UNISORB® Capsule Anchors™ offer tremendous holding power which is stronger than the concrete itself. A graded blend of quartz aggregate transfers the pullout forces into the concrete. Since there are no expansive forces from the anchors, they can be placed near foundation edges, chip troughs, coolant trenches or wireways. High anchor to concrete strengths are developed, allowing smaller anchor holes and studs than what is possible with conventional expanding anchor type systems.
Extensive testing and field trials have proven the UNISORB® Capsule Anchor System™ to be one of the most dependable anchor systems available, far superior to expansion type anchoring systems. The capsules may be used in wet or damp locations, including under water. They can also be used horizontally or overhead without special measures to retain the capsule contents.
In addition to general purpose construction applications and installation of machinery, Capsule Anchors are commonly used in tough-to-hold applications such as installation of dock bumpers and doweling of concrete. UNISORB® Capsule Anchors™ are ideal for anchoring the following equipment:
