If you are involved in construction work of some description, whether professionally or as a hobby, it is likely that you will use a nail gun. Thanks to these tools, you can now complete a job in just minutes that would have took hours in the past. This is because nail guns use collated stainless steel nails, which are highly beneficial to all construction operations. Unfortunately, very few people understand just how many benefits these nails have and how they have actually changed and modernized the construction industry.
The Benefits of Collated Stainless Steel Nails
The benefits of using collated stainless steel nails are so vast that it would be almost impossible to name them all. The biggest one, however, is how much more efficient they allow the person who has to nail something to become. There is no longer any need to hold a nail down by hand, with the risk of hitting the thumb or other fingers. Additionally, there is no more missing the nail and accidentally destroying the material surrounding it. Indeed, lining up with your target becomes an absolute breeze. All you need to do is point to where you want the nail to go and pull the trigger.
Additionally, it is a great way to ensure the construction of the nail keeps its integrity. Nails will never rust because they are made from stainless steel. Hence, they are much more durable than conventional nails, which are often made of simple iron. You will probably have taken old things apart at some point and spotted the old rusty nails. No longer will this be an issue, which also means you will no longer see corrosion stains on anything you have nailed together.
Then, there is the fact that you can get these nails in all sorts of sizes. This means they can be used for a huge range of different tasks. Sure, they are somewhat more expensive to purchase, but when you consider that you will never have to replace them and that they won’t cause any damage to the item in which they are nailed, the savings really make themselves.
The only thing to be careful about is that you make sure you purchase the right nails for your nail gun. It may be tempting to simply purchase the cheapest model that at the very least has the right size, but you may not get the most out of your tool that way. Just like with electronic equipment there are so called “OEM” products, meaning the manufacturer endorses them, the same is true for nails and nail guns. A cheap nail will work in any nail gun, but the gun will perform the best if it is used with nails that are made for purpose. This is because the pressure that is emitted by the gun is calculated specifically for those brands of nails, and not for other ones that may need more or less pressure overall.
