A cost effective fixing for holding down purlins, top plates and trusses

Uses

The “Z” Nail is a cost effective means of holding down purlins to rafters, rafter and joists to plates, joists to beams, etc.

“U” Nails are used where the angle of the “Z” nail is not required, often used to join piles to bearers.

Features

  • “Z” & “U” Nails are self nailing, easy to apply and cost effective.
  • With “Z” Nails, the 85° angle of the nail to the shaft enables the nail to draw thetimbers to each other.

Application

“Z” and “U” Nails fixed in subfloor framing applications must be stainless steel when fixed within 600mm from the ground, (refer Table 4.1 NZS3604:2011)

For installation instructions for “Z” and “U” nails, please refer to the Pryda Builders Guide
