2023-12-02

Anchor Bolt is generally used in the construction field to fix and support in concrete or masonry. They are able to withstand forces in different directions without moving or falling off. Here is some information about common uses, types, and installation methods of Anchor Bolts:

use:

The columns, pipes, and equipment used to secure a building to its foundation or plinth.

Used to secure machines and equipment during manufacturing processes.

type:

Expansion Anchor Bolt: Also known as expansion bolt, when used, the anchor rod is inserted into the drill hole, and then the nut is rotated with a wrench to expand the anchor end, thereby generating friction with the drill hole wall and fixing it on the concrete or masonry.

Wedge Anchor Bolt: After drilling, insert its metal barrel into the drill hole, and then insert the expansion anchor. Rotate the nut so that the wedge goes inside the anchor, causing its end to expand and anchor to the concrete or masonry from the inside.

Sleeve Anchor Bolt: After drilling, insert the anchor into the hole, then place a sleeve on the anchor, apply force and rotate the nut to expand the end of the anchor to create a tight fit with the concrete or masonry. friction.

installation method:

Pre-drilling: Pre-drill holes according to the size of the anchor rod.

Clean the borehole: Use gas or a brush to remove dust, debris, and other impurities from the inside of the borehole.

Insert the anchor: Insert the anchor into the drilled hole until the anchor reaches the desired depth.

Secure the anchor: Use a wrench or electric wrench to turn the nut so the anchor expands and sets into concrete or masonry.

Please note that the best method of mounting the Anchor Bolt will depend on the specific application and requirements. If you have any questions, please consult a building and anchor professional.
