New truck bed and trailer floor wood to steel fasteners from Simpson Strong-Tie install 26% faster than traditional methods while eliminating the need to predrill.

Simpson Strong-Tie has debuted its new Quik Drive PROHSD Wood-to-Steel solution.

The Quik Drive PROHSD solution consists of a family of auto-feed screw driving systems and wood-to-steel fasteners. 

To the existing PROHSD60 and PROHSD75 Wood-to-Steel systems and Strong-Drive TB Wood-to-Steel screws, Simpson Strong-Tie has added enhanced variations: the PROHSD60M system, the PROHSD75M system, and a new high-performing Strong-Drive TF Wood-to-Steel screw.

Quik Drive PROHSD60M and PROHSD75M systems have been modified with a new nosepiece that provides greater stability when driving the robust Strong-Drive TB and TF Wood-to-Steel fasteners. To enhance the performance of these PROHSD solutions, Simpson Strong-Tie provides a variety of extensions to allow for more ergonomic stand-up driving. A new optional foot step accessory is now available that attaches to the extension and allows for additional pressure to be applied while driving through the steel member.

The PROHSD60M drives the 1 3/4" (45 mm) and 2 3/8" (60 mm) Strong-Drive TB Wood-to-Steel screws and is an ideal solution for applications where wood is installed over steel up to 1/4" thick. For heavier-duty applications where steel member thickness is 1/4" to 15/32", the PROHSD75M and 75 mm 6-lobe drive Strong-Drive TF Wood-to-Steel screws are recommended. The PROHSD75M can also drive the 3" (75 mm) Strong-Drive TB Wood-to-Steel screws into steel up to 1/4" thick.

The TB and TF screws are designed for performance and productivity and install 26% faster than traditional methods while eliminating the need to predrill. The screws also have been designed with a self-driving tip and wings for boring through wood, self-tapping threads that securely fasten into steel, and a flat head with nibs that provides pull-through resistance while easily countersinking into wood surfaces.

Combining the Quik Drive PROHSD60M and PROHSD75M auto-feed tools with Strong-Drive TF and TB Wood-to-Steel fasteners, the solution provides truck bed and trailer floor assemblers with the perfect combination of speed and ease. These Quik Drive systems yield a double productivity punch of improved handling and accuracy with a significant reduction of user fatigue, Simpson Strong-Tie said.

“When it comes to fastening wood to steel, our Quik Drive PROHSD solutions offer builders and manufacturers high quality, high performance and reliability,” said Simpson Strong-Tie Product Manager Brandon Ward. “Designed for user comfort, speed, and ease, these unique solutions eliminate the need for predrilling and improve productivity to help streamline and economize manufacturing processes while strengthening the end product.”
