Drop-in anchors are zinc-plated steel anchors that are designed to provide a strong and secure hold in solid non-cracked concrete. They are suitable for various applications, such as hanging pipes, installing shelving, mounting machinery, and securing railings.
Wedge drop-in anchors have a wedge-shaped cone that expands when a bolt or a threaded rod is inserted, creating a tight fit in the hole. They also have an internal thread that allows for easy adjustment and removal of the bolt or rod.
To use wedge drop-in anchors, you will need to drill a hole in the concrete to the required depth and diameter. You will also need to clean the hole of any dust or debris. Then, you will need to insert the anchor into the hole with the threaded end facing up and tap it lightly with a hammer until it is flush with the surface. Next, you will need to use a setting tool to drive the wedge cone into the anchor body. This will expand the anchor and lock it in place. Finally, you will need to remove the setting tool and insert your bolt or rod through the fixture and into the anchor. You will need to tighten it with a wrench or a socket until it is secure.
