Why partner with SFS for metal building fastener solutions?
Not all metal-to-metal screws are created equal, and they certainly don’t have universal application. Utilizing the right fastener is the difference between unfailing attachment strength and dangerous deterioration.
Below are six reasons to utilize SFS screws and services for your next metal building project.
An extensive inventory that covers broad metal-to-metal fastening needsOur generous selection allows you to find the screw with the best-suited material, strength, thread pitch, washer design, and drill point to produce optimal results. Whether you need fasteners for dissimilar metal connections, stitch applications, or nested purlins, we provide targeted solutions from which to choose.
Narrow down your options with our easy-to-follow metal compatibility charts and structural element guides. Plus, our product managers will gladly provide one-on-one guidance on which fasteners complement your designated substrate, load-bearing requirements, anticipated exposure to moisture and pollution, and budget.
We offer premium products to fulfill demanding requirementsOur inventory includes screws built to endure the most rigorous conditions, including heavy clamping loads, maximum drill speeds, and direct exposure to uninterrupted corrosive elements. SFS achieves this fortitude through precision cold forged manufacturing and superior metals like 300-series stainless steel.
Trust SFS-originated product lines like the ZAC®, MAC™, Flex5, SX, and Bi-Met 300 to equip you with the necessary fortitude and rust-resistance. Our premium fasteners come with various lengths, washer options, and configurations to satisfy a full range of applications.
SFS can customize metal building fasteners and servicesIf our existing product lines don’t align with your project requirements, SFS can develop new prototypes. This process can involve drawings from our engineers, and access to our manufacturing and testing facilities. Our product managers and engineers will work closely to create a solution reflective of your existing resources, budget, timeline, and intended application.
Our VistaCoat® Premium System provides color matching and additional resilienceCustomers can visually match screws to the metal substrate with the VistaCoat® Premium System, ultimately enhancing the aesthetic with paint that won’t fade. What’s more, VistaCoat® adds yet another layer of protection against damaging corrosion, UV rays, and general impact. The system has 48 standard colors that closely match most industry metal panel colors, and we can custom match to meet project specs. By having SFS color-match the screws rather than passing the task to your builders, you ultimately save both time and labor costs.
