We offer more than a few choices for hand drive roofing nails available in various lengths and diameters. Whether you need nails for slate installation, sheet metal fabrication, or even farrier and saddlery work, you'll surely find what you need here at FastenerUSA.
Our Roofing Nails are available in five grades of corrosion resistance including Electro Galvanized, Hot Dipped Galvanized, 304 Grade Stainless Steel, 316 Grade Stainless Steel, and Copper:
Electro Galvanized is best suited for enclosed applications and light exterior outdoor projects where corrosion is not a concern. Electro Galvanization provides a very thin layer of zinc coating with a measure of protection against the elements. Over time these nails may corrode with prolonged exposure to the elements. Not recommended for ACQ Treated Lumber.
ASTM A153-D Hot Dip Galvanized meets and/or exceeds the United States standard for Hot Dip Zinc Mass Coating of ASTM A153 class D Fasteners. HDG grade nails are first cut to length and heads formed from a large spool of brite steel wire rod. Then nails are Hot Dipped into Molten Zinc until a thick uniform coating is achieved across the entire surface of the nail. Next, the nails are either packaged in bulk or collated together into strips or coils. Our HDG Nails meet and or exceed the ASTM A153 Class D Fastener specification. 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.
Copper is an ancient metal. Throughout human history copper has been used because of its natural beauty and its long lasting properties. Copper nails are suited well for all outdoor environments. Recommended for 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.
When choosing nails for slate installation, be sure to choose the right nail length. The correct length should be equal to twice the thickness of the slates plus one inch.
