    HighPro Tools Flooring Nailer Test Data

    WOOD SAMPLE:  Higuera Hardwoods Solid Strand Woven Bamboo

    Strand Bamboo Plank Thickness:  9/16”

     

    Tool:  Model  AS-4090

    1-1/4 x 18ga Staple:  worked 85% of the time without bending

    1-1/2 x 18ga Staple:  worked 60% of the time

     

    Tool:  Model FS-50 (15ga staples):

    2”x 15ga  Staple:  There was no problem with bending or fastener failure.

    There was slight splitting of the tongue if flooring nailer was not positioned flat

     

    Tool:  Model LFN-50 (cleat nailer):

    2” x 16 gauge  “L” cleat: No problem with bending or fastener failure.

    There was slight splitting of the tongue if nailer was not held flat or butt was not seated against flooring plank

     

    We will also be testing the strand bamboo again using a 1-1/2 x 17ga staple that we are producing now. We feel the 17ga staple will have the needed strength and eliminate any tongue breakage.
