FastenMaster Introduces the New FrameFAST

New Fastener Design Enables More PROs to Make Connections 5X Faster

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.
