The revolutionary LIGNOLOC® wooden nails are made from indigenous beech wood and boast a tensile strength similar to aluminium nails.
Their mechanical properties allow the nails to be driven into solid structural timber with the FASCO® LIGNOLOC® pneumatic nailer, without any pre-drilling, to form an inseparable bond with the timber.
LIGNOLOC® wooden nails are shot in pneumatically. This completely eliminates the need for any additional pre-drilling, such as wooden dowels, which in turn saves you time and money.
LIGNOLOC® wooden nails conserve tools and saw blades when post-processing wooden components in prefabricated buildings.
LIGNOLOC® wooden nails do not cause any unattractive wood discolouration or leave any traces of corrosion, such as those left by steel nails.
LIGNOLOC® wooden nails do not act as thermal bridges. This results in better insulation values and improved structural properties.
The special design of the LIGNOLOC® nail tip and the large amount of heat generated by friction when the nail is driven in cause the lignin of the wooden nail to weld with the surrounding wood to form a substance-to-substance bond.
The phenomenon of lignin welding was established in 1998 and has since been verifi ed by BECK in collaboration with scientists at Hamburg University by means of UV-scanning of the cell structure (see illustration).
