Bright Steel

Bright steel nails have a low resistance to corrosion and are designed for use in internal applications or in applications where the nail is not exposed to moisture in service. Ideally the timber moisture content in service should be less than 18%. Typical applications are internal framing, fixing ceiling battens or internal partitioning.


A galvanised finish is designed to increase a nails resistance to corrosion and increase its durability. Galvanised nails are designed to be used in applications where they are likely to be subject to some moisture in service. Typical applications, in addition to those for bright steel nails, are sub floor framing, cavity battens, cladding, decking and fencing.

Stainless Steel

EuroNails branded stainless steel nails are made of high quality Grade 316 stainless steel. This makes them suitable for a wide range of applications, including those noted above, where the nails are subjected to moisture in service and in ground, concrete embedded applications or corrosive coastal conditions.

It is important to take into account a number of factors when deciding which nails suit an application. These factors include timber moisture content, timber preservative used, in service environment and the applicable climate corrosion zone.

For definitive information on the correct nail and fastening selection for any given in service environment, or to confirm the correct and most up to date nail requirements refer to the latest vesion of NZS3604 which is NZS3604:1999 Timber Framed Buildings.
