Standards for Nails and screws - Clive Cullen - 10-Oct-2017

Given the issues with steel strength for reinforcing
Are there any requirements or standards for "regular" nails and screws for general construction as per 3604?
There are standards for various bolts and stainless fixings but seemingly not for nails ...

Hi Clive - Table 4.4 in NZS3604 covers off nails and screws, or were you looking for something more specific..?

Hi 'Guest' - just a note that since you were not signed in to the forum when responding,  your message was automatically held in limbo until I came along as moderator to 'approve' your reply (in case you were a Nigerian spammer ) 
Absolutely fine, but logging first before replying is even better as this eliminates the gamble that I might not spot your message for a while  (I think it took me a month to find one message)

The tables in 3604 only cover durability.
What I was wondering is if there are any standards covering the steel grade for strength in a similar way there is for bolts.
Possibly not a problem except until really weak strength steel nails and screws become commonly used and start to fail...
