Soon after your crews complete a large concrete placement, you discover that the required cast-in-place concrete anchors were accidentally left out. No need to panic. Anchors that are bonded or mechanically attached inside drilled holes can serve as substitutes. In fact, these post-installed anchors can be as strong or even stronger than cast-in-place systems. They also can be precisely located and often are less expensive.
A wide selection of bonded and mechanical anchoring systems is available to suit various applications. To choose the best product for the job, you must first determine what loads will be applied to the anchor. Proper anchor installation also is important.
