Stainless steel finishing nails will never deteriorate or leave black streaks on paneling like other nails can. These are the best fasteners for installing sauna paneling. Using an air nail gun makes installation a breeze, for a clean hidden fastener finish. See all sizes of Sauna Nails here.
Nail guns can be rented from many tool rental shops. These nails should fit most nail guns that can use 34° 15 gauge Stainless Steel finishing nails in 2" lengths. No returns on nails, please be sure the nails will work with equipment before ordering, see Compatibility Guide for nail guns below.
- 2" length nails, 34° clipped head nail cartridges for nailing gun
- 15 gauge nails in bonded 100 nail sticks
- Use for sauna paneling, trim, etc. or other harsh environment fastening
- See Sauna Paneling Installation Diagram
- decimal equivalent of 15 gauge is .069"
Easy nail quantity calculation for your sauna:
- Figure how many paneling boards total in sauna: Typically paneling is installed vertically (up to 7' 6" ceiling) to minimize waste. Find average width of paneling boards and divide that into each wall length to find total quantity of boards for each wall and ceiling. For example a 7' (or 84") wall divided by 4" average board width would be 84 divided by 4 = 21 approx. boards for that wall. Add totals of four walls and ceiling.
- Board quantity multiplied by approx 4 nails per board. Each paneling board is nailed to the header and footer plus 2 horizontal nailer support 2x2's at 1/3 and 2/3 up wall. This should give you a ballpark quantity, usually allow at least 5% more.
- Estimate nail usage for Trim Boards, fastened every couple feet.
