Quick info

SKU: TF1200 Category:

The TrakFast has been the tool of choice for both interior and exterior contractors.

Reliability and Accessibility:

  • Since its introduction in 1991, TrakFast has been the tool of choice for both interior and exterior contractors
  • Fastens all types of track, from standard track to hat channel, deep leg, Z, and J channel
  • The narrow nose & profile allows the tool to reach inside deep leg track (1-5/8″ wide x 2″ high)

Ease of Use and Speed:

  • Tool automatically resets piston. No recoil, tool absorbs shock resulting in less operator fatigue
  • 3 to 5 times faster than powder actuated tools without the need for license
  • The 42-pin magazine helps to reduce load time
  • TrakFast uses a fuel cell, not a load. No need to change or inventory different colored loads

Note 1: ALLOWABLE loads are shown in the LARGE BOLD font, Ultimate loads are shown in smaller italic font. Note 2: Testing conducted in accordance with ICC AC70 & ASTM E1190. Note 3: Safety factors are based on coefficient of variation. In accordance with ICC AC70, the safety factor will be no less than 5. Note 4: Values shown in concrete are for the fastener only. Connected members must be investigated separately. Note 5: Cyclic, fatigue, shock loads, and other design criteria may require a different safety factor. Note 6: Job site testing may be required to determine actual job site values.  Note 7: Minimum edge distance in concrete is 3 inches unless otherwise approved. Note 8: For SI: 1 lbf = 4.448 N, 1 inch = 25.4 mm, 1 ksi = 6.89MPa.
