The DCP Group depends on reliable fixings to work safely and efficiently.

By specifying the right fixings for different applications, the building contractor can save both time and money.

DeWALT’s new range of anchors, fixings and fastening systems have been popular with the contracting company, which works on drywalling, suspended ceilings and external and internal frameworks.

The products, which are CE Marked, are suitable for a range of concrete and steel construction applications.

C5 Trak-It nailers

DCP has invested in five of DeWALT’s C5 Trak-It gas actuated nailers, using roughly 10,000 pins a month.

The nailer has been developed to provide direct fastening for medium and heavy duty fixing applications.

The lightweight tool has been designed as a small, ergonomic piece of equipment that allows for quick and easy movement.

It can be used for metal track installation into concrete, block or steel.

The DCP Group also uses DeWALT’s Blue-Tip screwbolts in structural steel framing applications
