Hilti North America, a global provider of innovative tools, technology, and services to the commercial construction industry, introduces the Kwik-X Dual Action Anchor system, the first of its kind on the market, combining the high performance of adhesive anchors with the simplicity of screw anchors.
Reducing multiple steps in the conventional adhesive anchor installation process, Kwik-X reduces costly time and job-site expenses. In fact, the new Kwik-X can reduce installation time by up to 70% and save up to 20% of the total cost of installation when compared to typical adhesive anchoring systems.
Comprised of the convenient Kwik-X pre-portioned adhesive capsule and Kwik HUS-EZ screw anchor, the system provides the necessary performance for safety-critical applications. It reduces the number of steps in the installation process, such as hole cleaning, curing time, and dispensing — eliminating adhesive waste and the need for accessories like brushes, air compressors, and dispensers.
This simplicity results in increased productivity by reducing the risk of human error. Additional features such as the capability to remove and reinstall the anchor in the same borehole help cater to the needs of the installer. These factors help save contractors time and money.
“Contractors can save time and money by reducing the complexity of installation with the Kwik-X,” said Rafael Santos, senior director of the Hilti North America Fastening and Protection Business. “Leading up to a 4x faster installation over traditional adhesive anchors and combined with Hilti’s industry-leading expertise, thereby reducing labor costs and helping deliver peace of mind to a job site.”
