Nails for Indoor
& Outdoor Applications

Galvanised nails undergo a process that involves coating them with zinc to protect them and act as weatherproofing. 

They should be used with pressure treated wood.
The contents of pressure treated wood will deteriorate

a regular nail.

Use wire nails for untreated wood. most ordinary nails
are coated to aid in sinking, but not for weather.

They will rust in external environments; a galvanized nail will not.

Galvanized nails
are durable and reliable.

They are great for outdoor applications and have an excellent staying power that cling more tightly to the surface they are being nailed into. 

Therefore, they work well for attaching parts of stairs, decks, window frames, house trims, etc. They are low-maintenance
and do not shrink or crack easily, offering greater resistance
to water and abrasion and are also very cost effective when compared to other nails.

NB. Always use eye protection when driving nails, especially galvanized ones, as the coating may chip off and become dangerous.
