I have to staple many thin aluminum plates to first floor subfloors
(for radiant heat). I do not know the exact guage of the plates, but
they are 0.017" thick according to my caliper.
Will an 18 guage air stapler go through 0.017" thick aluminum? I do
not have an air stapler and would rather not buy one just to experiment
on the aluminum.
Is this metal the really thin stuff, almost like roof flashing? If so, you
may have noise problems on heat up and cool down.
You can either use constant circulation on the system or use thicker plates.
