|To achieve maximum loads the installation process needs to be carried out as follows:|
|1. Drill hole in the substrate, using drill of correct diameter, ensuring the hole is deep enough to accommodate dust caused by threading action.
Drill hole perpendicular to substrate and ensure bit is not excessively worn.
|2. Remove any loose dust from the hole.|
|3. Screw in the Thunderbolt with socket wrench. Apply a slight downward pressure to start the self-tapping action.|
|4. Tighten the Thunderbolt until the fixture is in place. If resistance is experienced while tightening, unscrew one turn and re-tighten, ensuring not to overtighten with excessive torque.|
|5. For optimum performance, a torque wrench should be utilised. Do not exceed tightening torque shown in the setting detail chart (for max. tightening torque into brick or block, contact the technical advice line).|
SELF TAPPING MULTI-SUBSTRATE ANCHOR
The new Thunderbolt Anchor range of fixings provided the construction professional with a single
fixing Anchor for the majority of fixings needs
The fixings are suitable for carpenters, plumbers, electricians, builders, roofers, door and window
installers, fire, security and telecommunications installers, shopfitters, fencing, contractors, ceiling
contractors, exhibition contractors, carpet fitters, maintenance heating and ventilation engineers,
cladding contractors, kitchen fitters and public utility contractors.
- Thread designed to provide positive anchorage into the substrate
- Thread provides safe anchorage over full embedment of anchor
- Threaded anchorage is not subject to expansion pressure and maintains
its fix without preload
- “No expansion” gives close-to-edge fixing ability
- Single thread designed to give maximum insertion torque
- Balancing thread, designed to ensure correct alignment of anchor with drilled hole
- One-piece fixing for ease of installation and reduced cost. Used standard drill sizes
- Threading system allows for total removal of anchor from substrate
