Slim Head Screws are often used to fit into narrow spaces, where raised head screws generally would not fit.
When they have been fastened they are totally flat, therefore offering an aesthetically pleasing finish due to the low profile finish. As they don’t protrude post-fasten, they do not affect the appearance of the application – allowing your application’s aesthetic to continue looking as expected – with minimal to no disruption.
They are ideal for use in equipment or devices that require space-saving or that have limited space to fasten screws, and can often come in different types such as vented, tamper-resistant and more.
Also referred to as Micro Profile Head Screws, these screws are available with a TX 6-Lobe drive, a socket drive, Quadwing Drive or a Tri-Drive and can often be found within industries including robotics and electronics.
Slim Head Screws can also be coloured to match the application or blend into a coloured panel. which aids in helping the screws to stand out as part of a quirky design in applications like drones and robotics, or even colour coding for use in identifying electrical wiring. This negates the need to spray or paint standard screws and these are available in a range of colours.
