“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together”. Perhaps anchor is the smallest thing in the construction site, but it affects much as it is one of the most important components that comes with significant quantities in general. 


There are many different types of anchors and fasteners commonly used in the market such as torque controlled expansion anchors, displacement setting expansion anchors, rotation setting anchors, cast-in anchors, chemical anchors, friction based light duty anchors and powder/gas-actuated pins.


How could we choose the right fastening system (anchorage system and fixing solution) with technical and cost satisfaction?


Different kind of anchorage systems provide different features, advantages and benefits in technical basis such as limited anchor spacing, cracked or non-cracked concrete situation, fire rated or resistant to seismic, etc. They have different installation methods with different cost implication. Choosing the right anchor system could enhance the installation efficiency and eliminate the cost by preventing overdesign.



In this talk, the speaker will share her experiences and product knowledge gained from her field over the years. She will introduce the range of post-installed anchors, cast-in anchors, concrete lifting system, self-drilling screws as well as gas actuated pins. Also, the brief comparison of installation method and hence the cost implication will be covered.
