Standard Wedge Anchors
- Internally threaded anchors for use in concrete
- Set by hammer and setting tool
Typically used in mechanical and electrical installations for suspending threaded rods from concrete ceilings or as a general fixing for bolting fixtures to concrete. These anchors have the advantage of a shallow embedment depth avoiding deep holes and undue contact with the rebar. The anchor is inserted into the drilled hole and expanded by hammering the internal expansion cone with a setting tool. Also called Drop-in Anchors, Non-Drill Anchors, Red Heads, HKDs etc.
