Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the requirements for steel wire nails suitable for use in the application of gypsum board. Details of construction for a specific assembly to achieve the required fire resistance shall be obtained from reports of fire-resistance tests, engineering evaluations, or listings from recognized fire testing laboratories. Steel Wire, used in the manufacture of nails, shall be of hard-drawn low or medium-low-carbon steel. The nails shall be tested and shall conform to specified values of physical properties such as ductility, and withdrawal resistance.
