Description

Headed shear studs can be directly welded, or through-deck welded, to the steel beam flange after the decking has been installed. 

Description

The Hilti X-HVB shear connector is a mechanically attached shear transfer device for use in composite beam construction as a substitute for through-deck shear studs. 

Benefits

Transmit the horizontal shear force between the concrete and beam connection and are commonly used in the design and construction of composite beams. 

Benefits

• Unlike welded studs, HVBs can be installed to galvanised beams or in areas where a high fire risk exists.

• Fast and simple installation.

• No electrical power source required.
