistency through the locked tight fit and self-drilling tip really making their mark over traditional products,” said Coastal Group Director Anthony Jenner. “The fact they are also helping our customer’s products meet the security requirements set out in the PAS24:2012 Part Q standards which came into force on 1st October is a massive benefit and a further testament to their quality. We are now inviting the trade to contact us and try them for themselves by requesting one of our new sample packs,” he added.
Hampshire-based Input Joinery is one of many firms in the UK to use the new screws with company director Martin delighted with the results.
“When we tried the new Red Horse drills we were impressed with the performance and very happy with every aspect of them. From the clean look they now give our locking & hinge systems, through to the quality of the screw itself with its Torx head and pre drill tip,” he said.
