Re: Wedge Anchors vs. Epoxy Rods

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If expansion or wedge anchors can't be used in tension, what is to be used
overhead for hanging items from beams and slabs? Lots of pretty heavy
equipment is slung below floors.

The reason for asking is that many, if not all, adhesive anchors can't be
used in fire-rated construction. The adhesive will lose its strength at too
low a temperature.

What anchor is to be recommended in a 1-hour rated concrete beam?
