We carry bright nails in four different sizes. Our 50mm Smooth Shank nails also come in a pack of 2000. For greater rigidity and strength against humidity, we recommend using Stanley Bostitch Wire Weld Framing Nailers on this particular type of nail.
The Timco Bright Cut Clasp Nails are more traditional (they were a standard building tool in colonial America), but you may need to look up how to drive them in properly.
Many people don't know that there is more than one type of nail, or even that not every type of nail will work both indoors and outdoors. Bright nails have no coating, which gives them a brighter appearance. If a nail has no coating, it will not work at all for outdoor construction.
Bright nails get their name from their bright surface compared to other nails. That's because they have no protective coating to slow rusting from salt or humidity exposure.
Using bright nails on an outdoor project will make them corrode faster and eventually break. It could also leave nasty rust marks on walls, and you might have an expensive callback on your hands. You might coat the nails with zinc for extra protection, but you might be better off getting stronger nails in that regard.
