Pneufast Quality

Pneu-Fast quality

  • Top quality steel manufactured to full gauge to drive better without bending.
  • Rigid strip impregnated with Hi-Bondª resin minimizes flagging and won't come apart in any weather.
  • Hold-Fastª acrylic coating for "bulldog" holding power in all types of wood.
  • New Tri-Coat Hi-Galvª Pro-Nails are superior to hot-dipped galvanized nails and less costly than stainless steel nails for use in all pressure treated lumber including the new ACQ formulations


Pneufast products are packaged in sturdy boxes that are virtually weather-proof and won't fall apart on the job site. Pneu-Fast products exceed ASTM standards for performance.
