Hammer set Anchor: The Complete Guide

Hammer set Anchor The Complete Guide

A Hammerset anchor can be used for anchoring in the sanitary, heating, and climate control areas or for diamond saws and drilling tools, and they are cost-effective and approved or unapproved. A low embedment depth, hammerset installation and direction-controlled screwing process make the assembly of the internal thread anchor extremely cost-effective. Using EA II EMS settings tools simplifies industrial installation even further. European Technical Approval for non-cracked concrete, approval for multiple uses for non-structural systems, and classification in fire resistant class R 120 ensure the highest level of safety. This blog will cover the Hammerset anchor and its variants.

Hammer set concrete anchors – what are they?

 Hammer set anchors are designed for use in as anchors when installing fixtures into the concrete, brick, block, or mortar of a building. The majority of their purposes are to secure plywood to concrete or to install furring strips and brackets. Hammer set anchors also known as, drive pins, nail drive anchors, ceramic anchor nails, and mushroom head anchors, hammer set anchors are extremely durable and can last for several decades.

A hammer-set anchor is simple and straightforward to install. An anchor pin is driven into the anchor body by striking the pre-drilled hole with a hammer, causing the anchor to expand. Unlike drop-in or double expansion anchors, they do not require a separate screw to secure a fixture. It’s not wise to put these into crumbly material; they will not last as long as more solid materials. Hammer-set anchors are endowed with a lip that prevents the anchor from falling too deeply into a pre-drilled hole. Consequently, these anchors can be applied to holes accidentally driven too deep into materials.

Hammer set anchors: how do we install them?

Placing the thing you wish to fasten over the hole after you’ve drilled the hole for the anchor, with its installation hole and the drilled hole in the foundation aligned, is the next step. Put your drive pin anchor into the hole, and then insert its lower portion into the material you’re fastening before you insert the lip or mushroom head into the hole. Then, by tapping the anchor’s protruding nail portion with a hammer, let the protruding nail portion flush with the anchor’s head. Now that you have installed the drive pin anchor, your hammer set anchor application is secured to the base material.

Hammer set anchors: How can they be removed?

As soon as the anchors for concrete, brick, block, and other masonry materials are installed, they cannot be removed. Removable clamps would not have nearly the same strong hold as they do today. Nevertheless, a hacksaw or cut off wheel would be preferable to hammer set anchor removal if the anchor must be removed. With this method, there is a high risk of damaging the surface material, so it is recommended not to do it. The body can be removed by drilling out the head with a high-speed drill bit after the head has been removed. When anchors are installed, they are hard to remove without causing damage to the fastening material. As a result, it is important to determine the anchor’s position before installing it.

Hammer set anchors serve what purpose?

Attaching plywood to masonry materials, such as concrete, is often done using drive pin anchors, or hammer-set anchors. These anchors are designed for lighter load applications in concrete, brick, block, and mortar. Metal brackets and furring strips may also be attached using these anchor bolts
