A simple fastening solution for all building trades, the new Hilti X-U Universal Fastener (Circle 909) delivers peak performance in both standard- or high-strength concrete and steel base materials. It is suitable for countless demanding applications, including fastening wood, wall ties and installing suspended components to concrete or steel.
With a fully knurled nail tip spanning ¾in. on all fastening lengths, the X-U achieves a reliable hold at reduced penetration depths. The twist design of the knurling results in a “screw” effect when using the nail, which helps ensure a secure hold and high loading capacity on steel. Shorter fasteners and less powerful cartridges can be used, resulting in lower recoil, lower costs and easier use.
