Re: Wedge Anchors vs. Epoxy Rods

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Paul,

To find out more about wedge anchors (Redheads, Quik Bolt, etc..), please
refer to current ICBO reports.  These reports will give you all you need as to
what specific use for them.  One interesting note though, ICBO does not
recommend wedge anchors to be use in seismic or other cyclic loading
conditions.  I know contractors love wedge anchors for quick installation and
non-"special inspection" requirement, but during cyclic loading conditions,
they have not proven themselves worthwhile.  Hope this help.
