Press release date: Oct 19, 2017

The CONFAST®316 Stainless Steel Wedge Anchors are ideal for use in solid concrete.They provide excellent and consistent holding values. The four parts of the wedge anchor are: 316 stainless steel, anchor body, expansion clip, nut, and washer. Threads of the wedge anchor protrude above the surface of the concrete once it is installed, which allows the item that has been fastened to be removed and reinstalled. Wedge anchors should be used exclusively for static load applications and should never be used in vibratory or shock loading applications.
