BOTTOM PLATE FIXING

Fastening systems for bottom plate application

DX 2

With direct fastening technology, Hilti offers you a quick and hassle free bottom plate fixing solution!

Using either our DX 460 or DX 2 Powder-actuated tools, you can choose either one of our direct fastening nails to use. 

Our X-C (Concrete) and X-U (universal) nails can be used with a washer to limit the penetration in soft material and to guarantee to pull over load. 

WHICH DIRECT FASTENING SYSTEM DO I USE FOR BOTTOM PLATE APPLICATIONS

We rigorously test our X-C and X-U nail system to see how they perform within this application. They are all code and regulation compliant.

Our X-C concrete nail has a cut point and primarily used for concrete with a strength less than or equal to 45 MPA.

The X-C nail comes as a collated strip of 10 nails which can be fired with our DX 460-MX Magazine Powder-actuated direct fastening tool.

They are also available in single fire for use in single fire tools such as our DX 2 Tool.

alternatively you could use X-CF 72 P8 S23 Nail with preattached washer with our DX 2 & DX 460 F8 Single fire nail guns for a seamless and quick application.  

Our X-U fully knurled pin is a premium ballistic point nail with a seismic rating approval with an ICC test report. 

If you are looking at firing into hardened concrete or steel, this is the nail you will need!

The X-U nail also comes as a collated strip of 10 nails for use in our DX 460-MX Magazine direct fastening tool or if it is single fire you need, there is as a single nail option also.

You could also minimise pull through with the added R23 Washer when used within this application. Washers can be used with our DX 460 MX with the added washer holder attachment.
