Render fixing FIF-PN 8

The pre-assembled drive anchor with reinforced plastic nail

The ETA approved fischer render fixing FIF-PN is ideal for securely fixing pressure-resistant insulation up to 190 mm thick in the plaster façade such as polystyrene boards, wood wool lightweight panels and PU panels in concrete, solid and perforated brick. The fischer render fixing FIF-PN comprises a grey plug sleeve with preshaped octogonal disc and a plastic nail. The FIF-PN is set using a hammer. This saves time and money. The integrated hammer-in stop prevents the fixing from expanding prematurely, thus enabling a problem-free installation. The glass-fibre-reinforced plastic nail reduces the heat transmission and prevents marks on the plaster surface.

Product Description


  • To set with few hammer blows.

  • The disc fits tight into the insulation thanks to its thickness of only 2.5 mm. Thus allows the application of low-cost, thin reinforcement layers.

  • Optimised retention forces thanks to the glass fibre reinforced plastic nail (GRP).

  • Small anchoring depth of 35 mm saves on drilling times.

  • Thanks to the GRP nail, the fixing is free of thermal bridging with the Chi value 0.000 [W/K].

  • The compression zone in the shank allows the disc to be drawn precisely into the insulation.

  • For insulating material thicknesses up to 180 mm.
