Structnail is a steel frame fastener game-changer

Structnail is a steel frame fastener game-changer

Building successfully with steel framing requires some tooling changes which will make the transition for your “chippies” easier. In this instance the combination of pneumatic coil nailer and The Structnail® Gripshank™ SuperSharpy™ nails are specifically designed and engineered for installation for a wide range of materials and provide excellent pull-out and shear loads into steel frame sections as thin as 0.55mm.

The combination of the right products, optimised design, and specialised engineering, makes ICCONS’ Structnail® range of innovative steel frame fasteners a game changer in this space. Structnail® is a coil nailing system is dedicated for steel frames that eliminates screw fixing, enabling the steel frame construction or install to be as efficient as nailing to timber frames. 

The engineered ‘super sharp’ point and ‘gripshank’ knurling create an instant fused connection impressively simple and with rapid fire installation speed that is unmatched by traditional screw or riveting systems.

The applications for Structnail® are plentiful and really come into their own with external cladding applications, starting with the building wrap which is simply installed with the nail/washer combination.

Ply bracing, thermal break fastening and external nailing  of the cladding back to the steel frame provides the finished fix with a variety of nail lengths to suit various applications.

Additional other structural steel frame applications include plated lintels and cross bracing support fixing.
