About our Self-Drilling Screws for Metal

As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of self-drilling screws for metal, our products are developed with years of experience and knowledge of electrician needs. 

Our screws offer faster joining of cable trays and cable trunking etc to ensuring efficiency and reliability on every build. Orbix screws can be used in a wide range of applications from fitting armoured cable cleats and mounting din rails to securing control panels. 

  • No pre-drilling or preparation required - Orbix screws can be drilled and fixed in one smooth operation, simplifying the process, particularly when applying several screws at one time. Studies have shown that our screws can save up to two hours of installation time (view our video below). 
  • The unique shape of our self-drilling screw heads makes sure you avoid snagging and chafing on electrical wires, preventing further damage and safety risks. 
  • Point caps - electricians have the option to utilise point caps alongside our screws to cover the sharp tip of the screw when installed, in an effort to protect cabling during installation.
  • No washers or bolts are required. This eliminates the time consuming aspect of the job. No nuts, spanners or accessory of any kind is required. 
  • Screws can be removed or reused and are guaranteed for the life of the project. 
  • Extra sharp points for maximum driveability.

We offer several varieties of metal screws depending on the size of the metal you are attempting to drill though. 

  • ≤1.5mm - ideal for fixing very thin steel. Also beneficial when repairing electrical sockets and supporting brackets to masonry.
  • 1.6mm-3mm - available in pan head, wafer head, hex head and countersunk head, used for a multitude of purposes, including fixing cleats and clips where standard sizes would be too large. 
  • 3.1mm-12mm - standard sizes suitable for speedy fixing of earth tags to galvanized trunking or boxes.
