What Are Collated Drywall Screws? 

Collated screws are a type of screw that comes preloaded onto a strip or cartridge, making installation faster and more efficient. 

Instead of having to handle and insert individual screws one by one, collated screws can be fed into a powered screw gun, allowing for quick and easy installation.

Whether it's a strip or coil, collation keeps your screws neatly organised and aligned for efficient, hassle-free installation. No more fumbling with loose screws, or digging through a pile to find the right size - with collated screws, you'll have everything you need at your fingertips.

Here at Materials Market, we offer a wide variety of collated drywall screws suitable for fastening plasterboard to timber and metal studs. 

We stock a great range of both fine and coarse thread-collated plasterboard screws that offer an easier and faster way to create a partition than more traditional methods.

Fine Thread Collated Drywall Screws

Ideal for metal stud work and compatible with all major power tool brands, self-drilling fine thread drywall screws are perfect for fixing plasterboard to a ceiling or wall track system with a maximum thickness of 2mm.

These bugle head countersunk screws are designed specifically for use with metal applications and will sit flush with the plasterboard's surface.

Coarse Thread Collated Drywall Screws

As the name suggests, these screws have a coarse thread that is designed to bite into the soft drywall material, providing a secure hold that prevents the screw from slipping or popping out over time. 

The coarse thread also allows for easier installation, as it requires less force to drive the screw into the drywall.

Collated Screws Vs Uncollated Screws

The contrast between collated and uncollated screws lies not in the structure of the screws, but in how they are gathered. 

Collation is a method that assembles various items (in this case, screws) into one single item or package - literally meaning "to join together."

To make using them more convenient for users, these types of fasteners have been designed to be used with an auto-feed screwdriver, speeding up overall installation. 

Frequently Asked Collated Drywall Screws Questions

What Is A Screw Thread? 

A screw thread is a helical ridge or groove that is wrapped around the outer or inner surface of a cylindrical or conical object, such as a bolt, screw, or nut. 

The thread is designed to match with a corresponding thread on another object so that when the two objects are turned or screwed together, they will become securely fastened.

Self-Threading vs Self-Tapping Screws: What's the Difference?

  • Self-tapping screw: These screws feature a sharp point that can cut its own threads as it's driven into the material. They're designed to be used in materials that are already softer than the screw material, such as wood, plastic, or sheet metal.
  • Self-drilling screw: These screws have a drill bit-like end that can drill its own hole as it's driven into the material. They're designed to be used in harder materials like metals, as they can cut through the material without the need for a pre-drilled hole.

What Is The Difference Between A Fastener & A Fixing?

A fastener joins two formerly separate components together while fixing is more a method of securing an object in place. It refers to the process as opposed to the actual component.

What Is The Black Coating Often Seen on Drywall Screws?

The black phosphate coating that can be seen on a common drywall screw is not just a cosmetic feature, it actually serves a functional purpose. Drywall screws owe their black colour to their phosphate coating which protects the metal from rusting.

This corrosion resistance is most common in coarse threads as they're typically used to apply plasterboard to timber, an application which presents a higher risk of damp and rust.
