Wood based panels for shear wall and horizontal diaphragms have traditionally been attached to light gauge steel framing using self-drilling, tapping screws. With the introduction of pneumatic nailing systems, wood based panels can now be fastened to steel in a manner similar to which panels have been nailed to wood framing in the past. Information on specifications, selection, and field inspection of pneumatic drive pins is contained in Technical Note 561b. This Technical Note contains procedures for the design of connections using pneumatically driven pins.
