Metal Deck Sidelap Connectors

Screw fasteners for attaching steel deck panels together

Ensuring metal deck panels are securely attached to the supporting structural diaphragm is critically important to the deck’s performance and design shear capacity. Traditionally, arc spot puddle welding has been specified for this application, but there are many limitations to welding roof and floor deck panels.

Hilti’s innovative mechanical fastening system for attaching steel deck to bar joist or structural steel beams provides a reliable and productive solution. Mechanical fastening systems are code compliant alternatives to puddle welds that offer many advantages to the building owner, designer and installer. Frame fastening systems consist of powder-actuated fasteners or screw fasteners for attaching a wide variety of steel deck profiles to structural steel and open web steel joists / bar joists.
