AVR – Worker safety should be a priority

Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology and other practical strategies to help reduce vibration.

Through many decades of research and development, Hilti has been minimizing power tool vibration using Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) systems. This technology reduces vibration by up to two-thirds compared to conventional tools, allowing them to be used for longer and more comfortably.

Choosing tools with AVR can significantly reduce vibration without compromising performance, making it easier to keep construction workers comfortable and productive.

Hilti AVR works in a number of ways to reduce power tool vibration to a minimum, including:  1. Isolated motor 2, Vibration absorbers 3. Decoupled handles.



Switch to epoxy mortar by using the Hilti injectable chemical anchor systems

Why are injectable epoxy mortars better for post-installed rebar applications?

1. SAFETY: Epoxy exposure can be very dangerous to workers health and injectable epoxy mortar systems reduces the amount of epoxy exposure.

2. STRONGER BOND: Bubbles form in the holes with the epoxy grout method (dip & stick method), bubbles mean less bonding to the structure so less effective, this is not the case with injectable epoxy mortars.

3. SAVE MONEY: Wastage occurs with epoxy grouts with a lot of the epoxy ending up on the floor (or worse on your workers) and wastage left in tins; but with injectable epoxy mortars you use what you need and it is injected straight into the hole. If you are using a cartridge system, it is re-sealable if there is some contents left to use again.

4. FASTER INSTALLATION: Injectable epoxy mortars can be up to 40% faster than using epoxy grouts where you need to mix and stir the two components manually.

5. SHORTER EMBEDMENT DEPTHS: Epoxy grout solutions require deeper embedment depths; with Hilti injectable epoxy mortars a shorter embedment depth is required (Hilti has technical datasheets with our products) - which means you save money when using epoxy mortars. For short concrete slab depths, you cannot use epoxy grouts.


This is the most crucial part of the installation for post-installed rebar work. To improve on the sticking power of the chemical adhesive used the hole needs to be free from dust. Hilti can provide you with the relevant accessories and products to reduce the dust in the hole. To really be productive and safeguard that this is done properly on your site; read about the Hilti SAFESet technology.

Hilti provides both manual and battery-operated dispensers and we do recommend that for the correct installation of the chemical adhesives that a battery-powered dispenser is used, you can read more about this below.

Product selection & information

All Hilti products come with a user manual & operational instruction, you can find this in the box or case. All major languages are available.

You can download the material safety data sheets or operation instructions, see below for some download links.

On request we can also send installation videos for you to watch.

The SafeSet HIT-Z Rod requires no cleaning.        

What is the Hilti SafeSet cleaning method?

Hilti SafeSet requires both a Hilti Hollow Drill Bit and a properly sized Hilti Vacuum to automatically clean the hole as you drill so you can save time by skipping manual brushing (hole cleaning).                                                                                

Battery-powered dispenser 22 volts

Speed up your installation with peace of mind that the correct amount of adhesive is being injected.  Faster, safer & better-quality injection.

Easy injection even at low temperatures      

Fast, easy foil pack loading

High battery capacity (up to 100 x 500 ml )

Automatic pressure release for no mortar wastage

Dose adjustment knob for accurate dispensing  

Improve your workers productivity a lower effort is required with this battery-operated dispenser than a manually triggered dispenser.

Calculation services

Fast and transparent quotes. How much mortar do I need? Let us help.

We have account managers who can visit you on-site or at your office to support with the optimized volume of injectable mortar required for your job.
