Guide

The MultiONE™ screw is a multi-purpose fastener for use in multiple materials such as Softwood, Hardwood, Treated Timbers, Composite boards, Laminated Boards, Brick, Block, Concrete & various metals.

This installation guide is designed to help you get the most of the world’s best fastener.

Installation guide

PLEASE NOTE: Bremick recommends the use of specialised screws for load critical and/or structural applications and/or specialised installations eg. roofing, LVL’s etc. Refer to material suppliers recommended fasteners for any specialised applications.

Head Types 

Select from the following head types based on the primary (top) material being fastened.

Countersunk Truss Head Used where a flush finish is needed e.g. in timber or in a pre-countersunk fitting such as a shelf bracket.

Contour Head

Used when broad holding power &/or a decorative look is required. The underside of the head is flat and ideal for fixing sheet materials or heavier timbers.

Installation Tools

The MultiONE™ can be installed using a Cordless drill or Cordless Impact driver.
Note: An Impact driver is not suitable for all applications. These instructions show tool settings for most common applications.

Driver bits

MultiONE™ screws include a complimentary TORX® compatible drive to optimise torque transfer from the drill driver to the screw.  Always use the correct driver bit to suit the screw diameter (refer Table 1).

‡Embedment Depths

Minimum Embedment is the amount of screw that is embedded into the material that you are fixing to. Refer to Table 2 for the minimum recommended embedment in timber.

§ Clamping Capacity

Clamping capacity is the maximum material thickness that can be fastened to

the base substrate material.

*Notes: 1. Safe load has been calculated using a 4:1 Safety factor. 2. Safe loads are a guideline only and are not guaranteed 3. The Data in Table 1 & 2 represents characteristic data obtained under laboratory conditions and only apply to the Bremick MultiONE™ products. Appropriate safety factors must be applied.

General Advice on installing MultiONE™ screws

Fit screw to the driver bit. Place drill tip at fastening location. Apply moderate to firm pressure depending on the material (see over). Commence drilling for the tip to drill a hole. Maintain firm pressure throughout drilling, slowing down as the screw approaches ‘home’. Do not over tighten once the screw reaches a flush position.

Installing the MultiONE™

MultiONE™ Self Drilling Point The MultiONE™ has an advanced ‘Self Drilling’ Point, designed to drill a hole in the majority of materials (see over) which allows the thread to immediately engage with the materials being fastened.

  1. Select an appropriate screw length in accordance with recommended embedment depths on Table 2.

  2. As the MultiONE™ drills it’s own pilot hole, the risk of splitting timber is dramatically reduced even close to the edge. Pre-drilling &/or pre-countersinking may be required on very rare occasions. Test in an off cut to confirm this. 

  3. In SOFTWOOD, ease back on torque/speed as the screw approaches home in order to avoid overdriving.

  1. Installation technique is similar to hardwood. Gradually increase drill speed as the screw “takes up”.

  1. Select an appropriate screw length in accordance with recommended embedment depths on Table 2.

  2. The MultiONE™ can be used to quickly and efficiently fasten various sheet materials such as fibre cement sheet, metals and acrylic sheet.

  3. To avoid edge break away on soft or brittle materials, back off the speed as the screw nears ‘home’. Do not over tighten.

  1. Select an appropriate screw length in accordance with recommended embedment depths on Table 2.

  2. Using a high speed and firm pressure will reduce heat build up and the material softening.

  3. Apply a lubricant such as WD-40® to the area being drilled to assist in fast penetration.

Installing MultiONE™ (with a pilot hole) The MultiONE™ is suitable for installation in concrete with a pre-drilled pilot hole, (refer Table 2) drilled 20mm deeper than the screw embedment depth. In besser block, a 5mm hole is recommended & in brick or concrete a 6mm hole is required. Use a masonry drill bit with the drill set to hammer action. Clean the pilot hole thoroughly with a pump after drilling to ensure all excess material has been removed.

Installing MultiONE™ (no pilot hole) Install MultiONE™ using moderate speed setting on your cordless drill set to hammer action. A higher torque setting may be required in harder materials. Use of a wall plug in hollow masonry substrates (e.g. common bricks, block work) is recommended as shown on instructional video found above.

MultiONE™ is suitable for fastening into extruded common bricks. However, brick density can vary dramatically. In some instances, the MultiONE™ may be installed without pre-drilling, using a drill set to hammer action. If pilot holes are required, Refer Table 2.

 

Consideration must be given to the fact that some bricks contain voids. A longer length may be required to ensure the screw embeds into the other side of the void.
