Senco JoistPro Metal Connector Nailer

Senco® Introduces JoistPro™ 150 and 250 Metal Connector Nailer

Building a home or adding onto a home requires that today’s builder to use alot of metal connectors.

New building codes require us to build and brace our structures  for hurricane force wind, lateral movement and uplift.   These stricter building codes have led the building industry to adopt better and stronger ways of building houses.

Metal connectors, whether it is in the form of a seismic tie,  hurricane rafter tie, joist hanger, or stud plate tie are used to reinforce weaker connections on the building.    The problem with all these metal fasteners is that it takes a ton of time to install them.  

Using a metal connector nailer speeds up your productivity and allows you to easily drive fasteners with pinpoint accuracy and speed.

Senco recently released their JoistPro metal connector nailer that is touted to be both  durable and lightweight.   Two models are available: the JoistPro 150, a dedicated 1-1/2” tool, and the JoistPro 250 for nails up to 2-1/2” long.
