5 Uses for a Hilti Gun

15 May 2017

A Hilti gun, also commonly referred to as a Nail gun, is a specific type of nail gun used within the construction industry. It propels nails with force into hard surfaces so that a hammer isn’t necessary, making construction faster and more efficient. Here are 5 interesting uses for this unique piece of equipment:

  1. Trimming and Skirting 

Hilti guns work perfectly when you need to attach any soft wood to trim work. They can also be used to effectively install baseboards and skirtings.

  1. Furniture 

A Hilti gun is incredibly useful when it comes to furniture manufacture, especially when hardwoods, such as oak, are being used. The guns can be used in the manufacture of everything from closets to wooden tables and more.

  1. Finishing 

Hilti guns are ideal for adding that finishing touch! They are used to attach beadings and mouldings onto furniture to make them more attractive and appealing to the eye.

  1. Strap Fastening 

Metal can be fastened to wood surfaces with the help of a high-velocity Hilti gun. This is known as strap fastening.

  1. Fencing and Framing 

Heavy-duty exterior finishing work is a piece of cake for this handy tool.
