Do more with less

A cost-optimized solution for the full range of supports

With Hilti’s seamless MT system, we’ve got almost all your loading scenarios covered. This solution, which comes with corrosion resistance including zinc magnesium coating, is ideal for light utilities such as air ducts and communication cables as well as for cable trays and heavier cable ladders, and even for larger non-critical piping or heavier mechanical equipment. As a result, planning, managing and assembling your metal framing and support structures is easier than ever. In addition, by choosing MT, you can seamlessly and simply combine all your MEP utilities in a single support structure that has been engineered for optimal efficiency. 

Making design simpler

Take the headache out of your planning 

To help streamline design of your supports, Hilti has developed a powerful new range of dedicated software solutions. With PROFIS Modular Supports Engineering, you can create models of your supports, calculate them and export the final solution to 2D and 3D design platforms. Hilti also offers plug-ins for standard structural engineering tools (STAAD.Pro), and plant design modelling tools (Smart 3D). You’ll also have access to BIM/CAD library content and Revit families thus enabling the integration of the MT system design into your current workflows. Meanwhile, Hilti engineers are on hand to provide expert assistance at any time — helping simplify even larger and more complex projects.

Seamless assembly

For faster, safer and easier installation

Installation of MT girders, strut channels and other components is intuitive and seamless. Connect channels to girders with one hand thanks to thread forming bolts that eliminate the need for nuts and washers. To simplify installation, Hilti has also developed innovative Twist-Lock connectors that are inserted into the strut channel with a one-handed “push and twist” motion. When installed, they cut a groove into the channel allowing for rapid and highly accurate placement of components. The Twist-Locks do not slip before final torquing and can be repositioned later. What’s more, in some cases you won’t need connectors at all thanks to direct girder-on-girder or strut-on-girder connectivity. Even when utilizing the full range of MT components, you’ll enjoy a streamlined, system designed to be as multipurpose as possible.

Customized solutions

Cutting, kitting and pre-assembly services

Hilti’s MT system can be cut and assembled on the jobsite with ease. It is completely flexible so that you can make adjustments in the field and save on costly rework — and of course it eliminates the need for welding. Alternately, Hilti can support your project with cutting, kitting and pre-assembly services. Contact us today to find out more.

Designed to last

Cutting-edge corrosion resistance

The MT system is designed to provide optimal corrosion resistance for both indoor and outdoor exposure. For indoor exposure, you’ll benefit from Hilti’s established high-quality solution where profiles are Sendzimir galvanized and connectors and baseplates are electro-galvanized. The outdoor solution combines hot-dip galvanized zinc (for components such as connectors and baseplates) and zinc magnesium (ZM technology) for profiles. ZM profiles conform to the ASTM A1046 and EN 10346 standards. With ZM technology, you’ll enjoy benefits including robustness and longevity, increased environmental friendliness and greater cost optimization. Since most of the steel in modular support structures is within the profiles, leveraging the benefits of ZM in this manner makes sense.
