Far thinner than head nails, finishing nails are used to add the final touches to lumber-based constructions or fabrications. With a head that is almost imperceptible, these are usually used to secure lumber in places where nail must not be very visible. Finishing nails are ideal for furniture-making, door jambs, mouldings and window frames.

Designed to penetrate hard, non-metal surfaces like concrete, stone and brick, concrete nails are manufactured from a harder, firmer metal than regular wire nails. This is often used to attach lumber to concrete or stone constructions, as well as to mount items to concrete structures.

With its signature screw-like spiral shaft, the zinc nail is used to fasten zinc to lumber, sarking boards, or larths. The shaft is specifically designed with grooves to prevent easy separation of the zinc from the materials to which it is joined.
Hot-Tipped Galvanised Nails
Specially-engineered to withstand conditions such as salt-water (which can cause rusting), hot-tipped galvanised nails are coated with molten zinc during manufacturing to add an extra layer of protection against oxidization. Hot-tipped nails are ideal for outdoor constructions where nails are exposed to moisture and other natural elements.
