AX

  • Direct fixing into concrete walls with expansion bolts. Indirect fixing onto sub channel systems with hex bolts.
  • Three dimensional adjustability – Quick and easy fixing.
  • Installation at horizontal and vertical joints.
  • Optimum static performance and low engineering for higher loads and larger projection sizes.
  • Recommended projection sizes up to 10-3/16″ (260 mm) and loads up to 290 lbf (1300 N).

1) Vertical adjustment is provided through the body space. The anchor is fixed onto the bolt through the wedge washer and the lock washer at the desired level.
2) Adjusting the projection size by simply moving the adjustable arm without rotating. The adjustable arm is safely fixed to the anchor body with the lock nut and hex bolt.
3) Adjusting the anchor left and right is provided by sliding the body up to 15 degrees left or right.

  • Suitable for concrete walls. Anchors are fixed onto concrete walls with expansion bolts.
  • Projection sizes between 2-5/16″ – 10-3/16″ (60 – 260 mm) and loads up to 290 lbf (1300 N).
  • In horizontal installation, slabs are pinned on the bottom and upper sides. The anchors act as load bearing, carrying half the weight of the slabs above. Anchors also act as restraint holding the slabs below and restraining against wind suction and pressure.
  • In vertical installation, slabs are pinned at the left and right sides. The anchors on the bottom are load-bearing anchors carrying the whole weight of the slab. Half the weight of the slab on the left and half the weight of the slab on the right. The anchors on the top are restraint anchors holding the slabs and restraining against wind suction and pressure.
  • Three dimensional adjustability allows quick and easy installation.
  • The design and structural calculations of these anchors are made in our technical department. Special design and manufacturing can be made for the requirements of the project.

Fixing Systems For Heavy Stone Panels

Load Bearing Anchors

Heavy Duty brackets used for load bearing are fixed onto load bearing concrete walls. The two main methods that are usually used for attachments are either by anchor bolts or cast in channels. Both cast in channels and anchor bolts are specified according to the load requirements of the project and must be structurally verified in accordance with the loads of the project.

Heavy Duty brackets have limited adjustability to take the irregularities of the walls. An accepted method is use of shims to adjust the projection sized by up to 3/16″ (5 mm.) Greater adjustability can be achieved by special design as illustrated on the diagram on the right. An adjustable plate can be adapted to adjust in and out the distance of the projection size.

Restraining Brackets

There are many systems to be used for restraining the stone slabs that are supported on a corbel system. Channel systems can be used as they are suitable to be fixed on commonly used steel sections. Restraint anchors or wall ties can be easily fixed onto the channel at desired position which enables greater flexibility and easiness.

Restraint brackets are used for restraining stone slabs directly onto wall backings. There are various types of brackets that can be used for quick and easy installation. Depending on the cavity and the existence of insulation on the wall, different type of restraint brackets are preferred for installation.
