There are many potential causes of problems which can affect fastener performance. At Rapierstar we offer a bespoke, unique 'Health Check' of your window and door manufacturing usage.

Health Checks are carried out by an experienced Rapierstar Technical Manager, who will carry out an in-depth audit on your current usage of screws, while offering advice on performance, cost effective procurement and effective fabrication criteria including:

  • Reinforcement secure fitting
  • Driver speeds
  • Correct air pressure and compressor regulation
  • Suitable driver bits, regularly changed
  • Unnecessary pre-drilling
  • Stainless Steel options
  • Corrosion awareness

At Rapierstar’s central UK warehouse, we hold over 1 billion screws, quality tested within a unique Technical Centre, so you can be assured of the reliability of Rapierstar branded products.

Additionally, in conjunction with window profile manufacturers, Rapierstar, has developed a range of unique 'Recommended Fixing Manuals' or 'RFMs' for most major profile systems to support customers. 'RFMs' do more than indicate correct fastener types in usage, they can also enable manufacturers and installers to optimise their screw usage, gaining efficiencies and cost savings.

Our aim is to ensure you are using the ideal fixing application and to guarantee that Rapierstar screws are efficient for your manufacturing purpose. We offer credible solutions backed up by a reliable service and will even give you a personal bespoke report on any findings we make for your peace of mind.
