Orbix screws were designed for electricians by electricians to make electrical fixings easier and quicker than ever before. Designed with common electrical applications in mind and featuring a built-in drill bit that’s always sharp and always the right size, Orbix self-drilling electrical screws save time and money on any type of job. They're a spark of genius.
Electrical cabling can easily snag on traditional screws and fasteners, and the edges of normal screws can chafe away at the plastic casing that protects cables, potentially damaging the wire inside. Not with Orbix electrical fasteners. The flat head ensures snag-free installation, and the low profile design of Orbix screws provides complete peace of mind before, during and after installation.
Every Orbix screw has a flat underside too. This provides a larger bearing surface, helps prevent buckling of accessories and cuts out any fiddly washers – saving you even more time and money. No preparation needed; just drill, fix and tighten in one
Whether you’re fixing metal to metal, metal to wood or you need to screw directly into the wood, Orbix electrical screws are up to the job. The Orbix standard self-drilling screw is perfect for joining cable trays, trunking and cable lids; while Orbix multi-wood screws are perfect for direct fixing into wood or even piercing through PVC or very thin steel into a wood behind. For even greater flexibility, we also offer the Orbix mini-head screw for when space is tight. So whether you’re fastening trunking, joining accessories to control panels, or attaching armoured cable cleats, the Orbix range of self-drilling electrical screws can help you get the job done in record time.

OSC Sales is a British company, founded in 1998 initially to distribute FastenMaster self-drilling fasteners, manufactured in the USA.
After working closing with FastenMaster, we established a gap in the UK market for a comprehensive British made range of first-class corrosion-resistant screws and fasteners made for UK timber sizes. As such, Carpenters Mate was formed and has taken the UK trade market by storm.
In addition, to our Carpenters Mate self-drilling wood screw range, we’re also the face behind Orbix self-tapping metal screws for electricians. Our Orbix electrical screw range is proven to make electrical installations easier and faster, as well as snag free.
In 2013, we became the exclusive importer for the CAMO hidden deck fastening system. The successful brand took the United States by storm, so we thought it was necessary to bring supplies to the UK.
