With frame screws and frame fixings, you can fix a wooden beam firmly to a stone wall. In the past, expansion bolts were mainly used for this. With frame fixings for heavy constructions and frame screws for less demanding jobs, this is much easier.
What is the difference? Frame fixings and hammer fixings have a fixing for the wall. The frame screws do not require a fixing. These have a special full wire connection. These frame screws are widely used for mounting a wooden beam to the facade, for example when building an extension carport or wooden roof on the facade of your home.

We see these galvanized frame screws more and more. Once tested you will discover how firmly this screw fixes your beam to walls. Wovar supplies frame screws in 3 different types. Namely the flat head version, the cylinder head version and the spherical head version. The frame screws with a flat head and round head design are suitable for aluminum and plastic frames. Frame screws with a cylinder head are especially for wooden frames. The cylinder head sinks nicely into the wood and that leads to a beautiful end result.
When you work with frame screws, it is always necessary to pre-drill. The thickness of your drill depends on the substrate. A 6mm drill bit is sufficient for a stone surface and a 6.5mm drill bit for a concrete surface. The correct screw-in depth is indicated below. For the correct drilling depth, add 10mm to the screw-in depth.
