wood screws can cut their counter-thread into the wood independently. Made of A2 and A4 stainless steel, wood screws are mainly used outdoors. Stainless steel A2 withstands all normal weather conditions, whereas stainless steel A4 withstands permanent influences such as salt water or sea air.
The wood screw is the universal screw among the wood screws. Other screws in the family of wood screws are e.g. facade screws, chipboard screws or terrace construction screws.
