T4IF

The T4 I-F is a fully automatic tool that shoots up to 1000 shots per hour. With low push down force (4.5kg) – allows users to work faster, easier and with less fatigue. The Start & Go System provides energy saving with “self cut-off” when not used for 1 minute.

SKU: T4IF Category:

FASTEN INSULATION IN ONE STEP WITH RAMSET’S FULLY AUTOMATIC FASTENING SYSTEM

The T4 I-F System is 4 times faster than the traditional stick pin installation method. It allows the installer to attach insulation in one simple step without the use of adhesives or cutting spindle insulation anchors anymore.

ADVANTAGES

  • Saving time and labour cost over the traditional insulation fastening method.
  • Fasten the insulation directly to concrete, hollow block and steel studs. No need to glue and stickpin insulation anchors anymore.
  • The fastening is constant and clean looking.
  • Light weight of 3.6kg means lower operator fatigue.
  • The tool allows you to fasten the insulation in tight spaces through pipes and sprinkler systems.
  • The T4FUEL can shoot approx. 500-750 shots before replacing.
  • The system can be used year round; unlike stick pins, you won’t be restricted by cold temperature or wet surfaces.
  • Operating temperature from -15 C to 50 C
  • Thermal bridging: 99.5% efficiency.
  • 1″ – 6″ insulation pin capacity.
  • Depth of drive adjuster.
  • Fuel and battery gauges.
  • Compact and lightweight lithium ion battery provides 3,000 shots per charge.

THERMAL PERFORMANCE OF BUILDING ENVELOP ASSEMBLIES

In buildings, when insulating material is interrupted by a highly conductive material, thermal bridging takes place. Examples of thermal bridges include steel pins that interrupt the continuity of batt insulation and go through heavily insulated exterior walls. Simply put, thermal bridges occur where differences in material thermal conductivities result in significant lateral heat flow; e.g. heat flowing along the surface of a wall and then flowing through the wall via a steel pin.  The Calculations performed by the Advanced Thermal/Fluids Optimization, Modeling and Simulation (ATOMS) Laboratory, Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto show that the Ramset T4 I-F is over 99% efficient whereas the stick pins can downgrade the efficiency by more than 10%.

These thermal bridges contribute to a multitude of problems, including, but not limited to:

  • Added energy use during heating and cooling seasons
  • Interior surface condensation which leads to:  High humidity levels that can lead to unusual concentrations of airborne contaminants and microbial growth° Rusting issues that can damage the structure
