Triangle Fastener Corp. (TFC) has been granted a patent on its BURR BUSTER® screws by the US Patent and Trademark Office. The Triangle Fastener Corporation now has patent protection on screws that use the BURR BUSTER® thread and point design like the PANEL-TITE® metal-to-wood self-piercing screws. The design produces exceptional performance:
• The point greatly reduces the amount burrs/chips (swarfs) that are caused when the screw penetrates the steel. These chips can damage the sealing washer and rust on the panel.
• The low-angle thread helps eliminate over-driving and improves the resistance to back-out.
TFC, a member of SFS, has 24 locations servicing the commercial construction markets since 1977 with a full line of high-performance fasteners, sealants, flashings, and tools for constructing building envelopes, plus interior applications including steel framing and sheet metal.
