Double awards win for Edgexmetal Clips

National Nail's Camo Edgexmetal Clips have won prizes in two different awards programs: Hardware & Building Supply Dealer (HBS) magazine's 2021 Golden Hammer Awards, and the 2021 Pro Tool Innovation Awards.

Judged by HBS magazine's editorial staff, the Golden Hammer Awards highlight the home improvement industry's best of the best products. Camo Edgexmetal Clips were designed to reduce installation time when fastening grooved deck boards onto metal framing.

Our Camo innovation team is proud to have our Edgexmetal Clips selected as a winner of HBS Dealer's 2021 Golden Hammer Awards, said National Nail CEO W Scott Baker. As more deck builders rely on metal framing, Edgexmetal Clips provide a faster, more efficient clip system that addresses the material and labor shortages faced by contractors today.

The clips also won the 2021 Pro Tool Innovation Award (PTIA) in the Hidden Fastener category. Recognizing innovative construction products, the awards are judged by a panel of general contractors, electricians, carpenters and media professionals.

The 2021 PTIA judges summed up Camo Edgexmetal's top features: Current hidden fasteners for grooved deck installations on metal substructure are slow, hard to use and expensive. Time is money, and now you can save more time with Edgexmetal Clips — one-pass fasteners for installing grooved boards on any 14-18GA metal framing, including Fortress Evolution.

Like Camo Edgex Clips for wood-framed decks, Edgexmetal Clips require no partial installation and allow contractors to line up rows of clips and boards at any angle to efficiently fasten in a single pass. The included Never-Miss™ guide speeds up grooved deck installations. Contractors can also fasten with the Camo Drive™ stand-up fastening tool, and can use the Camo Lever® board-bending and locking tool to line up several rows of deck boards in one turn.

The clips are available in 90ct and 450ct pails, which include T-15 driver bits and the Never-Miss guide. A Camo warranty backs Edgexmetal Clips to match the longevity of the boards and substructure when installed according to Camo guidelines.
