Grabber® Releases Plylite®, the Miracle Fastener(TM)
Innovative Product Solves Problem of Fastening Plywood to Light-Gauge Steel
Highland, UT—Grabber® Construction Products, Inc. ("Grabber") has released Plylite®, the Miracle Fastener™. Plylite fasteners attach plywood to 25–20-gauge steel studs the first time, every time.
Fastening plywood to light-gauge steel studs has always been difficult if not impossible. Plylite screws solve that problem. The fastener features a unique point design that easily penetrates plywood and light-gauge metal. But what really sets Plylite apart is the fact that there are no threads immediately behind the point. This feature prevents ride-up as the plywood is attached, so as the fastener is driven, the shank slides through the plywood and the metal stud until the upper threads engage in the stud.
Plylite fasteners are available in three sizes, all of which feature a #2 Phillips flat head.
Successful Plylite applications include plywood to 25–20-gauge steel framing, plywood sheathing to 22-gauge steel deck, dense board to light-gauge steel, slot wall to 25–20-gauge steel studs, abuse board to 25-gauge steel, and OSB and FRP to 25–20-gauge steel studs. Performance data is available upon request.
With Plylite fasteners' threaded points, smooth shanks, and countersinking serrated heads, interior contractors will find fastening plywood to steel studs as easy as hanging gypsum wallboard.
