About Orbix

The Orbix range has been developed to help speed up installation time for electricians – carefully designed for a reliable, efficient connection.

Electricians know that electrical cabling can easily snag on screws and fasteners, or that the screw edges can chafe away at the plastic casing. Not with Orbix self-drilling fasteners. Designed to include a flat top for snag-free installation.

Every Orbix screw has a flat underside too. That gives a larger bearing surface, cuts out any fiddly washers, and means accessories won’t bend either. No preparation, just drill, fix and tighten in one.The Orbix self-tapping screw rangeincludes standard and heavy-duty screws for metalwork, woodscrews and general purpose self-drilling screws for metal/PVC/wood combination installations.

We take a huge amount of pride in the quality of our workmanship, and every single Orbix product is designed and manufactured not only in accordance with the strictest guidelines and regulations, but in accordance with market need. Our customers know they get a product they can stake their reputation on – and we provide full technical specifications and technical product support for total reassurance.
