Sleeve Anchors

Sleeve Anchors have a sleeve that expands as you tighten the nut for a secure hold in block or brick.

The anchor works by expanding against the material in which it is embedded. When the hex nut is tightened the conical end is pulled into the dilating sleeve pushing it outward 360° around the anchor into the masonry. They are designed to be used in solid or hollow masonry, including cinder block, brick, marble and concrete. One advantage of the sleeve anchor is that it can be removed after it's been installed. Another is that the length of the sleeve induces less stress on the substrate than does a wedge anchor. It is well-suited for permanently anchoring heavy equipment to concrete.

Anchors should be installed with a minimum of 10 anchor diameters between each other and a minimum of 5 diameters from the edge.
