More options for more secure connections

Power-actuated fastening systems are recognized as a safe, acceptable and cost effective method of making quick, repetitive fastenings into various construction base materials such as concrete, steel, masonry and wood.

Our fastening technology uses either powder-actuated cartridges, compressed gas canisters or battery-powered mechanical action to drive fasteners into the base material.

Without the need for external power sources, the Hilti fastening solution is portable, fast and lightweight allowing for reliable fastenings in difficult access areas on today’s construction sites.
