Aluminum Nails For Posted Signs
We are often asked if it matters what is used to attach posted signs to trees, etc.
The short answer is YES!
Using the right nails, and using them properly, can greatly increase the durability and life of your signs. Aluminum nails also offer future safety should the trees later be harvested as saws can safely and easily cut through aluminum nails whereas they cannot cut through steel shanked nails. Additionally, Aluminum Signs should never use galvanized nails, as this will create a metal reaction known as galvanic corosion and will leave a nasty streak down the front of yours signs(and can eventually cause the paint to come off).
