Re: Sheet Metal Screw Properties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Any luck yet on this?  Based on NDS 2005, the Fyb for screws 0.177" < D < 0.236" is 80,000 psi.  The #10 screw have a diameter, D = 0.190."  Hope this helps.

To All,
I am designing the attachment of wall hung cabinets, (California DSA school job), where the attachment of the cabinets must go through 5/8" drywall and a 1x4 anchor strip, hence there is bending on the sheet metal screw attachment, (plus shear and tension for seismic). Can anyone tell me where I can find the sectional properties, (i.e. net area and section modulus), for #10 sheet metal screws and maybe even a larger size, and the Fy for the screws?
Thanks in advance,
Larry Hauer S.E.
