Gas Actuated Fasteners are used to attach fixtures and other materials to concrete, steel, and concrete block. Also known as direct fastening, gas actuated fasteners are installed using a specific type of nail gun called a gas-actuated concrete nailer. A gas fuel cell delivers the power of pneumatic tools, but without the hoses and compressors. This saves time, money, and is also much quieter to operate.
Below is an overview of each of the types of gas actuated fasteners we carry. If you’re unsure which is right for your application, contact our product specialists at 888-794-1590. We do special orders, too!
GDP Gas Actuated Concrete Pins come in 10-fastener strips with break-away plastic. The pins are designed for use in A36 and A572 steel, concrete, CMU block, and sand-lightweight concrete over metal deck.
GDPS Gas Actuated Step Shank Pins feature a step-shank pin design. The smaller-diameter tip allows for easier penetration, while the large-diameter upper shank provides more shear resistance.
GW Gas Actuated Washer Pins are 1/2" dome washer pins designed to fasten building components to concrete. They’re suitable for high-volume applications and can be used with common powder-actuated tools for fastening into harder materials when required.
GRH Gas Actuated Rod Hangers are preassembled MEP fasteners designed to secure 1/4" or 3/8” threaded rods to concrete. The versatile GRH assembly consists of a smooth-shank fastener, with a premounted cold-formed steel bracket that features a threaded hole for the hanging rod.
GCL Gas Actuated Conduit Clamps are designed to secure conduit to concrete. These preassembled MEP fasteners are versatile and ideal for high-volume applications using either a gas-actuated concrete nailer or powder-actuated tools.
GCC Gas Actuated Conduit Clips are designed to secure 1/2", 3/4" or 1" conduit to concrete. This versatile preassembled MEP fastener consists of a smooth-shank fastener attached to a conduit clip. They can be installed using gas-actuated or powder-actuated tools depending on the requirements of your application.
