Deckfast® Stainless 305 and 316

Stainless Steel Screws for Hardwood, Cedar, Redwood and Pressure Treated Decking

Deckfast® Stainless 305 and 316 screws for hardwood, cedar, redwood and pressure treated decking are extremely versatile fasteners. These premium quality deck screws feature extra deep star drive recesses, Type 17 auger tips, trim heads or reinforced flat heads, and are available in Grades 305 and 316 stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance.

Smart-Bit® compatible: Deckfast Stainless screws match the profiles of Smart-Bit Pre-drilling and Countersinking Tools. For materials that require pre-drilling, especially hardwoods, this product combination makes it easy to achieve a clean and professional finish.

Applications and Usage Notes

Pressure Treated Decking: Flat head Deckfast Stainless screws are recommended.

Hardwood Decking: Trim head Deckfast Stainless screws are recommended.

Pre-drilling: Pre-drilling is usually required for hardwoods. Smart-Bit Pre-drilling and Countersinking Tools are specifically designed to work together with Deckfast Stainless (as well as Starborn’s Headcote 305 and 316 deck screws) to create the perfect hole and perfect fit every time.

Perfectly Set Fasteners: To achieve a clean and uniform appearance, with screws set at a perfect and consistent depth below the surface, use the new Smart-Bit Depth Setter.

Corrosion Information: Approved for use with ACQ treated lumber. For applications exposed to salt air, near large bodies of water, swimming pools or other areas where corrosion is more likely to occur, always use Grade 316 stainless steel screws (like Deckfast® Stainless 316 or Headcote® 316). For more detailed information about corrosion, see the corrosion information page.
