If you are mounting any EMT conduit or BX cable to masonry materials, give these one hole straps a try. Designed for use with Ramset, Hilti and other powder actuated tools, these straps are available in sizes for BX cable, 1/2″,3/4″ and 1″ EMT. The straps are preloaded with a 1″ pin with a .300 head for use in most powder tools offered by Hilit, Ramset and others. Where can you use them? The main application is for poured concrete or metal decking with concrete over the top. I have seen many contractors use them in cinder block or in the horizontal mortar joints of brick as well all though you won’t find pullout data for some of these applications. Pre cast concrete slabs can sometimes be fastened with a Hilti or Ramset tool but they can be very brittle, be ware of post tension with shallow cables. Any time you use a Ramset, Hilti or other powder actuated tool, be safe and follow the manufactures recommendations, starting with lowest power level first. Safety glasses and hearing protection are a given. You may want to make others, especially in an occupied office aware that you will be using a nail gun! Try these great time saving BX/EMT conduit straps with your Hilti, Ramset or other powder actuated tools to save time on your next project.
