Screws & dowels advice

Quick on shelfAttach to the wall or a lamp on the wall blanketInstall? Without the screws and dowels suitable for the particular purpose, this can be a shaky affair. Because depending on the material of the ceilings and walls and the weight of the object to be mounted different mounting materials are required. This is the only way to ensure a secure hold over the long term. For laymen who almost never with Cordless Screwdriverand drillwork, it is not so easy to find the right screws and dowels right away. This guide gives an overview of the most common species.

These dowels must not be missing in any household

For lightweight objects that do not carry heavy loads and are otherwise exposed to stress (for example, mirrors, small wall cabinets or shelves) expansion dowels are the best choice. They are suitable, for example, for fastening in concrete, wood or natural stone and are used in conjunction with a simple wood or chipboard screw. As the name implies, when the screw is screwed in, the anchor spreads apart on two sides, anchoring itself firmly in the drill hole.

Heavier objects require more grip, especially if the ground is not made of a solid structure. This is the case, for example, with aerated concrete. In this scenario, an expansion anchor is suitable which clamps in four directions in the wellbore. If the ground is partly hollow or the building material is unknown, the universal dowel is the best solution. It provides the capabilities of the expansion anchor and also knots into hollow areas of the ground so that it provides maximum support for a variety of uses. The longer the dowels and screws are, the more weight they can usually carry. For example, long universal dowels hold easily sinkor TV shelves,

Plasterboard walls make every home improvement despair, because in them a screw with conventional dowel does not easily stop. To still lampsTo hang pictures or shelves, a plasterboard plug is necessary. It has a self-tapping thread, with which it is screwed with a screwdriver into the plasterboard. If it is firmly seated, the object to be mounted is screwed into the plasterboard plug with a slotted, Phillips or Torx screw. Firm hold is guaranteed even in plasterboard walls. In addition, the following dowels can be useful in and around the house:

– concrete aerator (often used for mounting on exterior walls with soft cellular concrete)
– Liquid dowel (the savior in distress when a borehole is frayed or oversized)

The matching screws to the dowel

Most dowels leave the do-it-yourselfer the freedom to choose their preferred type of screw. It is important, however, that the screw used in the length and diameter corresponds to the hole and the dowel used. In addition, the screw should be resistant to corrosion, depending on the application (inside or outside, in dry or damp rooms). There are other differences with the screw heads. Here one differentiates between:

– flat head
– Linsenkopf
– round head
– countersunk head

In addition, screws differ in the drive head. Here are the choices:

– longitudinal slot
– Phillips Philipps (PH)
– Phillips Pozidriv (PZ)
– Torx

Screws with longitudinal slot are widely used, provide the Tool(Screwdriver or cordless screwdriver) but little support. Phillips screws are better because they allow a good transfer of force to the screw and prevent slipping. Torx screws offer the best power transmission, but they require an additional tool (Torx screwdriver or Torx bits).

Assortments of screws and dowels are available for household use. They usually have a wide selection of dowels in different sizes with the matching screws ready. This saves trouble and time, although the right dowel in the toolboxfinds, but not the right screw is here.
