RE: Hilti X-HVB Shear Connectors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hilti can provide you with test data for the HVB (contact your Hilti field
engineer).  This system is used widely in Europe where site-welding is not
as common as in North America.  It has also been used for retrofitting cast
iron structural systems where welding is not an option.  For an independent
evaluation I recommend that you contact the Steel Construction Institute
http://www.steel-sci.org/ in the UK.

Subject: Hilti X-HVB Shear Connectors


Has anyone else had experience using Hilti X-HVB Shear Connectors in
lieu of Nelson studs in composite slab/beam construction?  We have a
project where the contractor has proposed/requested using them instead
of headed studs.  Is there any reason to not allow the substitution?
Are there any pitfalls to their use?  Any insights will be greatly
appreciated.
