Purchase Wedge Anchors
The Fastenal Trubolt wedge anchor is designed for use in solid concrete and should not be used in brick, block or any hollow base material.
- The expansion clip on the Trubolt wedge anchor is made from stainless steel, which prevents rust and ensures its holding values.
- Each box of anchors comes packaged with the correct number and type of nuts and washers.
- The exposed end of the anchor is stamped with a letter designating anchor length to provide for length identification and future embedment verification.
The Fastenal Trubolt wedge anchor:
- Is compliant with 2006 International Building Code
- Is fully threaded for embedment versatility
- Has a diameter of the hole drilled in the concrete that is equal to the diameter of anchor being installed
- Is available in zinc and hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel as well as in 304 and 316 stainless steel
- Can be inspected for proper installation via torque values
- Uses a hole that does not have to be spotted; can be installed through hole in fixture
- Does not require the bottom of the hole for expansion, which allows the depth of hole to exceed embedment depth of anchor
- Has a clip designed to provide 360-degree expansion
The Trubolt® is fully threaded and eliminates obstruction problems on the surface of the concrete as well as accommodating different thicknesses of material at the same embedment. One length anchor can be used in a multitude of applications to decrease inventory and save time and money.
- When installing the Trubolt wedge anchor in concrete, make sure that a hammer drill is used to drill the hole and that the drill is switched to the hammer and rotation mode.
- Choose a carbide drill bit that meets ANSI standards and is equal to the diameter of the Trubolt wedge anchor being installed.
- Drill the hole to a depth that exceeds the depth the anchor will be installed at, which will ensure space to accommodate drill fines.
- Clean out the hole
- Assemble the nut and washer onto the threaded end of the anchor, leaving the nut flush with the end. This will protect the threads when the anchor is struck with the hammer.
- Hammer anchor through the fixture hole and into the concrete until the nut and washer are tight against the surface of the material being fastened.
- Hand tighten the nut and then use a wrench to expand the anchor by turning the nut clockwise 3-5 turns or to the specified torque requirements for the diameter of the anchor being installed.
