Modular Support System vs. Welding

Helping to improve productivity, flexibility, and safety compared to traditional methods

Hilti's modular designs can be pre-assembled or cut in the field more quickly than welded systems. Completely flexible and adjustable on the jobsite Hilti's modular support systems offers a cost and time-saving solution by helping reduce rework.

Modular Support Systems vs. Welded Steel

40 %

Weight savings
Modular support structures can reduce the system weight by up to 40%. That's 40% less material to ship and cart around the jobsite.

8 X

Fabrication and assembly of modular systems can be significantly faster than comparable welded systems.

218 LBS

CO2 Reduction
From weight reduction to corrosion protection, modular supports are a modern solution for your secondary supports applications.

25 %

Cost savings
Modular systems reduce costs by helping to save up to 25% on install time, labor, and weight.
