Can you discuss the difference in diaphragm stiffness when comparing the use of puddle welds vs paf's with the same fastening pattern?
We normally use Vulcraft roofdeck. However, the manual does not include and powder actuated fasteners. Also, what's the requirement for the base metal (min thickness, edge distance) is fasteners are used?
does these PAF give any uplift capacity?
Is there any screws you'd suggest if we need to fasten deck to glulam?
Some of our projects are in high wind locations. Do you have fasteners that can take both shear and tension loads? Do you have tables or formula for that? For example, hypothetically a fastener can take 500 lbs shear only, or 500 lbs tension only. Ho…
For buildings with roof framing of both steel beams and joists with two different support fastener types, how do you recommend engineers ensure that installers are using the correct fastener type in the correct locations?
Do I receive a printable cert after completing PAF webinar on demand?
I was asked to price 2000 3/4" pins and the required load for a power actuated Hilti gun. What is the closest length for concrete pin and what load would I use for existing concrete?
