Consumer information and warning

Important information according to EU Construction Products Regulation BauPVO from 24.02.2021

According to Article 11, Paragraph 7 of Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 (EU Construction Products Regulation or EU-BauPVO),
we are obliged as a manufacturer to provide the following information:

If you have received our screws with the article designations

  • FRS ZK TX30 7,5xL
  • FRS PH TX30 7,5xL
  • FRS SK TX30 7,5xL
  • FRS ZK TX25 7,5xL
  • Blue Power 7,4xL

please note, 

that the above-mentioned screws may only be used for mounting window frames and for fastening such wooden substructures to concrete or masonry that are only used in subordinate private small buildings. The decisive factor for this application is the anchoring in the masonry.


In the declaration of performance DoP-EN14592-09-2015, the characteristic pull-out parameter fax,k and the characteristic yield moment My,k have been declared clearly too high. When designing according to EN 1995-1-1 (Eurocode 5) for the use of the screws in load-bearing timber connections with these declared performances, the stability of individual timber components and, as a result, of a timber structure may be endangered. This may result in hazards for persons, for example, due to falling parts of timber structures.


Before using the screws with the article designations 

  • FRS ZK TX30 7,5xL
  • FRS PH TX30 7,5xL
  • FRS SK TX30 7,5xL
  • FRS ZK TX25 7,5xL
  • Blue Power 7,4xL

for timber connections in load-bearing timber structures is therefore warned!

If you have already used these screws in load-bearing timber construction, reinforcement and/or modification of the construction may be necessary. If you are affected, please contact us so that we can inform you about the performance of the screws for a re-dimensioning.

The declaration of performance indicated on the CE marking DoP-EN14592-09-2015 is no longer valid for the screws mentioned.

If you do not wish to use these screws for the aforementioned application for mounting window frames and for fastening such wooden substructures to concrete or masonry, you can also return them to us. In this case, please contact us.
