Strength Design Power-Stud® Expansion Anchors by Powers Fasteners®

What are Expansion Anchors?

Expansion Anchors can be used to describe the majority of concrete and masonry anchors. Expansion anchors have an expansion mechanism that is designed to compress against the base material. Each style of expansion anchor can have a different expansion mechanism, which can either be a sleeve, slotted shell, slotted stud, or wedge assembly. The expansion mechanisms are actuated by a tapered cone, tapered plug, nail, bolt, or screw depending on the anchor. The compression of the expansion mechanism against the wall of the drilled hole allows the anchor to transfer the load to the base material. Anchors that are expanded by tightening a bolt or nut are considered to be torque controlled anchors.

Stalgard® High-Performance Protective Coatings

Stalgard® is a durable, multilayer, corrosion-resistant coating, engineered to provide optimal performance in demanding construction applications.

Tanner offers several quality fastening products that are coated with Stalgard® finish.  Fasteners coated with Stalgard finish typically show no red rust or other base metal corrosion on significant surfaces even after 800 hours of 5% neutral salt spray exposure (ASTM B117).

 

Tanner  fastening products with Stalgard Corrosion Resistance Finish:

UltraCon Concrete Screws

Drill-Flex Structural Self-Drilling Screws

Crete-Flex Stainless Steel Concrete Screws

Bi-Flex 300 Series Stainless Steel Self Drilling Screws

Aggre-Gator 300 Series Stainless Steel Bi-Metal Concrete Anchors


 

300 Series Stainless Steel Fasteners

Two new products have caught my eye recently, both 300 series stainless products with unique features. If your job requires fastening and anchoring in exposed, wet areas, coastal, aggressive environments these products are for you.

Bi-Flex™ Bi-Metal Self-Drilling Fasteners combine 300 series stainless steel corrosion resistance with the convenience of self-drilling.

Aggre-Gator™ 300 Series Stainless Steel Bi-Metal Concrete Anchors feature bi-metal technology: a 300 (18-8) stainless steel head and shank fused to hardened steel tapping threads and gimlet point.

Save Installation Time- New Overhead Anchor

The new SNAKE(TM)+ overhead anchor from Powers Fasteners, Inc. speeds installation of threaded rods…and is one of the industry’s first mechanical anchors to meet the new more stringent International Building Code (IBC) for strength design (Cracked Concrete).

The patented proprietary anchor eliminates the time-consuming steps of banging in a drop-in and then using a special tool to set the expansion mechanism. It is simply set into a drilled hole and then tightened with a ½”  impact wrench until flush with the ceiling and ready for the insertion of threaded rod. There is no need to swing a heavy hammer overhead while on a ladder or lift.
