Structnail is a steel frame fastener game-changer

Structnail is a steel frame fastener game-changer

Building successfully in steel requires a carefully selected combination of the right products, optimised design, and specialised engineering, making the ICCONS’ Structnail® range of innovative steel frame fasteners a game changer in this space.

Structnail® is a nailing system dedicated for steel frames that eliminates installation inefficiencies on your job by enabling the steel frame construction or install to be more time- effective than conventional installation methods such as screws. 

The Structnail® Gripshank™ SuperSharpy™ branded 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 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.

ICCONS PT2000 proprietary coating ensures warranty compliance for external applications to a category 3 level and all nails are head stamped to ensure brand traceability and quality assurance.

NHS is stocking the ICCONS® Structnail® range at all three branches.
