Concrete can often crack due to age, temperature and loads.
So when you design anchor systems for concrete, it’s important to consider the condition of the concrete you’re working with.
Anchors are particularly affected when concrete cracks, because the cracks in the concrete usually run through where anchors are placed. This can significantly affect anchor resistance.
So at Hilti we’ve developed anchors specifically designed for cracked concrete.
Planning ahead and using anchors, which are specially designed for cracked concrete can help to make structures safe and avoid costly repairs.
