The above Safe Working Loads are based upon product tests using four No. Hilti 12mm X-EDNI steel pins fired through holes provided in the top flange of the hangers onto 4mm thick steel plate. Other pins may be used provided similar structural performance is verified by the pin manufacturer. Pin Head size must be sufficient to prevent pull through during loading.
The designer must ensure that the steel support member will support the imposed loads.
Install shot-fired pins in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.
