Imagine how long this job would have taken ­– without the Quik Drive tool and the self-drilling screws!

This is New Zealand Post’s new facility for automated parcel sorting near Christchurch Airport. Check out the work being carried out by the Hanham & Philp Contractors, and how they installed this mezzanine floor using the Quik Drive tool with CBSDGL158SA 10g x 42mm collated screws for ply fixing to steel frame.

The self-drilling CBSDG screw is ideal for fixing cement sheeting, underlay or timber-to-steel joists. The design requires no predrilling, making them easier and faster to install than standard winged self-drilling screws. The drill point with wings drives easily through 1.2mm–2.4mm steel without pre-drilling.

Watch the Video to see how easy it is for the builder to install the flooring screws on this mezzanine floor. The Quik Drive system delivers a consistent fixing depth every time you engage a screw, no over or under driven fixings, no bending over or kneeling to fix screws, so no more aching backs or sore knees for the team at Hanham & Philp Contractors. They love being able to work upright and finish off the new floor easier and quicker!
