Durock Fasteners

I've been lurking here since I read John's book and have searched the forums before asking this question.......installing about 800sq feet of 1/2" durock this weekend and would like to nail it rather than screw it. Can I use these as fasteners:

STANLEY-BOSTITCH
1-1/2" Pneumatic Coil Roofing Nails

If not can someone suggest something else I can use and shoot out of a bostitch roof nailer? My lumber yard suggested I use the above nails. You can see the specs by searching on the Lowes website by pasting in "
1-1/2" Pneumatic Coil Roofing Nails"....I tried to post the url but that's not allowed


Any help is appreciated.

From the Durock installation guide:

Quote:
Fasteners
Cement board is readily applied
over framing with 1-1/2 hotdipped
galvanized roofing nails
or 1-1/4 DUROCK™ Brand Wood
Screws. With steel framing
use 1-1/4 DUROCK™ Brand
Steel Screws.
You have to use a Porter cable nailer though.
Don't forget to use pooky, and tape your seams.

Welcome, John.

Maybe if you give us a hint where you will be installing this CBU the issue of correct pookey would become more clear. Or, knowing Royce, maybe not.

But wherever you decide to pewt the stuff, you either need to use the manufacturer's approved fasteners or take your chances on your own choice. If you contact the manufacturer and tell them what you have in mind, they might sanction it. Phone call's cheap.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Just a term for us guys...."Pooky" is thinset.

Maybe over kill, but I only use 2" HD Galvanized screws on Durock...6" on edge and 8" in field. => Solid.

Welcome aboard!
