Eurotec adds to concrete fixing range 31 May 2016

Eurotec GmbH has extended its concrete fixing range by introducing the Eurotec bolt anchor – a torque controlled expanding plug made of electro galvanised steel – and the Eurotec ‘Rock’ concrete screw, which is a direct fastening without a plug.

The unique features of the bolt anchor are that it is possible to maintain small centre and edge distances despite the high load-bearing capacity. The different installation depths and various sizes possible with the bolt anchor means it can be used in a variety of ways and is a suitable replacement where plastic plugs and other wall mounts are insufficient. Every bolt anchor is fitted with an expansion clip, which ensures high load-bearing capacity and means less fastening points are needed.
Eurotec’s next product is the ‘Rock’ concrete screw, which is used for direct fastening, without a plug. After the hole is pilot drilled and cleaned, the screws are simply installed. During screwing, the thread cuts a perfectly fitting mating thread in the surface. There is no expansion effect, whereby shorter edge distances are possible. The processing is fast, simple and requires no large preparations. The concrete screws are suitable for fixings in concrete, solid brick, lightweight concrete, aerated concrete, pumice stone, sand-lime bricks and air bricks.
