Mechanical Anchors, Drilled-In Anchors
What are they?
Mechanical anchors are also known as sleeve anchors, wedge anchors or expansion anchors. Made from carbon steel or stainless steel, these anchors are designed to bolt or wedge down to hardened concrete or masonry elements.
What do Mechanical Anchors work?
The anchors, when hammer-driven into the same size cleaned hole as the anchor shank, create a friction value which transfers the load to the anchor keyed or wedged at the bottom of the drilled hole.
