15° BNS Wire Coil

YZ Flat Head Wire Coil
The 2¼” x .113 BNS is the #1 item for subfloor, shear walls, and sheathing!  See IAPMO Report #0133. BNS larger heads are for use in framing nailers only.  « IAPMO #0133

2¼" is our most popular size with IAPMO Approval for Subfloor and Shear Walls of all kinds.    We also have 2½" and 3" if you really want overkill.   We get asked if the installer can skip the glue if they use Ballistic NailScrews®; the answer in NO—please don't skip the glue.   The good news is the glue will not dry faster than you can drive the Ballistic NailScrews®J

2¼" x .113 Pull-out Resistance into Southern Yellow Pine averaged 525 lbs per BNS

Subfloor/Shear Wall Example: Installing a 4' x 8' sheet of OSB on 16" centered joist or studs should take 30-32 Ballistic NailScrews® per sheet to meet code in most USA locations.
