AGAWAM, Mass., Jan. 2024 – FastenMaster introduces the new FrameFAST fastener, now featuring the patented TORX® ttap® Drive system. This new design empowers PROs with the choice of using a standard impact driver or the award winning FrameFAST tool. FrameFAST replaces many commonly used hurricane ties, installing 5X faster without the need for compressors, nailers, and hoses. The new 50pc box and 250pc bucket will include a free alignment guide ensuring a code compliant connection and TORX® ttap® driver bits that deliver a wobble-free drive.
“In 2011, FastenMaster began replacing hurricane ties with structural screws and in 2017 we introduced FrameFAST, the first system specifically designed to replace hurricane ties.” said Nikki Long, Structural Business Unit Director. “Our latest innovation delivers FrameFAST to more PROs without the need for a specific tool while increasing productivity for home builders, remodelers and deck builders.”
The new fastener is certified for continuous load path applications including securing roof trusses, wall studs and plates, in addition to attaching deck joists to carrying beams. Backed by FastenMaster’s exclusive ProjectLife Guarantee™, FrameFAST is guaranteed for the life of the project and is approved for use in ACQ pressure treated wood.
