common nails for sheathing

2023-07-04

Steel common nails, often used in sheathing, come in a variety of sizes. Their diameter usually ranges from 3/8 of an inch to the more substantial 2-3 inches. These nails have round or flat heads depending on the need.

Common nails can quickly attach plywood, wood, furring strips, and metal track to framing members with ease. The sharpened points make them ideal for piercing through the timber while hammering the head, which is bigger than the shaft, into the wood without causing it to crack.

From 2-inch, 3/8-inch diameter nails to longer and thicker varieties, common nails come in a host of sizes to suit a variety of needs. The 2-inch variety is most in demand, while the 3/8-inch diameter is the most common.

The length of the nail is decided by how thick the wood or plywood is that needs securing, while the nail’s diameter is decided by the width of the metal track or furring strip being fitted.

The common nail has a head that’s usually circular in shape but can also come in a flat form. Designed with an enlarged head, this nail is able to penetrate the wood without causing splits or fractures.

Common nails are meticulously crafted from hardy steel, a metal composed primarily of low carbon. To ensure durability, the steel undergoes a tempering process which makes it both sturdier and more prone to breakage. Finally, they are given a coating of zinc to reduce the risk of corrosion and rust.

From 3/8-inch to 2-inch dimensions, common nails offer a variety of sizes to meet specific needs. The most prevalent ones are 3/8-inch in diameter and 2-inches long.

A typical array of nails can be found within boxes holding one hundred or even one thousand nails.
