Medium Crown Staples

Medium crown staples are a type of fastener used in various construction and carpentry applications. They are similar to standard crown staples but have a slightly wider crown, which is the flat top part of the staple that contacts the material being fastened. Medium crown staples typically have a crown width ranging from 7/16 inch (11.1 mm) to 1/2 inch (12.7 mm).

These staples are commonly used in tasks such as:

  • Roofing: Medium crown staples are often used to attach roofing felt or underlayment to wooden roof sheathing. They provide a secure and weather-resistant fastening method for these materials.

  • House wrap installation: Medium crown staples are employed in the installation of house wrap, which is a moisture and air barrier that is applied to the exterior of buildings to protect against water and air infiltration.

  • Sheathing and subflooring: These staples are suitable for attaching plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) to wooden framing in construction projects, including sheathing and subflooring applications.

  • Fencing: Medium crown staples are used for attaching wire fencing to wooden posts, making them a popular choice for agricultural and garden fencing projects.

  • General carpentry: These staples can be used for various carpentry and construction tasks where a wider crown provides more holding power than standard staples.

Medium crown staples are available in various lengths and gauges, allowing you to choose the right size for your specific application. It's important to use the appropriate staple length and gauge for the thickness of the materials you are fastening to ensure a secure and durable connection.
