GX 90-WF features unique safety feature on tool nose to prevent free firing

Hilti has launched the GX 90-WF, a gas-actuated first fix framing nailer with a unique safety sleeve on the tool nose specially developed to minimise accidental free firing to the tool.

The jagged tool nose has been designed for maximum grip when compressing the tool against wood material, but unlike other models the GX 90-WF includes an additional safety sleeve which means that the risk of accidental firing is reduced, increasing safety for the operator.

The long, sharp claws also makes fastenings possible at a tool compression angle of up to 45°, with a protective cap available to avoid damage to specialist surfaces.

Energy is supplied by gas, which will power over 1,000 fixings, and the pack comes with two rechargeable 7.2v Li-Ion batteries for reliable cordless operation.  A new style magazine allows two strips of Hilti nails to be loaded, giving a typical capacity of 75 nails to improve operator efficiency.

The tool is highly suited to interior finishing applications such as fixing timber partitions, flooring, and general wooden framing carried out on retail projects.

A variety of nails in different finishes is available which are fully CE marked and meet the requirements of Eurocode 5 – Code for Structural Timber Buildings.

The tools also come with Hilti Lifetime Service, which gives the purchaser a complete no-cost period of two years covering the tool, batteries and battery charger.
