Re: BOLT- Epoxy Anchors -Reply -Reply

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
One reason I would use adhesive anchors instead of mechanical
anchors is for the type of load it is resisting. Mechanical wedge anchors
are not designed  to resist cyclic or seismic loads since the wedge
works in only one direction. These applications require adhesive (IE
epoxy, esters) anchors. So from retrofit wall anchors to missed wood
panel hold down bolts, adhesive anchors are commonly the only solution.
One exception is the bearing undercut anchor but it requires large edge
distances which cannot always be provided in the base material.
