Strong-Drive® DWP WOOD SS Screw 

Strong-Drive® DWP WOOD SS Screw

On This Page

The Strong-Drive DWP Wood SS screw is a powerful, load-rated fastening solution for deck, dock and general exterior applications where extra corrosion protection and load specifications are required. The #12 and #14 Strong-Drive DWP Wood SS flat-head screws are structural fasteners that have been tested in accordance with ICC-ES acceptance criteria AC233 and are load rated for shear, pull-through and withdrawal resistance. With its specially designed sharp-point and unique box-threads, the DWP WOOD SS is a great solution for exterior engineered structural connections, such as framing, ledgers, stair treads and guard rails in areas where they will be exposed to high or severe corrosion. Choose Type 316 stainless steel for seaside and coastal environments.

Key Features

  • Unique “box” thread design with raised-ridge technology greatly reduces driving torque by 35%, allowing more screws driven per single battery charge
  • Specially designed sharp point penetrates hard wood products with ease
  • Use with wood, engineered wood and polymer materials
  • 6-lobe drive provides a secure bit fit resulting in an easy drive and long bit life
  • Choose Type 316 stainless steel for seaside applications

Applications

  • Decking, Docks and Boardwalks; Engineered General Exterior

Product Includes

  • 6-lobe bit included: BIT27T-2

  1. All applications are based on full penetration into the main member. Full penetration is the screw length minus the side member thickness.
  2. Allowable loads are shown at the wood load duration factor of CD = 1.0. Loads may be increased for load duration per the building code up to a CD = 1.6.
  3. Tabulated values must be multiplied by all applicable adjustment factors per the NDS.
  4. For in-service moisture content greater than 19%, use CM = 0.7.
  5. The tabulated loads are applicable to Type 305 and Type 316 stainless-steel flat-head screw model numbers.
  6. Loads are based on installation into the side grain of the wood with the screw axis perpendicular to the face of the member.
  7. Minimum fastener spacing requirements to achieve loads: 6" end distance, 1 7/16" edge distance.
  8. The above loads are based on tests of connections with main and side members of the same species.

  1. The tabulated allowable screw tension value is the tensile strength of the steel screw and may not be multiplied by any adjustment factors.
  2. The tabulated reference withdrawal design value, W, is in pounds per inch of the thread penetration into the side grain of the main member.
  3. The tabulated reference pull-through design value, P, is the allowable load for the fastener head pull-through for a minimum 1 1/2"-thick side member.
  4. Tabulated reference withdrawal and pull-through design values, W and P, are shown at a load duration factor, CD, = 1.0 and a wet service factor, CM, = 1.0. Loads may be increased for load duration per the building code up to a CD = 1.6. Tabulated values must be multiplied by all applicable adjustment factors from the NDS as referenced in the IBC or IRC.
  5. Embedded thread length is that portion held in the main member including the screw point.
  6. For in-service moisture content greater than 19%, use CM = 0.7.
