Re: Shot firing to steel and/or concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you are talking about powder actuated fasteners, then try Hilit or
ITW/Ramset or Remington.  They should be able to tell you if their products
can penetrate the steel and adequately embed into the concrete.
