1-2 Inch Metal Fasteners Perfect for Concrete Setup

Concrete nails serve the purpose of securely fastening objects such as wood and metal to concrete, via a unique design that equips them with flat heads, thicker shanks, and longer lengths. This combination of properties makes them efficient at piercing through concrete without bending or shattering.

Attaching wood trim, baseboards, or molding to concrete walls becomes a lot easier with concrete nails. Not only that, but these nails are also great for securing wooden or metal shelves to concrete floors. Before hammering your nail into place, however, make sure to pre-drill a pilot hole. This will make it easier to hit the nail precisely and will also protect your wood from splintering.

When you are dealing with metallic materials, you will likely require a special kind of concrete nail. If it’s something thin, like sheet metal, a traditional concrete nail should suffice; conversely, a sturdier option like a ring shank nail may be better suited for larger items like metal pipes and tubes.

When using nails to secure items into concrete, ensure you employ a hammer with a soft- headed end, for instance, a rubber mallet. This is to prevent any chips or fractures induced onto the head of the nail as it is being inserted.

Experiencing difficulty trying to embed the nail into the concrete? Why not utilize a nail set to your advantage? It is a tiny, pointed contraption that fits neatly over the head of the nail, aiding you in getting it fixated in the concrete.

After you’ve set the tip, you’re ready to complete the task of driving the nail home with your hammer. Fight the urge to just pound away; instead, take care to angle the nail gently so that it stays exactly where you want it to go.

In order to reinsert a nail that has come out, you may opt to drive the nail into a different spot, or even consider using a larger/sturdier type of concrete nail instead.

Once an impalement is all the way completed, a nail set can be used to place the head of the nail further beneath the timber to stop it from dividing the wood when next nails are nailed in.

Prevention is better than a cure: once you complete your project, caulk or putty the nails to keep moisture away and avoid oxidation.
