Can anybody tell me if powder actuated driven fasteners like Hilti Fasteners
are allowed to be used in interior shear walls, specifically to attach the
sill or sole plate to the concrete floor slab. Does the Uniform Building Code
allow the use of such fasteners? Any responce to this subject will be greatly
