Direct Fastening
Powder Actuated Fasteners

Collection:Powder Actuated Fasteners

Powder Actuated Fasteners are used to create strong bonds between fixtures and concrete or steel. Also known as direct fastening, powder actuated fasteners are installed using a specific type of nail gun called a powder-actuated tool. The fastener is driven into the material with speed and precision, making them ideal for large construction projects. Powder-actuated tools are powered by small cartridges which when triggered, create an explosive charge that drives the fastener from the tool and into the surface materials being secured.

Available in a variety of styles for use in many different construction applications, powder actuated fasteners offer an efficient and reliable method for installations into steel and concrete materials.
