Eliminates pre-drilling, greatly reduces chances of splitting.
Simpson Strong-Tie introduces its newest collated fastener, the DHPD hardwood deck screw. It’s specifically designed for hardwood decking, such as fastening IPE to pressure-treated joists, and the DHPD deck screw’s paddle-style drill point eliminates the need to pre-drill holes, saving contractors time.
The screw’s paddle-style drill point not only allows users to skip the pre-drill step, but it greatly reduces their chance of splitting the hardwood.
The screw is able to counter-bore hard material because of its reinforced mid-wings that allow the compact head of the screw to countersink into deck boards for a clean, less-noticeable finish.
The screw is collated to work with the Quik Drive auto-feed screw fastening system, which increases the speed of installation and helps prevent back and knee strain since users can stand while they work. The collated screw strips also help minimize screw waste.
The DHPD hardwood deck screw is made of type 305 stainless steel for premium corrosion resistance. For more information about all of our fasteners and Quik Drive systems, visit
