Flat Head Screws

Whether you’re working with metal, wood or some other substrate, sometimes you’ll need a common-purpose screw that’s easy to find and use without worrying about its quality failing down the road.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more durable screw than one of the many flat head screws available through All Points Fasteners. We specialize in all kinds of fastener solutions, and our staff will help you sort through the options to find the best fit for your project.

How Can You Use Self-Drilling Flat Head Screws?

Our self-drilling flat head screws are one of our most popular products for a good reason. These handy tools are supremely versatile, as you can use them in carpentry, metalworking, roof and insulation installation, sheet metal fastening, furniture assembly and much more:

  • Furniture: You’ll often see flat head screws used in cabinetry, bookcases, stair treads, tables and chairs. You can insert screw caps into the top of the screw to keep its color from contrasting with the fastened material. The flush design makes it easy to cover, paint or conceal and won’t interfere with the final design.
  • Woodwork: Many woodworkers love the flat head screw design, which cuts deep into wood fibers and creates both a high withdrawal resistance and a snag-free surface. A flush finish increases the substrate’s integrity, as it will prevent cracking, splintering and other damage. And not only will the heads lay flush with the material to increase smoothness, but the widely accessible Phillips head is also ideal for making future replacements or repairs. Specific woodwork, like decking and boat docks, relies on the flat head’s flush design to keep users safe from trips or cuts from protruding fasteners.
  • Metalwork: Metal applications gain the same benefits, especially in regards to sheet metal and thin metal siding. Because they are available in different sizes with different shank lengths and threads, you can find self-drilling flat head screws for most metal types and thicknesses.

Benefits of Stainless Steel Flat Head Screws

The benefits of stainless steel flat head screws.

One reason flat head machine screws are ideal for so many applications is because of the stainless steel design. Benefits of stainless steel screws include:

  • Strength and durability: Stainless steel resists corrosion, including rust, and different sizes and types are designed to withstand harsh elements, like rain and extreme temperatures.
  • Cost-efficiency: Although your initial investment likely won’t be as affordable as other screw types, stainless steel screws offer the best value for your investment since they last lifetimes longer than non-stainless steel options. You will save on the cost of frequent replacements, including the labor and time it takes to disassemble and reassemble structures with aging fasteners.
  • Low-maintenance: With stainless steel fasteners, you don’t have to worry about allocating time and resources to regular maintenance and upkeep. Stainless steel doesn’t require special coatings, won’t have scratches you need to buff and are simple to clean without complex equipment or agents.
  • Visual appeal: Stainless steel is a visually appealing option, thanks to its polished shine. Some are even available in less polished and more matte finishes, depending on the coating and manufacturer. You can also cover or paint them to blend in with their surroundings. The best part? You never have to worry about rust infiltrating your design or lessening the value of your equipment or project. In some cases, you can even take stainless steel fasteners to a professional powder coater to apply an even, durable layer of color or pattern that won’t age or wipe off.

What Flat Head Screw Types Do We Offer?

We have more than 50 kinds of stainless steel flat head screws that you can select from. Some are specialized for sheet metal working, while others can easily take on wood, plastic and other materials.

If you’re dealing with metal, you’re in luck — we carry a variety of self-tapping and self-drilling bits. You can puncture different gauges of sheet metal, and the zinc-plated steel of the screw will resist corrosion to maintain its hold for the foreseeable future.

We offer Type A and A/B points for quick piercing. Type A is more suited for thin metals measuring in thickness from .015 to .050. AB combines the sharp end of a Type A point with the increased root thread diameter of a B, which means that it can quickly tap into metals measuring .050 to .200 thick.

We have gauges that run from #4 up to #14 for our sheet metal screws, while other flat head screws typically sit within the #6 to #10 range.
