    If it is floor joist’s you are nailing into 50mm bullet head nails,if it is ply wood flooring and it is glued down as well you can use (24mm nail’s brad gun/T nailer), 30mm bullet head nails

    Nails for anything are usually 3X the width of the board held. Exceptions are frequent especially if the receiving wood is too thin.
