theyre the jobbies. make sure you get the right head for your drill because its not an average bit.

Another one for concrete screws here. I use the TimCo ones - about £8 for 100. For doors I use 120mm and 100mm for windows.

My masonary bit will go through any reinforcing. You might want to have the drill turning on lower revs when hitting the steel.

i just use 80mm for all. i find that the cordless really struggles if there any longer.

though that is the spax screws. some others ive used seem better

and yes for some reason sds slow throug the reinforcing

You want to get yourself an impact driver.

Check out Big-Alls Ryobi Warehouse! Although I've got the 10.8 Makita which does the job pretty well.

lol i should have added that i did buy an impact driver. yes they do make a difference.

but ive generally found the 80mm screws seem to get a hold good enough. i have however used 100mm before. i guess if the shop has 80's i get em if they have 100's i get em.

but 80's do the job good enough.

this would be into windows made with rehau profiles

I use 100s on windows and 120s on doors. I use Shield so they are 50mm wide. Like you say, 80s are adequate.

Shield is the window profile, manufactured by Synseal.
