Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FASTENING STEEL FRAMING MEMBERS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE FIXATION D'ELEMENTS D'UNE STRUCTURE EN ACIER
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Various improved methods are provided for fastening two of more steel framing members together with a fastener. In one aspect, the fastening technique employs a fastener (20) having a tip section (26) such that a portion 5 of the tip section (26) extending beyond the underside of the framing members (12, 14) may be outwardly flared, thereby inhibiting removal of the fastener (20) from the framing members (12,14). In another aspect, the fastening technique employs a fastener (40) having a steel tip nose (46) for piercing the framing members (12, 14) and a plastic stem section (44), such that a portion of the 10 stem section (44) extending beyond the underside of the framing members (12, 14) expands, thereby inhibiting removal of the fastener (40) from the framing members (12, 14). In yet another aspect, the fastening technique employs a fastener (60) having a coil section (64) with an elastic characteristic.
(FR)L'invention concerne divers procédés améliorés de fixation d'au moins deux éléments de structure en acier au moyen d'une attache. Selon un mode de réalisation, la technique de fixation utilise une attache (20) pourvue d'une section d'embout (26), de telle manière qu'une portion de la section d'embout (26) s'étendant au-delà de la partie inférieure des éléments de la structure (12, 14) peut être évasée vers l'extérieur, ce qui permet d'empêcher le retrait de l'attache (20) desdits éléments de structure (12, 14). Selon un autre aspect, la technique de fixation utilise une attache (40) pourvue d'une pointe en acier (46) pour percer les éléments de la structure (12, 14) et d'une section de tige en plastique (44), de telle manière qu'une portion de la section de la tige (44) s'étendant au-delà de la partie inférieure des éléments de la structure (12, 14) se dilate, ce qui permet d'empêcher le retrait de l'attache (40) des éléments de structure (12, 14). Selon un autre aspect, la technique d'attache utilise une attache (60) pourvue d'une section en forme de bobine (64) dotée d'une caractéristique élastique.
