Drywall & Lath Nails
Drywall nails are designed to secure drywall, also known as plasterboard, gypsum or wallboard, to wooden studs. Nails should be hammered into the stud until they are below the surface and the drywall dimples slightly. Use joint compound and tape to cover the indentation and create a smooth finish. Large heads make striking the nail easier, while the head's cupped saucer-head design is easy to conceal.
Drywall nails often feature a ring or barbed shank to give them greater holding power to prevent nails from popping out. Smooth shank variations are coated with phosphate or cement to increase their grip. Finally, a long-diamond point reduces cracking when nailing into drywall. Grip-Rite sheetrock nails are made to conform to ASTM C514 standards. Available in several finishes, and lengths ranging from 1" to 2-1/2", you are sure to find the right nail for the job.
In addition, you'll find blued lath nails for attaching stucco lath netting in lengths from 1" to 1-1/2". As always, our knowledgeable sales representatives are here to help with a competitively-priced quote on bulk non-collated drywall nails.
