Wovar Anchor Bolts
Do you want to mount a thick beam on the wall? Or do you want to anchor another heavy object to a stone wall or concrete? With the anchor bolts from Wovar you ensure an extremely strong anchoring of beams and hardware to stone or concrete. Roughly speaking, Wovar has two types of anchor bolts, namely with push-through mounting and with pre-drill mounting. The advantage of these expansion bolts with push-through mounting is that you can mount your material directly. You do not have to fix this anchor bolt in the wall first and then apply the material to be anchored, but you can attach the anchor bolt directly through the material to be anchored. You must of course pre-drill this first.
Fastening anchor bolts is fairly easy. You drill the hole in the wall and the material to be anchored. Then use a hammer to secure the anchor bolt into the wall and firmly clamp the material to be anchored with the aid of a nut. Wovar sells Expansion bolts M6, M8, M10 and M12 thick. The lengths vary from 60 to 250 mm long.
How does an Anchor Bolt work?
Installing anchor bolts is quite simple. You pre-drill the hole in the wall and the material to be anchored. Then use a hammer to hammer the anchor bolt into the wall and firmly clamp the material to be anchored using a nut. Wovar sells Key bolts M6, M8, M10 and M12 thick. The lengths vary from 60 to 250 mm long.
In addition to the anchor bolts with push-through mounting, we also supply wedge anchors with pre-drill mounting. This refers more to the traditional expansion bolt. These are also called wedge anchors with plug-in rod. You must first anchor this type of wedge anchor in the wall, so you can then mount the material to be anchored over the wedge anchor.
Which Drill to use for these Anchor Bolts?
Anchor bolts are usually only used for anchoring in concrete or solid stone. You can use our concrete drill bits or hammer drill bits SDS-plus for this. You determine the thickness of the drill based on the thickness of the anchor bolt you wish to use. Are you using an M6 anchor bolt? Then choose a 6.0 mm hammer drill for a expansion bolt M6. Do you opt for anchor bolts M8? Then you use an 8.0 mm thick drill. This is also how it works with M10 anchor bolts and M12 anchor bolts. The thickness of the drill is equal to the thickness of the expansion bolt.
The length of the drill depends, you guessed it, on the length of the anchor bolt and the material to be anchored. You should always make the drill hole 5 mm deeper than the length of the anchor bolt - the thickness of the material to be anchored. This ensures that there is always enough space to attach the anchor bolt.
Drill for Wedge Anchors
For wedge anchors with pre-drilling mounting, the hole to be drilled should be somewhat thicker, because the sleeve is somewhat larger than the thickness of the bolt itself. This is also indicated per wedge anchor. For example, you pre-drill wedge anchors with pre-fitted mounting M6 with a 10 mm hammer drill. You pre-drill an M8 with a 14 mm, an M10 with a 16 mm and an M12 with a 20 mm drill.
Eye bolts are very strong because they are made of galvanized steel and provide a very strong attachment due to the high clamping range of the sleeve, making them suitable for high loads. You use them for objects that have a hook, so that they can be pulled through the eye of the wedge bolt, like shadow sails or sunshades.
These eye bolts are easier to assemble than you think. Pre-drill a hole in the wall, place the eye bolt in it and tighten the nut. As the nut is tightened, the sleeve will expand and clamp itself in the wall.
Hook bolts are most commonly used for shade sails. Shade sails provide wonderful cooling on days with a lot of sun. Hook bolts are installed in the same way as eye bolts. Depending on the thickness of the anchor bolt with hook, you drill a hole in the wall. With every hook anchor bolt is indicated which drill diameter and length you need to ue. These are also very strong and suitable for heavy loads.
