How to install a Screwbolt correctly

Installing a Screwbolt concrete fastener correctly is of paramount importance. Firstly, when fasteners are properly installed, they ensure a stable and secure connection between the object and the concrete, minimising the risk of detachment and potential injury. Improper installation can lead to weak anchoring, compromising the mounted structure's integrity and jeopardising safety. Plus, mistakes can cause undue stress on the concrete, leading to cracks or damage over time. Remember, correcting these errors can be both time-consuming and costly. Proper installation from the outset ensures long-lasting durability, optimal performance, and overall safety.

STEP 1:
• Using the correct diameter drill bit, drill a hole to the required anchor embedment depth plus at least one anchor diameter deeper. (This ensures residual dust doesn’t interfere with the anchor installation).
CAUTION: Ensure hole is drilled perpendicular to the concrete surface with maximum deviation of up to 5° degrees. Failure to do so may cause anchor breakage.
-
STEP 2:
Clean dust and other material from the hole.
CAUTION: DO NOT use a worn drill bit outside of drill bit tolerance specification. Worn Drill bits will affect the anchor installation either during installation or post installation.
-
STEP 3:
Screw in the anchor using a torque wrench or impact screw gun. Apply pressure against the fixing and rotate to engage the first thread. Continue to tighten the anchor until flanged head is firmly seated against fixture.
CAUTION: When installing with an Impact screw gun do not exceed the recommended torque specifications, failure to comply may result in anchor breakage.
-
STEP 4:
Installation complete!
CAUTION: Do Not over tighten and exceed the recommended clamping torque requirements, failure to comply may result in anchor breakage.

IMPORTANT:
Always refer to specific product torque specifications prior to installation. This can be found in ICCONS® Technical Data Sheets, ICCONS® Product Guide or on the individual product labels.
