Pre-Set Fasteners the New Way to Drywall? News & Opinion

Pre-Set Fasteners the New Way to Drywall?

Drywall installation… you either hate it, or you’re really good at it. In either case, Pre-Set Screws and Nails is currently working on a new patent-pending installation process for hanging Vinyl Siding. Using Our Pneumatic/Gas delivery systems will reduce installation time and will fit all thicknesses of insulation, while still giving you the ability to adjust each panel for a perfect fit. It’s a better mousetrap, or at least has all the appearances of being so.


The design of this preset screw device will benefit the consumer in multiple ways. First, the device is designed so that when it penetrates the face paper of the sheetrock, it will not tear the facing of the paper, thereby compromising the strength of the paper. This design allows a clean finish around the device. The face paper will be drawn down into a conical shape between the device and the sheetrock allowing the first point of bond to the stud. The second point of bond occurs as the device’s conical shape inserts into the gypsum causing increased pressure as it advances into the sheetrock. The final bond occurs when the flat-bottomed device contacts the back paper of the sheetrock, and, as the device does not rotate, it will not tear the back paper.

Also, this device would assure the absolute bond to the stud, due to the compression the device provides as the total application is completed, thereby maintaining structural integrity. There will no longer be an opportunity of a void between the sheetrock and the stud allowing an uninsured bond. These 3 bonding points far surpass the traditional way that drywall is applied to a stud, regardless if it is wood or steel. Currently the screw breaks the front of the paper, while weakening its structural integrity. The result of such failure is a weakening of the overall support of the sheetrock.

Additionally, by using the preset screw device, it allows for the easy and effortless removal of the screw that was inserted off the stud, or in error. Currently, when a screw is inserted in error, or you miss a stud, it is very time consuming to remove it. Often times, it strips the sheetrock, and you need to pry it out with perhaps, an alternate tool. With the preset depth device screw, the error of a missed stud is painless. You can simply grab the preset device with your fingers and remove it, as the preset device will never penetrate the sheet rock. The final benefit is protection, the preset depth device allows the consumer to protect their fingers from being sliced by the thread of the screw, by simply holding the preset swivel: instead of the screw and begin inserting it into the drywall with the screw gun.

The preset depth screw device will also be used in application with a self-feeding nail or screw gun, as used by professionals. This preset-depth nail device, as part of an application, can be used in a number of ways. For example, it will be made without the need to spin on the nail, and be molded in one piece, whereas the head is a flush fit for a finished product. These nails will come in a multi continuous stick for rapid fire, air or electric gun, or a coil type application.
