      Applications for the American Wedge Anchor

      • Not to be used in brick or block; the American Wedge Anchor should only be used in solid concrete
      • Packaged with correct type, size and number of nuts and washers
      • Expansion clip permanently attached to anchor body
      • Every diameter of American Wedge Anchors must be installed to a minimum embedment depth
      • Minimum spacing between American Wedge Anchors is equal to 10 anchor diameters. For example, a 5/8" American Wedge Anchor must be installed a minimum of 6-1/4" away from each other, center to center.
      • Edge distance from an unsupported edge of concrete must be a minimum of 5 anchor diameters, i.e. a 7/8" American Wedge Anchor must be a minimum of 4-3/8" away from the unsupported edge.
      • American Wedge Anchors are for use in dead load applications and should never be used in vibratory or shock loading applications.
      • Each American Wedge Anchor is stamped with a letter for easy embedment depth verification, once installed.
      • The American Wedge Anchor must be torqued within a range to assure proper expansion and minimum holding values.
      • The length of each anchor is an overall length measured from end to end, including the threads.
      • The proper size wrench must be used to turn the nut that sets the anchor in the concrete.
      • The hole diameter drilled in the concrete is the same diameter as the anchor being installed. The hole must be drilled using an ANSI standard carbide tipped bit.
      • When installing the American Wedge Anchor, make sure that 3 or 4 threads are below the surface before turning the nut.
      • If the American Wedge Anchor will be installed through a hole in the item while the item is in place, then the hole in the item needs to be larger than the designated diameter of the anchor.
