Mounting to steel columns and I-beams can be a nuisance. Check out an easier way to mount gang boxes, back boards, camera brackets and more to steel, up to 1/2″ steel. Check out the picture, we installed these screws into an I-beam in our warehouse using a cordless impact driver. These 12-24 (commonly referred to as TEK screws or TEK 5) self drilling screws tend to install better with the extra speed that the cordless impact driver offers. The screws have a 5/16″ head. We have them available in 1-1/4″ and 2″ length with a number 5 point that will handle up to 1/2″ steel. We also have them in a 7/8″ length and a number 4 point, rated for about 1/4″ steel. You will want to have them on hand, they have a ton of uses. Check out our self drilling line of screws and more at ConstructionFastening.Net
