Anchor Bolts –

Anchor Bolts are mechanical fasteners used to attach objects to concrete structures. The mechanical anchors can be immediately loaded after installation. They are made of steel as the material has a very high heat resistance. All the anchor bolts have a threaded end, to which a nut and washer can be attached for transfer of the external loads.

Cast in Anchor Channels-

Cast-in Anchor channels are channels that are cast in concrete. They are versatile and provide flexible fixing points for windows and glazing where drilling cannot be done. The building transfers all the impact loads from the exteriors onto the building structure via the anchor channels. The cross sections of the anchor channels have become very sophisticated so as to maximize the efficiency of transfer of loads.

Under Cut Anchors-

The Under Cut anchors are the strongest anchors and are very well suited for dynamic loads. They are used in areas where the safety of people is the prime requisite like roller coasters and nuclear power plans. The undercut anchors are very strong and perform very well even in cracked concrete. Some amount of drilling might be required in undercut anchors.
