A: Hello, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. The SCN smooth-shank connector nail is not designed to be used for roofing applications. Typically roofing nails are made of stainless steel where as these SCN nails are hot-dipped galvanized. We cannot say these would be okay to be used as an alternative. If you wish to discuss this further please call us at (800) 999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.
A: Depends on type of shingle...for regular shingles no. For wood or tile maybe.
A: Hello CCGA, this is Ricardo with Simpson. In regards to substituting the nails for our connectors with the SD Connector Screws, we do offer substitutions for certain hangers, post caps and bases, and straps. In order to see if the specific connector you are installing is approved for a screw substitution, please contact our Technical Support Team at 800.999.5099.
A: Yes they are. We use screws in place of nails when possible. Depending on the application of course.
A: They are for use with a hammer or palm nailer.
A: No you can’t use in a nail gun. Only hammer.
A: Hello Jimbo, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. We do have a collated version of these nails that can be used as a power-driven alternative. For this size in particular you could take a look at models N10HDGPT500 or N10HDGPT3000. The difference between the two is the box quantity. If you have any other questions feel free to call us at (800) 999-5099. We look forward to speaking with you.
A: There is a nailgun with a feature that locates the nailgun properly so the nail strikes the hole location. If this is a one time use or you will use infrequently and don’t want to buy one more tool, use a standard hammer. I don’t advise using a standard nailgun
A: Of course, this will vary depending on the nail manufacturer, but the following website will give you a pretty good estimate: https://www.treeisland.com/sites/default/files/documents/brochures-spec-sheets/Average%20nails%20per%20pound.pdf
