Shot firing to steel and/or concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

particularly on multi storied buildings, is to use a profiled steel floor
deck which is then backed with concrete. The problem is hanging building
services from the deck. There are proprietary hangers which can be used but

(Hilti etc.) can be used to fire a fastener through the hole and into the
Any advice would be very helpful.
