Simpson Strong Tie QDBSD200The Simpson Strong-Tie Quik Drive BSD200 Structural Steel-Decking system has won a Pro Tool Innovation Award in the Drill/Driver Attachments: Collated Driving category.

Quik Drive BSD200 is an auto-feed screw driving system specifically designed to fasten metal decking to steel framing using Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive XL Large-Head Metal screws. Strong-Drive XL screws have been engineered as a 1-for-1 screw replacement option for pins in steel decking. The patented Quik Drive auto-feed mechanism provides hands-free screw advancement, eliminating the need to handle individual screws. Unlike welding and powder actuated tools, no special inspection or certifications are necessary, making the Quik Drive system a convenient alternative to other methods of attaching steel decking. The extension enables standup driving to save time and reduce worker fatigue.

Judges for the Pro Tool Innovation Awards noted, “We love the fact that screw installation reduces the number of inspections we have to arrange. The extension for the Quik Drive BSD200 offering stand up use is a time and back saver. We also like not having to sub-contract a welder or worry about OSHA concerns surrounding powder actuated fastening.”

The Pro Tool Innovation Awards are judged by a panel of professional tradesmen in the electrical, plumbing, MOR and concrete fields as well as general contractors and builders. The Awards seek to recognize the most innovative tools in the residential and commercial construction industry across a wide variety of categories. The Awards were founded by Pro Tool Reviews, an online tool review magazine.
