Metal Construction's Fasteners of Choice

Dynamic Fastener has been a fixture in the metal building industry for the past 35 years. We supply fasteners and tools to all 50 states while also getting involved with international business. Within our seven warehouses located in Kansas City, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Memphis, St. Louis and St. Paul, we have whatever you need when you order. With more than 9,500 line items, we succeed at this over 90 percent of the time.

Our high quality, professional in-house painting operation enables us to custom match and paint most any screws and rivets with a one or two day lead time. To ensure our customers receive their painted fasteners in one or two days, our market has allowed us to open up other painting facilities in our Kansas City, Chicago and Houston branches.

Our line of D.F self-drilling screws assures our customers will get one of the best products money can buy. D.F screws typically drill in half of the time as compared to all other brands they were tested against.

Dynamic Fastener is excited to introduce new fasteners to the metal construction industry. Our 14x1-1/8" U-Seal T-1 Self Driller was designed to be used with our Dyna-Flash pipe flashings for metal roofs. The T-1 point is best suited for fastening into a metal roof. The extra ¼" of length, compared to the standard 7/8", will better allow for the thickness of the outer ring of the Dyna-Flash and for the necessary sealant that goes under the ring. The fastener is available with our Dyna-Coat 1000 hour salt spray premium coating.

The 12x1-1/4" Stainless T-17 #25 Torx Truss Head (Rounded Head) is similar to our 12x1-1/4" S/S T-17 #25 torx clip screw but is now available with a rounded edge around the outer top rim. The primary market for this screw is when a finished look is needed on our typical clip screw. Applications would include exterior architectural, colored acoustical panels and curtain wall systems that require a stainless steel finished fastener.

The D.F Fenderhead continues to be the fastener of choice when attaching steel to structural steel. Fenderheads are a stout T-5 with a built-in fender washer-like washer face under the head. These extra large T-5's provide many advantages over the common #12 diameter T-5.

1 The screw shank is a #14 diameter vs. the common #12 diameter. The larger #14 diameter is designed to provide better pullout and shear values than the #12 diameter screws.

2 The giant washer face measures 5/8" O.D. It provides optimum pullover values and creates more than 100 percent additional bearing area as compared to the common 7/16" O.D. washer face (.3066 sq. in. vs. .1502 sq. in.).

3 Milled thread reliefs ensure that the threads will tap quickly and reliably every time.

4 The extra stout head of these fasteners measures 37 percent taller than their #12 counterpart. This extra stoutness of the head height allows the screwgun's torque to be more efficiently transferred to the screw's drill tip. It also eliminates the wobble that is frequently experienced when one is starting the drilling process. Usually the operator experiences an increasing amount of wobble-and frustration-when using longer screws; but that problem is eliminated because of the Fenderhead.

Fenderheads are available in lengths of 1-1/2", 2-1/4", 3", 4", 5", 6" and 8". Four inch lengths and under are fully threaded. They are stocked with and without a metal-backed EPDM washer. Fenderheads have a 1,000-hour salt spray premium coating.

Dynamic Fastener also offers other products to complement your metal building needs. Masonry anchors, flashings, safety equipment, power tools, Colorgard and Drop-Stop (brush-grade mastic to repair leaky roofs) are just a few examples.

Dynamic Fastener just released the newest version of its very popular Tool and Fastener Hand Guide. This one-of-a-kind gem provides many answers to common and uncommon issues that arise in the metal building industry. It is a 124 page full color tool that provides clear and concise answers to questions pertaining to fastener applications, engineering data, availability of types, size ranges and fastener materials. In additions to discussing screws and anchors, the Hand Guide provides prices and other useful information relating to: flashings, sealants, insulation tapes, safety equipment, hand tools, power tools and more.
