Our TORX® bit in size T-20 is suitable for screwing our HPL façade screws or for fastening our balcony screws with cap nuts. The standard hexagonal bit with a standardised bit size of ¼ inch (converted 6.35mm) fits in all standard bit holders. The hexagonal shape also allows the bit to be clamped directly into the chuck of a drill or cordless screwdriver, if no bit holder is available. The total length of the bit is 25mm.
To prevent the bit from slipping out of the bit holder during screwing, it is provided with a C-ring notch. In addition, the bit is magnetic so that a magnetic bit holder can be used, which also ensures a secure hold of the TORX® bit.
With us you can buy your TORX® bits in any quantity. From a single bit to bulk packaging and benefit from attractive quantity discounts of up to 50%.
Scope of delivery:
- 1 x TORX® bit size T-20
TIP: Do not continue to use a bit if it is damaged. Otherwise, both the screw and the bit may be further damaged.
The TORX bit is excellently suited for fastening our HPL screws with TORX drive, which we offer in various designs, optionally with scratch-resistant head coating for mounting our plastic plates. The bit in the size Tx20 is also suitable for screwing our balcony screws, but for the metric screws with self-locking cap nut a spanner in 8mm size is also required. When screwing our head lacquered screws, make sure that you insert the bit straight and completely into the intended screw drive to avoid damage to the scratch-resistant lacquer.
In case the installation has to be carried out without constraint, as is usually the case with HPL panels or aluminium composite panels for façade cladding, the screws should not exceed the maximum tightening torque when tightened. With our HPL façade screws, no further screwing should take place when the head is resting on the panel, so that the panel has the necessary clearance in the event of thermal expansion. With our balcony screws, the ideal tightening torque is between 2Nm and 4Nm.
TIP: There are handy torque spanners in a small version, which are usually intended for mounting screws on bicycles. These have a hexagonal bit holder and are excellent for balcony screws.
