How to Select the Right Hilti Inserts and Fixings for Your Job

Ultimate, premium or standard?

Hilti consumables

We colour code our chopping boards, folders and even bins… So why not colour code consumables? Well, that’s exactly what we’ve done.

From inserts to fixings and fastenings, we know that you need different consumables depending on the task at hand. Whether you’re looking for the ultimate performance in a challenging situation or a reliable product for everyday applications, you’ll find what you need in our comprehensive range of

consumables. So, how do we differentiate our current range?

Three lines of consumables makes it easy to choose the right one for you!

Three colours, three performance levels, three price points – all under one brand that means quality you can rely on. We’ve made it simple to understand, so that at a glance the differences between the product lines for all our consumables are clear as day. Our three-line approach with consistent names and colours across all product categories, makes it easy to choose the right insert, fastener, fixing, foam or other consumable you need.

For example, someone who is cutting concrete all day definitely requires a product with long lifetime and a fast cutting speed, therefore they would benefit from using an Ultimate cutting disc as opposed to an infrequent user who may not necessarily experience the full value that Ultimate brings.

Why the multi-line approach?

Over the years we have expanded the consumables portfolio to meet your needs. However, a recent survey has revealed that this has led to a challenging and complex portfolio to understand as well as differentiating between product lines (e.g. HST and HSA or TE-CX and TE-C). That’s where the multi-line approach comes in.

Research has found that colour coding has an important effect on improving information acquisition and memory and as our product lines are ever-growing, it makes sense to have an easily identifiable colour system. This is how we work in our everyday lives, everything around us has a colour identification. As a result, you can now find the right consumable for your application in no time, whether that’s a concrete drill bit, circular saw blade or diamond cutting disc, leaving some precious time for other essential tasks. 

Finally, with our clear and consistent three-line approach to labelling across all product categories, you can quickly and easily find the inserts, fasteners, fixings, foams and any other consumables you might need. This means that you can get the balance right between performance, productivity and price.
