X-HVB Shear Connectors
The Hilti X-HVB’s are Shear Connectors for composite floor decks. These can be used to achieve composite beam action and resist lateral buckling without the requirement for shear studs.
These are often used as an economical solution when using shear studs is not an option due to onsite conditions. This is because X-HVB shear connectors are shot fired through the composite floor decking unlike shear studs which are stud welded.
