Simpson Strong-Tie set of fasteners improves installation of cement backerboard, subfloor and underlayment materials.

Simpson Strong-Tie now offers a set of fasteners designed for improved installation of cement backerboard, subfloor and underlayment materials.

The Cement Board screw, MTH Underlayment screw and Strong-Drive WSNTL Subfloor screw are designed with sharp points and recessed heads to make installations easy with fewer cam-outs. Their thread design ensures that materials are held together and create a foundation for tile, counters, backsplashes or floor coverings.

The ANSI A108-compliant Cement Board screw is durable. With its corrosion-resistant coating, the Cement Board screw is ideal for use with all tile and cement backerboards.

The MTH Underlayment screw is designed for underlayment-to-subfloor installations. It prevents squeaking by holding underlayment tight to the subfloor and resisting pullout. The compact trim head allows for a flush surface and prevents floor coverings from settling in countersink recesses.

The ICC-ES ESR-1472 code-listed Strong-Drive WSNTL Subfloor screw has a twin-lead thread pattern for subfloor installations. With lateral, shear and withdrawal values that exceed those of 10d common nails, the holding power eliminates gaps between the joist and subfloor that cause floor squeaks. The WSNTL screw countersinks and backs out smoothly, allowing for future access to floor cavities.
