Dynamic anchors are a type of industrial fasteners with a weight-bearing capacity to fit industrial objects such as plant and machinery to concrete-made constructions as well as strengthen these constructions to prevent them from destructions resulting from earth movements or heavy loads. These anchors are often made of stainless steel or carbon steel coated with zinc. Popularly used in sectors such as civil engineering; these anchors act as industrial safety tools for industrial structures.
How a Dynamic Anchor Works
Dynamic anchors derive their holding value from the adhesive bond created between concrete and the anchors. These anchors are incorporated into the concrete in two ways, including pre-installation or post-installation. Pre-installation is done during the pouring phase of concrete placement where the anchors are directly cast.
Post-installation of these anchors, on the other hand, is done by either mechanically or chemically into a block of precast concrete. Mechanical post-installation involves interlocking the anchors with the precast concrete through a drilled hole. Conversely, chemical post-installation is where anchors are installed in a drilled hole after a gluey mortar has been poured into the drilled hole to create the adhesive bond between the anchor and the drilled concrete.
Technically, the larger and the deeper the drilled hole is, the larger the capacity the dynamic anchor can withstand seismic movements and heavyweights, guaranteeing safety than the structure’s previous state.
