Concrete fastening is a little different compared to other methods of fastening such as those concerning materials made of metal where bolts and nuts are used. You have to use concrete anchors for this particular venture and mind you, it’s so much more difficult.
So basically the concept of fastening two solid bases is quite different from other kinds of applications. This is a popular material that is being used in so many industries all over the world because of all the essential qualities it possesses.
AAA Concreting, one of the top national concrete contractors in the USA, have provided the following information on concrete anchors. They can be found on their website at: www.aaaconcreting.com/florida
Below is a step by step guide that shows how concrete anchors work:
Concrete anchors that are assembled to for one unit is called a wedge anchor. They are made when steel rods (which are usually made of either stainless steel or carbon) are threaded on the ends which would result in the side opposites to where this is being done becoming a tiny bit smaller in terms of diameter which somehow affects the entire diameter of the rods.
It really has to be threaded as tight as it can be. There are tools which you can use to aid in this process such a wrench driven in between the clip and the stud to tighten it even more. The hole that is drilled in the wall concrete for these wedge anchors have to be the same measurement in diameter.
This is an anchor that is made from 4 different parts. The 4 parts are basically made of the washer, the nut, the sleeve, and the stud. The process of applying these anchors is a little bit different than the one previously discussed but then again the professionals who do them would have mastered the process regardless.
Sleeve anchors are usually inserted into the drilled hole in the concrete pretty much like how every other concrete anchors work. After being attached it will then be made to expand against the wall, locking it in place. Again, the size of the whole drilled is similar to the diameter of the anchor itself.
