Hilti DX 9 powder-actuated stand-up for metal deck fastening


Increase your productivity with the new fully automatic DX 9-ENP powder-actuated nailer and the new SDT 9 stand-up handle for frame, side lap and edge fastening

In today’s steel construction industry, using corded hand-held tools remains the most common method used for fastening sheets of metal decking panels. Not only it a lengthy process, but from a Health & Safety perspective, it involves work at height and with trailing cables, it presents a serious trip hazard. Not to mention the installers’ posture is compromised every time they bend over to set and fasten the screws. 

At Hilti, we have found a way to make metal deck fastening smarter, safer, faster and more comfortable to work with, allowing you and your operatives to be more productive onsite.

We offer stand-up installation tools and a wide range of collated screws and nails to fasten decking to steel, concrete, metal, bar joists and wood. They cover all typical substructures, trapeze sheet thicknesses and steel strengths.
