Reasons Why Buildings Fall Apart

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Oct 21, 2023 7:15:00 AM

Buildings are designed to stand the test of time, but sometimes, they face challenges from natural forces or structural defects. Understanding the factors that can lead to a building's deterioration is crucial for ensuring the success of your construction projects.

To enhance the durability and stability of your structures, consider the advantages of BECK’s patented diamond-coated fasteners. This innovative diamond coating technology is expertly applied to a range of products, including BECK’s SCRAIL® SUBLOC® PRO and JUMBO strip nails. This coating significantly reduces friction between the fastener and the wood structure, resulting in a stronger grip on the material and fewer fibers being damaged.

The Importance of Using Recyclable Building Materials

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Oct 14, 2023 7:15:00 AM

More and more, people are turning toward sustainable building methods—and it’s not just within the homebuilding industry. Commercial and industrial construction clients are also looking for ways to create more sustainable buildings.

And one of the best ways to do that? It’s through recyclable materials.

In many instances, builders are searching out materials that they can recycle directly into new builds—like timber, for example. For other types of materials, people are choosing options that, while you may not be able to directly recycle them at the end of their useful life, they can be recycled at the industrial level. Metals and concrete are examples of this type of recycling.

Fasteners are included in the push to use recyclable materials—and that’s what makes SCRAIL® nail screw fasteners, developed by BECK, a great choice for sustainable, recyclable builds. In this post, we’re going to show you the importance of recyclable materials, and we’ll show you how SCRAIL® fits into a recyclable building plan.

The Role of Fastener Selection in Ensuring Structural Integrity

Posted by Brett McCutcheon on Aug 18, 2023 10:01:05 AM

When it comes to structural integrity, there are two key components to consider: The actual structural members themselves—like lumber, steel studs, or concrete—and the fasteners that hold it all together. Fasteners are crucial because the wrong fastener can create a weaker structure or one that fails long before it should.

That’s why we’re going to explore how to make the correct fastener choices for different applications. Along the way, we’ll show you many of the fasteners that BECK offers for these purposes.
