Stainless Steel Nails: Securing Timber
Timber, for many thousands of years, has been used as a building material. This popularity endures and timber-framed buildings and other structures such as decking are seen around the world. When constructing from this precious material, it is essential that all joins are strong and secure; metal nails, used in conjunction with frame ties, are perhaps the most-used method to achieve this joining.
The best choice of material for nails and frame ties is stainless steel. This is due to the many qualities exhibited by the versatile metal, including a strong resistance to corrosion which makes them last many years longer than traditional steel nails. Nails and frame ties made from stainless steel will not suffer from rusting or subsequent failure, ensuring that an attractive aesthetic is maintained throughout the life of the structure and making sure that its integrity is constantly at the optimum level.
Our stainless steel annular ring nails are of industry-standard and are primarily used in the manufacture of timber frame buildings and decking. We offer a wide range of Stainless Steel Annular Ring Shank Nails and additional sizes and grades can be sourced to order. We guarantee to get them to you fast to ensure your project can begin and be completed on time.
