• Screws
    Safe and Secure
    HECO-Schrauben is a byword for safety and reliability in fastening technology across the globe. While it is a badge HECO wears with pride, it brings responsibilities with it. HECO screws are subject to the most stringent quality testing before they are sent out in the world to forge permanent connections. HECO's view of quality is matched by their stance on environmental protection.

    Herrmann's Timber-Frames Homes is the exclusive importer and distributer of HECO products in North America.

Why PAVATEX?
PAVATEX means comfort
Rooms have their own atmosphere. Once entered, they evoke a sense of comfort. They make you feel welcome, can encourage lounging and create a pleasant working environment. Whether or not one feels protected, comfortable and productive either at home or at work all depends on healthy indoor climate conditions. Wood and its physical properties allow PAVATEX products to make an extraordinary contribution to such a sense of comfort.
