Hilti’s innovative mechanical fastening system for attaching steel deck to bar joist or structural steel provides a reliable and productive solution. Hilti steel deck fastening systems are code compliant alternatives to welds and offer many advantages to the building owner, designer and installer. Frame fastening systems consist of powder-actuated fasteners for attachment of a wide variety of steel deck profiles to structural steel and open web steel joists / bar joists. Sidelap fastening systems consist of screw fasteners for attachment of steel deck panels to adjacent panels.
Hilti steel deck fastening systems have been extensively evaluated and hold all relevant building code approvals and evaluations including ICC-ES, COLA, FM, UL and ABS.

For nestable steel deck profiles, the Hilti Sidelap Connectors (SLC) outperform standard self-drilling screws. With the innovative stitch point design, the SLC removes less deck material allowing better engagement of the screw threads, resulting in higher holding values. The higher performance of the Hilti SLC sidelap connector can allow engineers to optimize the roof deck design by either reducing the deck gauge or reducing the frame fastener pattern.
