For concrete applications large and small, T-nails are the go-to option. From fastening wood and plywood to securely joining furring strips, these versatile nails come in sizes ranging from 3/4″ up to a full 1-1/2″ to get any project done in no time.
Steel-made and strong, the ‘T’-shaped nail features a flat head designed to be punched into concrete with ease. Its pointiness allows it to pierce through the hard surface below while its body provides an impressive anchor for the nail to stay firmly in place.
Nails composed of a T-shaped head and shank come in two distinct varieties – smooth-shank and barbed. The former are more accessible to be pounded into concrete while the latter offer greater staying power.
For inserting a T-nail in concrete, step one involves taking up a hammer drill and crafting a hole that is slightly undersized than the nail. Then the nail has to be gently put in and tapped into position with the help of a hammer. To guarantee the most optimal results, it is advised to employ a nail set for making sure that the concrete’s surface stays level with the nail.
When it comes to projects that need fastening wood to concrete, T-nails can’t be beaten – they are robust and strong, yet quick and simple to install, making them the ideal solution for people looking for a DIY project.
