Power-actuated fastening systems are recognized as a safe, acceptable, and cost effective method of making fastenings into various base materials such as concrete, steel, and masonry. Designers can utilize our innovative power-actuated fasteners in the design of partition walls, sill plate attachments, ceiling hangers, pipe/conduit hangers, and much more.
Perimeter wall applications as part of curtain walls and bypass balloon framing are common in steel and metal framed structures. Light gauge steel framing and track along the outside perimeter of the building can be fastened directly to steel framing members or concrete slab edges using Hilti powder-actuated fastening solutions. Hilti offers attachments solutions for deflection slip clip connections.

Powder-actuated Façade Attachment
Hilti’s powder actuated fasteners have a differentiated design including a knurled ballistic tip and increased shank diameter that result in higher performance. These fasteners are commonly used to attach medium duty curtain walls to structural steel or concrete at the perimeter of a building. With no pre-drilling required, powder actuated fasteners can increase productivity and are considered an alternative to welding.
