Anchor bolts are built and designed to attach some elements to the base or concrete material. It is a useful part and is essentially used in architecture, crafts, and appliances. More specifically bolts can be used to fix or put together steel with another base or concrete. One end of the bolt goes inside the concrete, giving a strongly attached base while the other end is left behind so that structural support can be attached to it. These bolts have revolutionized the world of architecture, giving strong units while ensuring smooth functioning of the applications.
Just like a steel screw there are various types of bolts available in the market. But the main type includes four kinds of bolts which are known as s-wedge, double end rods with plate, L-shaped, and headed bolts. Each of them serve a different purpose or use. They vary in shapes and sizes, also provide with several advantages.
Now let’s discuss about different types of bolts and their specific uses.
Double end rods with plates:
These anchors are no less than a double decker, these double end rod bolts have an added washer joined at the end part. The plate part can be used in two different ways, either it can be welded in the bolt itself or you can tack weld it in to a nut placed on the concrete base. These bolts are used in the construction of highway warning signs, building’s columns, and other electronically used appliances. The customer can get it in any grade and they are also available in stainless steel. A307, F1554-55, F1554 -36, A193 B7, F1554-105, 316 Stainless, 304 stainless, you can find them in the standards above mentioned.
L-Shaped Anchor Bolts
L-shaped are primarily used in various applications which may include sign structures, light poles, tooling and heavy appliances or equipment. They are also available in stainless steel and in any grade that a customer may want.
These bolts have a circular steel bar that is attached to one end which is “s-wedged” and thus it is called s-wedge bolt. These are used for domestic purposes which means they are used to join piers and girders. They are available in various material which also includes stainless steel. The range of choice increase its demand in different sectors.
Headed Anchor Bolts
These bolts have a unique design like every other bolt these do not have a forged head. Its end is usually a hex, square head, or heavy hex. The above part of the bolt is attached into the base giving a secure construction of the material. It is used in the making of light poles, bridge railing, and columns for the buildings.
