Joist Hanger Nails in 316 Stainless Steel
Joist hanger nails are used to connect joist hangers to the joists or wood studs they will be supporting. Joist hanger nails are short and heavy gauge nails, providing increased holding power without fully penetrating the wood.
They have a high shear strength to resist forces that make a material's internal faces slide parallel past each other. Storms, hurricanes, and high winds can cause shear stress in materials.
For these reasons, nails are recommended over screws for installing connectors to the decking framework as screws lack the needed shear strength to resist shear stress.
All joist hanger nails in this selection are made of 316 Stainless Steel for superior corrosion resistance. 316 Stainless Steel is well suited for applications in severe, harsh, or marine or saltwater environments. 316 Stainless steel joist hanger nails should only be used with 316 stainless steel joist hangers and framing connectors to maintain the manufacturer's warranty.
