Hot Dipped Galvanized Bulk Hand Drive Nails for Roofing, Siding, Fencing, Siding, Framing, Joist Hangers
We take Hot Dipped Galvanizing very seriously. We do not believe in cutting corners when it comes to quality. For Hot Dip Galvanized Nails the process is simple but so often neglected by others. The name “Hot Dipped Galvanized” describes the process by which the fastener is galvanized. For a nail to be called “Hot Dip” the nail must literally be dipped into a vat of molten zinc. If it’s not dipped in zinc then it’s not Hot Dip. It’s something else.
A word of caution
Be on the lookout for imposters who claim to be hot dip but are instead some form of ceramic tri-laminate coated proprietary galvanization. If you’re buying Hot Dip Galvanized nails ask questions to make sure you’re getting true hot dip nails.
On this page you will find five different types of Hot Dip Hand Drive Nails.
Box Nails are used for typical general purpose construction. One could use these for just about any wood to wood fastening application including framing, decking, siding, fencing, box and crate assembly.
Common Nails are more larger diameter than their box nail cousins and are made for heavy wood framing construction. Applications include Heavy Timber attachment, Structural Framing, Deck Framing, Permanent Wood Foundations.
Metal Connector Joist Hanger Nails are specialty nails made specifically for metal hardware connection fastening. Some examples of use include Joist hangers, foundation anchors, seismic and hurricane straps and ties, post caps and bases and other metal framing hardware.
Roofing Nails are specialty nails made specifically for Roofing. The larger 3/8" diameter head covers more surface area and increases holding power. Hot dip roofing nails are better suited for roofing materials with longer material warranties. All our hot dip roofing nails are 11 gauge (.120" diameter) Applications include Asphalt shingles, Slate roofing, clay roofing tile, cement roofing tile, cement board siding, sheet metal fabrication.
Siding Nails are specialty nails made specifically for Siding. Smaller head diameters work well with wood siding and allows the nail to be countersunk or driven flush without crushing surrounding wood. Slender shanks minimize splitting. Applications include Cedar, Redwood, and Cypress Wood Siding, also Fiber Cement Siding.
All our ASTM A153-D Hot Dip Nails meet and/or exceed the United States standard for Hot Dip Zinc Mass Coating of ASTM A153 class D Fasteners.
