Sleeve anchors are a quick, simple, and adaptable masonry anchoring system. They are designed for application on a range of materials and for applications exposed to seismic loads. When the bolt of the fastener is tightened, it expands against the base material to create a strong connection and is able to distribute load-bearing weight.
It is composed of a wall pipe, hexagon bolt, ribbed nut, and flat pad. The bolt thread is the full thread.
Sleeve anchors are versatile. They can be used for light or heavy-duty fastening so can be applied in projects such as fixing radiators in the home but also work for much larger operations such as securing the joists of decking. These anchors can be used in a variety of base materials such as concrete, brick, and block.
Drilling the hole. First position the material you want to anchor and mark the locations of the product’s anchor holes on the concrete. Next, use a hammer drill to drill the holes in the concrete at the product’s bolt hole location.
Inserting the sleeve anchor. When inserting the anchor, position the nut so it is even with the top of the thread. This makes sure the threads are not damaged when installing.
Hold the nut and insert the anchor body through the product's hole and into the base material. Tap the anchor with a hammer until the nut and washer are flush with the fixing.
Use a wrench or a screwdriver to tighten. Turn three to five times until the installation torque is reached. Do not over-torque as it will compromise the fastening.
