There is an Aerosmith® fastening system for every application you can think of, and for even applications you can't imagine. RV and horse trailer manufactures trust and depend on Aerosmith fasteners and tools to help them get the job done easily and fast.
"I like it (Aerosmith). I like it a whole lot! It makes my job easier."
This report, issued by ICC Evaluation service Inc cover the use of Aerosmith 3000 series pins to fasten cold-formed steel to normal-weight concrete, sand-lightweight concrete, sand-lightweight concrete filled steel deck panels, concrete masonry units (CMUs) and structural steel substrate materials.
This report, issued by Pei Evaluation Service® covers the use of Aerosmith .145 Series pins for Cement Fiber Siding direct to concrete block (CMU). SurePin® Fasteners are driven hardened steel pins used to attach cement fiber siding (i.e. James Hardie) direct to concrete block.
This report, issued by ICC Evaluation Service, Inc. covers the use of Aerosmith pins for: A) Building components to normal-weight concrete, B) Horizontal Diaphragms, and C) Structural Steel Substrates. The fasteners are used as alternatives to cast-in-place anchors described in IBC Sections 1911 and 1912 for placement in concrete and to the welds and bolts used to attach to steel, described in Sections 2204.1 and 2204.2. The fasteners may also be used where an engineered design is submitted in accordance with IRC Section R301.1.3.
