My hand is not that strong to hammer those concrete nails into trunking+wall.

May I know what tool should I use for this purpose?

    Have you looked into adhesive based systems, or using a small hammer drill with concrete screws? – BrownRedHawk Sep 17 '15 at 11:32
  • Yes I do consider, but will they last for decades? Considering abrasive glue + silicon. – seesee Sep 19 '15 at 5:32
  • A threaded concrete anchor like tapcons would last decades. A good silicone would be sturdy, but also re-positionable without damaging the wall – BrownRedHawk Sep 19 '15 at 14:44
  • @BrownRedHawk implementation issue, I will have to drill the hole before driving in the anchor. When installing the trunking, it will be hard to estimate the position of the hole. Well I can drill the hole together with the trucking too =x – seesee Sep 20 '15 at 16:54
  • This is common. Typically you would predrill the trunking, mark and drill holes in the concrete wall, then use an impact driver or power drill to secure the fastener. They go in to concrete just like a screw into wood. – BrownRedHawk Sep 20 '15 at 17:41
