Gas-powered insulation fastening: get up to speed!
With the GX-IE fastening tool, you get speed and simplicity straight out of the box. See how to install insulation more quickly and economically than ever.
We hear it on jobsites all the time: the days of installing insulation with drilling and fixing, stick pins or glue are numbered. With the release of the GX-IE gas-actuated insulation fastening tool, it just got even harder to keep using these other slow, fussy methods.
The GX-IE is powered by a gas can and a standard Hilti 12V rechargeable battery. In short, this means far less time lost to re-loading and maintenance. You get over 800 fastenings from each gas can, while the battery lasts for 5000 after just 30 minutes of charging. When you consider that you need around five fasteners per insulation board (depending on the size and type), the GX-IE equips you to get very large areas done without interruption.
MUCH FASTER and cleaner THAN ALTERNATIVE METHODS
We have designed the GX-IE to be more productive, economical and lower maintenance than any insulation fastening method you have used before. Gas-powered insulation fastening is quicker than gluing or stick pins and cleaner than drilling and fixing. This speed and convenience do not come at the expense of versatility – the GX-IE can be used for any insulation type from mineral wool and EPS to PUR, PIR and XPS boards up to 200 mm thick.
Soft to medium-tough concrete and masonry are the ideal substrates for this system. Only for the toughest concrete or steel and ETICS insulation do you need the extra power you can only get from powder-actuated systems. Except for these specific applications, the GX-IE can be your go-to fastener for ceiling, LVF and perimeter wall insulation.
