orbix self tapping metal screwOrbix screws allow electricians to fit electrical fixings faster and more efficiently than ever before. Our self-tapping screws for metal have been designed to reduce installation time to save money. Not only are they time-saving, they’re low profile, with a flat underside to prevent buckling sheet material. They’re cost-effective and are great for a range of different applications such as cable tray installation. They’re perfect for metal-to-metal connections and self-drilling through sheet metal. The Orbix metal screw range includes:

  • Orbix STD is a standard range of No2 Pozi Drive self-drilling carbon steel screws for metalwork, with a wafer head to ensure snag and chafe-free installations.
  • Orbix HD is the tougher range – with No2 Pozi Drive - designed to penetrate steel up to 3.5mm thick – again, no pre-drilling required.
  • Orbix GP self-tapping screws are general purpose fasteners, designed for use with metal, PVC and wood.
  • Orbix TFX general wood screws feature a twin thread and an extra sharp head for faster installation; the multi-woodscrew range can take on PVC and thin steel. 
  • We also produce Orbix electrical point caps for a safer finish on every job, and an Orbix self-tapping screw selection pack that's just handy to have on board for back-up.

The Orbix Advantage

Orbix screws are not just general fixings for the construction industry. They are designed by electricians, for electricians - that’s the concept behind ‘The Orbix Advantage.’ Orbix screws have been carefully designed with common fixing applications in mind with a view to providing an efficient, reliable connection.

Orbix Fasteners are:

  • Time-saving - The Orbix metal screws are self-drilling through steel such as cable tray, unistrut and even RSJ’s. With no predrilling required, no nuts, bolts and spanners and no swapping drill bits, these screws are a real time saver.
  • Snag proof – each screw features the unique ‘Orbix wafer head’, a flat head, which has been designed to prevent snagging by protecting cables.
  • Resistant to buckling - our fasteners are not countersunk and provide a large bearing surface, which prevents buckling, and the need for extra washers.
  • Cost Effective - Orbix fasteners are competitively priced and combine many quality features into each screw to ensure that every screw works every time.
  • Great for a range of applications - The Orbix metal screw range includes standard and heavy-duty screws for metalwork, wood screws and general-purpose self-drilling screws for metal-to-metal combination installations.

That’s not all…

  • Every screw has a sharpened drill point
  • Every screw has a specifically designed thread for maximum performance
  • Every flat head screw is threaded right to the underside of the head so will clamp steel plates together
