Nagel, peg

Nails. For most people, this name would cause an unambiguous image of a metal nail with cap, hammer and walls into which this nail can not score "next of kin". And only when you encounter the construction of wooden houses with corrugated or cylindrical timber, you know that nails are

and wood (also called shkantami, pins).

Fear that the wooden house collapsed, present in every uninformed customer. But the builder informed customer knows exactly what it is the safest wooden house against earthquakes, shifts soil ground shaking when driving near heavy equipment at prosidaniyah soil and cracks in foundations. In such circumstances we recommend to build wooden houses with timber. Such conditions are not afraid. Not cracked plaster, not burst slabs, not flies tile wall vibration from passing by near trains. Construction of houses of timber can withstand all these tests, but - without crashing!

Assists and provides stability of forms design is nog - a wooden nail. It permeates several timber log simultaneously and allows them to conduct horizontal displacements.

Wooden Nagel (shkantami, pin) compensates for load operating in bending and shear. This is especially true for raw timber, which is increasingly subjected to deformation. Number of pins used for each meter beam depends on the design wall for each project - different. Nagel does not give the crown anchor or spin on its axis. A few rows of stitched through (2-4 pieces) they are securely fixed vertical wall condition.

In many online resources you will find information that Nagel are metal and wood. Metal Nagel made from pieces of rebar. Their thickness less than wood. Some companies use the pins as nails giant size (200 mm). However, our experience indicates that such attachment crowns between them is only valid when the thickness of beam 10 cm-thick beam more than the use of nails - ridiculous!

We take the liberty even argue that the metal peg only detrimental to the design and can be used only in cases where a wooden peg is not possible to apply (peg first gear to the concrete foundation)!

Wooden pins are made of solid wood (oak, birch, etc.) diameter pins selected by size hole in which drill in timber when laying wreaths. The shape and size of a wooden nail should provide a tight entry (killing the hole) the entire length Nagel through several rows at a time. The longer the peg - the better, but it the harder it will be to score.
In connection with the application for our enterprise CNC holes under nog made in advance to save our customers from additional work on site. We prefer oak pins. Installation of wooden pins is, as we mentioned above, the pre-drilled holes. Making holes on CNC machines ensures their location strictly on an axis perpendicular to the timber and woodworking. This creates an additional advantage for our complete set of parts for self-assembly building. Nagel Humidity should be less than timber or at least it should shrink less than the crown of the timber. This delivers a tight grip Nagel of bars. If the timber is too much reduced he can "hang" on pins and prosest settling at home.

And why in this article we guarded on the use of metal pins? Iron, having a greater heat capacity is the inside source timber condensation, corrosion, and as a consequence - weakened layer of iron, formed brittle layer metllicheskoy rust that prevents cling Nagel for wall timber.

Here are these Nagel - wooden nails!
