Sleeve anchors are used for masonry expansion, and they are among the most versatile anchors you can find. They work in brick, concrete, blocks and other masonry materials, making them suitable for a variety of projects and purposes. At FMW Fasteners, we offer a selection of high-quality sleeve anchors in different sizes, styles and finishes, so you can find the perfect fastening product for you.
Fasten to a Variety of Masonry Materials
Sleeve anchors are expansion anchors that you can use to fasten to a wide variety of solid base materials, including concrete. How do sleeve anchors work? They are inserted into masonry products, where they expand to create tension that allows you to drive a permanent fastener inside.
When they expand, these anchors grip the surrounding material, making it possible to securely install other fasteners in masonry materials that would usually be difficult to work with. Due to their strength, sleeve anchors can support light through heavy loads. They can also function in indoor or outdoor environments depending on their finish — typically, people choose anchors with stainless steel plating for outdoor use.
To install a sleeve anchor, you'll need a hammer drill and an appropriately sized carbide drill bit. You'll start by drilling a hole into the base material. This hole must be the same diameter as the anchor being installed. However, it should also be a little deeper than the length of the anchor so that the anchor has room to expand. Follow the specific anchor's guidelines for installation.
Once you've drilled the hole, clear it of debris using compressed air. Then, insert the anchor, and tap it with a hammer until it's aligned with the base material. When the anchor is installed, you can screw in the corresponding fastener to attach the fixture you're fastening tightly.
FMW Fasteners offers many kinds of sleeve anchors. They come in various sizes and styles, including acorn, hex, flat and round heads. With a variety of sleeve anchors to choose from, you can find fasteners that meet your project's unique specifications and requirements.
