fastening insulation over metal ductwork


The # is 31400. It looks like it take wide crown staples. I suppose the ones I bought from Lowes (It says T50 on the box) are narrow crown.

http://www.thermopan.com/pdf/outwardclincher.pdf

down near the bottom there is a list of staples. Looking for local type retailers as well.

here is Thermopan's wholelsaler locator. I see Johnstone supply is one that is local to me. I think they are nationwide. Punch in your zip code and see what pops up.

Thanks for the info. The closest one in my area is about 22 miles away. Do I have to buy in bulk from them?

How about this one? On the specification, it comes as close as part number 31600. The one I bought is 31400. Will it still work? because I think it says 1/2" wide crown.

I can't answer either question but with that Arrow part number, maybe you can find some locally and give them a shot.

Is there a N.B. Handy near you? They sell Duro Dyne duct work supplies. That is what I use. As far as buying them in bulk... They are cheap as dirt and come in a box of like 500 or more. If that doesn't work try Grainger Industrial Supply.

We don't have it here. I just ordered something online from Lowes for in store pickup. I'm surprised they instantly called and said it's available, because I thought I've gone through all their staples and all I could find was the narrow crown ones. I'll check if this one (and others from Lowes that I haven't checked out) works.

The staples from lows doesn't fit. Then I visited a local building material store, and find a Bostitch one that fits. I didn't went to this store in the first place because my previous experience gave me the impression that they carry a subset of what Lowes does when it comes to things like nails and staples.

You need special clintch stapler and staples for duct insulation.
You can get one at Grainger and the staples cost around $60.00 for the stapler.
