Paslode Structural Screws

PASLODE STRUCTURAL SCREWS (PSTS)

paslode structural screws

Paslode Structural Screws (PSTS) are found in various applications including roof trusses, engineered joists and timber frame. Paslode Structural Screws are used where multiple members are fixed together. Typically these can be trimmer joists, open web floor joists, metal web floor joists, lintels and multiple trusses (or girders).

Paslode Structural Screws (PSTS) are often incorporated in our floor packages for engineered joists  and roof packages. PSTS screws can also be purchased separately.

PASLODE STRUCTURAL SCREWS – BENEFITS & FEATURES
  • Large diameter flanges under heads ensure very EN 4592 high resistance to pull-through loads
  • Requires no pre-drilling
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Higher lateral load capacity than nails or screws of similar diameter
  • Upgraded to improve withdrawal and shear load capabilities, increase speed of installation and to meet the design requirements of Eurocode 5

For full technical and installation details consult the Cullen website or ‘The Cullen Connection’ technical guide.

CONNECTING MULTIPLE METAL WEB JOISTS WITH PSTS

2-ply joists are typically used around openings where greater stiffness is required for oncoming point loads from trimmed joists and binders.
It is essential that the correct connection detail is used to ensure this unit acts as one, rather than two halves moving against each other, which can cause excessive deflection in the floor.
Recommended connectors include the proprietary Cullen OW-Clip or Paslode PSTS.

CONNECTING MULTIPLE GLULAM & SOLID TIMBER MEMBERS WITH PSTS

Multi-ply solid timber members are typically used within roofs for supporting other roof members or trimming openings. Some examples include purlins, binders and ridge beams.

Within engineered floors solid timber multiples are used for trimming around openings, for example stairwells and chimneys.

It is essential that the correct connection detail is used. This will be provided a as a fixing schedule supplied with either the roof package or floor package.
