Description

At this project Atlas Anchor was contracted to do pull testing on the anchors for a first of its kind vertical scaffold system.  We did multiple phases of testing with many anchors (DeWalt Screw Bolt Plus+, DeWalt Power-Bolt+) to identify the optimal anchor for their application. The anchor that performed the best was the DeWalt Screw Bolt plus ¾ x 6 #PFM1411800.  These bolts ultimately tested to 7000 lbs each.  The final phase of testing included us testing the anchors anchoring the brackets  which laterally supported a scaffold system.  The final test involved testing up to 20,000 pounds.   This was a very challenging project because of the type and age of the concrete and the application requirements.  Our services prevented the contractor from having to use a chemical anchor epoxy system that would have cost them 10 times more in material and labor and most importantly sped up the installation time of the scaffolding system.
