Description

Atlas Anchor was hired by Safeway Atlantic to do pull testing on Dewalt Power Stud+ SD1 Wedge Anchors.  The anchors were going to be anchoring a tieback plate for the scaffolding system.  This tieback plate is a life safety for the workers working on the scaffolding system.  The anchors needed to test to 1250 lbs each.  The pull testing revealed that the anchors could not support the load so the contractor had to do a sandwich plate system.
