Common Nails are a construction nail with a head that is typically 3 to 4 times the diameter of the shank: common nails have larger shanks than box nails of the same size. These nails are typically used in heavier construction applications but can also be used in general purpose nailing or framing projects including Wood Shingles, Siding, Permanent Wood Foundations, Decking applications.
Two types of shanks are available, Smooth shank (a.k.a. plain) and Ring shank (a.k.a. annular thread) Smooth shank is what you expect from a standard nail providing decent holding power. Ring shank nails, on the other hand, dramatically increase holding power. Ring shank has threaded rings that are cut into the shank of the nail helping it grip the wood fibers as it's being driven. Ring shank is much less likely to back-out over time.
Our Common Nails are available in four grades of corrosion resistance including Brite (Non-Galvanized), Hot Dipped Galvanized, 304 Grade Stainless Steel, and 316 Grade Stainless Steel:
Brite (Non-Galvanized) provides no protection against the elements and is best suited for interior or enclosed applications only. If left exposed these nails will corrode over time. Not recommended for ACQ Treated Lumber.
Hot Dip Galvanized are literally dipped into Molten Zinc until a thick uniform coating is achieved across the entire surface of the nail. Hot Dip Galvanized is the highest level of zinc galvanization available. Meets the minimum requirement for ACQ Treated Lumber but is Not Recommended. For ACQ Treated lumber we recommend Stainless Steel.
304 Grade Stainless Steel is best suited for typical outdoor applications to avoid nail corrosion and discoloration. ACQ-treated lumber, redwood, cedar, and acidic or oil-based exotic woods.
316 Grade Stainless Steel is best suited for tropical, seaside, salt water contact applications, or any project near large bodies of water. Recommended for all outdoor applications with ACQ-treated lumber, redwood, cedar, and acidic or oil-based exotic woods where Marine Grade fasteners are needed to avoid unsightly stains, streaks, corrosion and discoloration.
