Concrete Screws

Hobson XBolts are single unit screw-type anchors that are used in solid concrete applications. Fixing is achieved by screwing the anchor into the hole. As it is screwed in it creates its own undercut by tapping the concrete hole. The cutting and locking mechanism without expansion enables the anchor to be used in close spacing and edge distance applications. They are used in medium duty anchoring applications, typically used by contractors in the precast, formwork and steel construction industries. Ideal for applications that require anchor removability.

Sleeve Anchors

Hobson Tygabolts® are pre-assembled single unit wedge-type anchors that are used in solid concrete applications. Fixing is achieved by controlled torqueing of the nut, which draws the cone section up into the sleeve, thereby expanding it outward and forcing the Tygabolt™ against the sidewall of the pre-drilled hole. Ideally used in applications that require a medium-duty anchor for fixing into concrete, solid masonry and brick. They are typically used by contractors in the building, plumbing, electrical and carpentry trades.

Hobson Clawbolts® (Through Bolts) are pre-assembled single unit wedge-type anchors that are used in solid concrete applications. They comprise of a partially threaded stud, which has a tapered end section, a captive expandable clip, nut and washer. Fixing is achieved by controlled torqueing of the nut, which draws the tapered section up into the clip, thereby expanding it outward and forcing the ClawBolt™ against the sidewall of the pre-drilled hole. Commonly used where through fastening of parts to concrete are required such as metal angles, ties, brackets, traffic barriers, shelving, balustrade, machinery and through timber beams, railings, posts, stairways etc.

Drop In Anchor

DropIn (Wedge) Anchors are internally threaded expansion anchors that are used in pre-drilled holes. They comprise of a tubular expansion shield and a solid internal cone-shaped plug. Fixing is achieved by inserting a compatible setting tool into the anchor and hitting it several times with a hammer until the shoulder of the tool is flush with the top of the anchor. This allows for the internal plug to be driven down through the shield forcing the four external segments of the shield outward and locking the anchor against the wall of the pre-drilled material. Ideally used in applications that requires a medium duty anchor for fixing into solid concrete and typically used by contractors in the building, plumbing, electrical and air conditioning trades.
