Scott,
 
TEKS screws can be used on thick members. Check with the screw manufacture to match the screw point and thread pitch to the application.

Subject: how thick steel angle ok for self tapping screws?

How thick of a steel angle can #10 or #12 self-tapping screws be connected to?  I have normally seen people use powder driven fasteners for connecting stud clips to steel angles but have recently seen a detail using self-tapping screws.  It seems like it would be pretty labor intensive screwing deflection clips to a ¼" steel angle.

 

Thanks.
