TurboFast

For securing Timber or MDF to bricks, blocks and concrete

TurboFast is a versatile multi-purpose headless fixing, with great holding power, for securing timber or MDF to bricks, blocks and concrete.

TurboFast fixings have good edge distance characteristics with little tendency to split timber. In line with normal nailing practice, fixings should be kept away from edges and inserted not less than 30mm from ends. For a sound fix, timber should not be less than 19mm thick.

In line with good carpentry practice, we recommend that the fixings are never more than 600mm apart.

Where required, e.g. skirting boards prior to decoration, TurboFasts may be countersunk using a conventional nail punch.

TurboFast fixings can be driven directly through softwood and MDF but a small pilot hole may be necessary through hardwood and thicker softwood.

TurboFasts can be driven directly into aircrete and most light aggregate material but pilot holes must be drilled into hard masonry including brick, stone and concrete.
