Head Types

Ruifeng can produce a variety of head types of nails. These types of nail heads offer specific features and advantages to meet the diverse needs of construction and woodworking projects, from providing enhanced holding power to facilitating a smooth, finished appearance.

Flat head

 

Flat-headed nails have a flat top and are designed to be driven flush with the surface of the material. This type of nail head provides a smooth, finished appearance and is often used in applications where the nail head should not protrude.

 

 

Clipped head

Clipped head nails are nails with a portion of the head removed, creating a clipped or flattened head. These nails are commonly used in pneumatic nail guns that require nails with a specific head shape to fit properly in the magazine. The clipped head design allows the nails to be collated more closely together, increasing the nail capacity in the magazine and reducing the frequency of reloading. This type of nail is often used in framing and sheathing applications where pneumatic nail guns are employed for efficient and rapid fastening.

 

Offset head

Offset head nails are designed with a head that is positioned off-center from the nail shank.  It is often used in situations where the nail needs to be driven in at an angle or where the head of the nail must be positioned in a specific orientation. The offset head design allows for greater flexibility in fastening, particularly in tight or hard-to-reach spaces where a standard nail head might be difficult to access or drive in at the desired angle. These nails are commonly used in construction and carpentry applications where precise and angled fastening is required.

 

Sinker head

 

Sinker nails have a head that is tapered or designed to be driven below the surface of the material. They are commonly used in applications where the nail head needs to be concealed and the surface finished smoothly, such as in trim and molding installations.

 

 

Checkered head

 

Checkered head nails have a patterned or textured surface on the head, which provides additional grip and holding power. They are often used in applications where slippage of the nail head is a concern, such as in roofing and flooring installations.

 

 

Chuntersunk head

 

Countersunk Head: These nails have a head that is designed to be driven below the surface of the material and then covered with a filler or putty. This type of nail head allows for a smooth, flush finish and is commonly used in finishing work.

 

 

Cup head

 

Cupped head nails have a head that is concave or cup-shaped, allowing them to be easily concealed with wood filler or putty. They are often used in finishing work where a smooth, flush finish is desired.

 

 

 

Finish head

 

Finish nails have a small, barrel-shaped head that is designed to be easily concealed when driven below the surface of the material. They are commonly used in trim work and other finishing applications where a clean, unobtrusive finish is desired.

 

 

Duplex head

 

Duplex nails have two heads, one on top of the other. The upper head is designed to be easily removed after the lower head has been driven in. This type of nail is often used in temporary construction or concrete formwork where the upper head can be extracted for easy removal.

 

 

Dome head

 

Dome head nails with a bright finish are often used in upholstery, including for sofas and other furniture. The bright finish gives these nails a polished and decorative appearance, making them suitable for visible applications where aesthetics are important.

 

 

Diamond head

Diamond head nails are a type of decorative nail with a head that is shaped like a diamond. These nails are often used in upholstery and furniture making to add a decorative touch to the piece. The diamond shape of the head provides an elegant and distinctive look, making it a popular choice for high-end furniture and upholstery projects. Similar to dome head nails, diamond head nails are used to secure upholstery fabric to the frame, and their decorative design adds a touch of sophistication to the finished product.

 

Lettered head

Lettered head nails are a type of nail with a head that is stamped or marked with a letter to indicate the nail size or other characteristics. The letter on the head of the nail provides a quick visual reference for the user, making it easier to identify the nail size or type without needing to measure each nail individually. This can be particularly useful when working with a variety of nail sizes on a project, as it helps ensure the correct nails are used for specific applications.
