Talking etf fasteners

Hey,
im trying to attach Hardiplank to a cement foundation, and the suggested fastener is and ETF fastner. The problem is nobody knows what im talking about. Is there another name, or another type that meets the same purpose? also does it require a special gun. Any help or suggestions on attaching the siding would be helpful
thanks
birch

birch,

What they are telling you is the Brand of the product that is suggested for your application. ET & F pneumatic fasteners used to attach fiber cement siding, manufactured by the James Hardie Building Products, to light gauge steel framing and to concrete masonry units.

This used more in commercial but not often in residential. Most times furring strips are applied with a Hilti and then siding is placed with nails.

ET and F Fastening systems are those that are used in the specific AIR POWERED nailers. You can't use framing nailers for these pins. The pins that are available are used to drive pins into both steel and concrete substrates. At 150 psi. air pressure, this tool will fasten plywood underlaynment to concrete, or attach an OSB roof panel to 3/16 steel members as an example. Air pressure to 120 psi and the use of the Aerico 90 will fasten fiber cement siding to concrete masonry units.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the info Doug! Are theses air guns common, because no one seems to know what the Aerico 90 is. Also is thgere another name or brand of "pin" used or gun to be used, porter cable, dewalt...? I cant find the pins anywhere and no one seems to know anything about them.

what i want to do is bring the siding down from its original level to cover some of the foundation (about 2 feet). I thought about ferring strips, but the foundation is flush w/ the foundation. I thought if i added these strips, there would be a wve going down the house when i reached the sheething.

Any added info would be great
thanks again
