Collated Fasteners are different types of fasteners to be used in tools allowing a rapid application sequence. In other words, you can use a hammer to insert a nail or a screwdriver to screw or unscrew a screw – one by one, one at a time. With a special tool accepting Collated Fasteners you can increase the speed significantly, which for many professional and semi-professional applications make a lot of sense.
The main types of collated fasteners are:
- Nails as Coil Nails or Strip Nails - connected by wire, plastic, or paper
- Staples – reverse U-formed fasteners with two legs, the mostly flat surface is holding the upper piece down, connected by glue
- Pins, Brads, and Finish Nails – similar to nails; usually smaller and connected by glue
- Screws - mainly for drywalls and other high usage applications, connected by plastic.
Each of these categories has many versions or sub-categories. Every brand has its own specialties and offers its own types. For nails and screws the fasteners of different brands are usually interchangeable. For staples and angled finish nails each brand has its own types; each type needs its own special tool. At PREBENA North American Fasteners we specialize in Staples, Brads, and Finish Nails.
