Sidelap screws are for connecting the sidelaps of adjacent deck sheets. The head allows for installation with a standard screw gun. These screws drill through the two layers of steel deck prior to the threads engaging and drawing the sheets together.

Screws can also be used for fastening metal deck sheets to supporting members. Typically, #12 or #14 screws are used for support fasteners. Depending on the total thickness of the steel to be connected, changes the length of the screws needed. Screws are installed using a torque controlled drill for proper installation without overdriving and stripping the screw. Several manufacturers provide “stand up” drilling equipment for easier and faster use.
