Batten Screws are large diameter screws mostly used in outdoor construction and landscaping projects. Powerful cordless drills are able to drive these big screws in to heavy and wet timbers without predrilling, making for fast building. Batten screws have a bugle countersinking head (think of the brass instrument) for a flush finish and sharp serrations cut on the thread for aggressive drilling. Galvanised coating offers good corrosion protection for outdoor projects.
