POWER-DROP Drop-In Anchors

POWER-DROP Drop-In Anchors

usaPOWER-Drop anchors are internally threaded anchors that provide wedge anchor performance with the convenience of a drop-in anchor. The safety shoulder supports the clip when the anchor is under strain to eliminate bolt-end collapse and/or clip slippage under ultimate loading conditions. The POWER-Drop is seismic rated: allowable values may be increased 33.3% for short-term loading in resisting earthquake or wind loads. Numerous head style and size options are available: they may be used with machine screws, tamper-proof bolts, threaded rod and a variety of other male-threaded fasteners

Can be used with almost any material, including:

  • Normal Weight Concrete
  • Lightweight Concrete
  • Solid Masonry

POWER-Drop_Install_ImageInstallation Instructions

  1. Drill the hole perpendicular to the work surface. Do not ream the hole or allow the drill to wobble. Drill the hole to the proper minimum hole depth as shown in the chart for the anchor to be installed.
  2. Thoroughly clean hole using compressed air and a nylon brush. An unclean hole may compromise anchor performance.
  3. Set the initial anchor embedment: Thread the sacrificial cap screw with assembled nut and washer fully into the anchor. Refer to the table for Installation Spacing, then set that distance between the top of the anchor and the bottom of the washer to match this value.
  4. After setting the installation spacing, place the anchor into the hole and hammer downward on the top of the sacrificial cap screw until the nut makes contact with the surface of the concrete.
  5. To set the anchor you must tighten the nut. You may need to keep the cap screw from turning.
  6. Once the anchor is set remove the cap screw and clear the anchor with compressed air to remove any concrete dust from the threads

NOTE: Always wear safety glasses. Follow drill manufacturer's instructions. Use only solid carbide-tipped drill bits meeting ANSI B212.15 diameter standards.
