Heavy Wire Staple

Specification Of Heavy Wire Staples

  • The thicker wire gauge of 18 to 20 provides higher strength and rigidity for stapling cardboard, wood panels, and similar materials.
  • The wider crown width of 3/16 to 1/4 inch provides greater gripping area and holding power for thicker and heavier sheets, stacks of papers, and bundles of wires.
  • The longer leg length of 3/4 to 1 1/4 inches allows the staples to penetrate deeper into various substrates, achieving optimum anchorage and stability.

Heavy duty wire staples, also known as fence staples, Compared to fine wire staples, heavy wire staples are designed to fasten heavier materials with their greater strength, holding power, and anchorage.
