Abstract

Three test methods were compared as to their suitability for determining the lateral nail resistance of wood-base panel materials: the standard ASTM D1037 method, the American Plywood Association (APA) performance method, and a newly developed method in which a reinforced steel bar replaces the 6d nail. Lateral staple resistance was also measured by a modified Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) test method. Plywood, composite plywood, waferboard, oriented strandboard and hardboard siding were evaluated. Edge distances were 1/2 and 3/8 inch. The steel bar method was the most efficient and reliable test to determine lateral nail resistance.
