After LIGNOLOC received the German general construction technique permit in 2020, the new wooden nail system with head tailored specifically for façade applications will be launched in 2022.

With its latest product innovation, the Austria-based fastening pioneer Beck continues the 360o approach of its wooden nail system. After months of work and fine-tuning, the LIGNOLOC wooden nail with head has reached market maturity. The most recent version of the LIGNOLOC F60 pneumatic nailer has already been adapted to accept the nails with head, and is available now.

The main target application is horizontal and vertical wood cladding. The nail with head allows exterior cladding panels to be held securely in position. It has a blunt anti-splitting point and is suitable for the most common softwood façades as well as a wide range of other applications, both indoors and outdoors, such as privacy screens, garden sheds, gazebos, room dividers, among others.

LIGNOLOC is a collated wooden nail for future-oriented use in industrial production and ecological wood processing. Made with central European beech wood, the design of the LIGNOLOC nail point and the large amount of heat generated by friction when the nail is driven in at a high speed will cause the lignin of the wooden nail to weld with the surrounding wood to form a substance-to-substance bond.
