The OMG X-Wing is a toggle fastener for attaching insulation to a variety of decks including gypsum, cementitious wood fiber, and lightweight concrete decks. The X-Wing is designed specifically for use with an OMG Extra Heavy Duty (XHD) fastener and a standard 3-inch insulation plate, both sold separately.
The OMG X-Wing is not designed for attaching roof membrane under any conditions, and are provided unassembled in quantities of 1,000 pieces.
A ¾-in. pilot hole must be drilled entirely through the deck. Using a screw gun,* drive the fastener until the wing is drawn up against the underside of the deck and the attachment is tight.
The fastener must be long enough to allow a minimum of 1½-in. clearance on the underside of the deck in order for the wing to open. Not recommended for securing with fasteners less than 4-in. long.
NOTE: Prior to job-start, contact OMG to perform a pullout test to determine pullout values.
Also, care must be taken not to overdrive the fastener causing subsequent damage to the insulation facer. Fastener must be tight enough so that the plate does not turn.
* For best results use a variable speed 0–2500 RPM screw gun. The fastener should always be tested on site by an OMG representative to determine performance.
Superior productivity. Superior performance.
