FAÇADE ATTACHMENT APPLICATION
WHAT DIRECT FASTENING SYSTEM DO I USE FOR FAÇADE ATTACHMENTS?
Hilti offers a medium duty solution commonly used for curtain walls to structural steel.
Our DX 460 MX Powder Actuated Direct Fastening nail gun, when used with the X-U Universal Magazine nail is a quick and cost effective system. With the differentiated design of the knurled ballistic tip as well as the increased shank diameter, this system is fast, hassle free and still it results in higher productivity.
No pre-drilling required, Hilti's powder actuated fasteners such as the X-ENP Nails used with the DX 76 full automatic powder-actuated tool can be used as a heavy duty solution for driving nails on to steel structures.
The ease of this system increases productivity, whilst the loading and outcome is considered to be similar to that of welding.
