PROFIS Engineering Suite

Now introducing the NEW! Diaphragm Design Module to streamline your metal deck projects

Optimize your fastening pattern and help reduce your design time for your steel decking projects with the newly enhanced Diaphragm Design module, now available in PROFIS Engineering Software Suite to help you reduce labor and materials costs and design more productively.

PROFIS Engineering Suite is a user-friendly, cloud-based application that helps make designing connections easier for everyone.

Application Modules and Features

Anchoring to concrete

Design complex and day-to-day structural baseplate connections

  • Perform analysis of the complete connections including post-installed anchors, baseplate and welds easier
  • More easily model, calculate and generate reports for the complete connection
  • Generate a customized report complete with code references, calculations, product information and images.
  • Create your own templates to help reduce design time on similar projects

Concrete to concrete

Design code compliant post-installed rebar connections

  • Model applications for slab/wall extensions, structural joints, or concrete overlays
  • Various application methods including ACI/CSA development length, lap splices and anchoring to concrete provisions
  • Shear resistance verification at the interface using ACI shear friction or research based methods 
  • Post-installed reinforcing bar design for fire conditions

Anchoring to masonry

Design anchors into masonry

  • Select from multiple masonry types such as grout filled or hollow concrete masonry units and brick. Intuitive built-in templates for anchor layout using a baseplate or ledger angle. Let the software help you with your design, considering the various design parameters using ASD or LRFD loads.
  • Select from multiple sizes and types of brick or concrete masonry units, adjust their layout and define whether grout is present

Concrete over metal deck

Design anchors in the top and the soffit of concrete over metal deck

  • Perform analysis of the complete anchor and baseplate connection into the top of the concrete over metal deck 
  • Design anchors into the soffit or underside of the concrete over metal deck

Diaphragm Design

Design fasteners for metal roof and floor deck

  • Design with multiple mechanical fastener types and welds for metal deck attachment
  • Compare fastening methods side-by-side to select the better fastening solution for your steel deck projects
  • Find the best-suited fastener for your application and utilize the full Hilti system for greater productivity and performance
