How to secure yellow tongue to C channel?

hi all,

trying to secure 9mm yellow tongue to 4mm C channel, which self screwing screw do you suggest?

Re: Securing yellow tongue to C channel

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Grant777. It's terrific to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about securing yellow tongue flooring.

 

You might like to tell our helpful members a little more about your project. Once they better understand what you would like to achieve, I'm sure they'll have plenty of advice to share.

 

I presume this is a steel C channel with a 4mm wall thickness? If so, you should be able to use Winged Self Embedding Metal Screws. They'll drill their clearance hole through the timber and self-tap into the metal channel wall.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
