Twist-Nails are helical fixings that fasten timber battens, frames, wallplates and door linings to brick and block with no need to plug and screw. When fixing to Aircrete (Celeon, Thermalite, Ytong etc.) there is not even a need to pre-drill.
The benefits of using twisted nails is all down to their unique shape. The slim cross section alleviates timber-splitting and offers a secure mechanical interlock anchorage, which exerts no expansive crushing stress unto the brickwork, block or Aircrete. Therefore, loads are evenly spread along the full length of the helical fastener, providing reliability of performance.
Twisted nails are ideal for battening-out when dry-lining or insulating solid walls, fixing door casings and securing timber tile battens to masonry.
