What are the best screws for fixing 9mm MDF to metal?

I am busy fitting out my van and need to attach 9mm MDF to the floor of the van.  What are the best screws to use?

Re: what are the best screws for fixing 9mm mdf to metal

Hello @Meriksen 


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's marvellous to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about what screws to use when fixing 9mm MDF to the floor of the van.


If your floor needs to be totally flat, I suggest using Zenith 8G x 25mm Galvanised Countersunk Head Metal Screws. My only tip is to make sure not to screw too close to the edge of the panel so that it does not strip the MDF material. The other option is Zenith 10G x 22mm Galvanised Wafer Head Metal Screws. This provides a better grip, but the head will be proud of the surface of the MDF.


Are you turning your van into a camper? If you are, please make sure to post an update. I'm sure our members are keen to see how you'll be fitting it out.


Please remember to wear personal protection such as gloves and goggles when drilling into metal.


If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.
