New Red Head® Trubolt+® Wedge Anchor Launched to Improve Concrete Anchoring

Press release date: Oct 26, 2017

Maximum strength and ultimate flexibility make this wedge anchor best in class for heavy-duty concrete anchoring

ITW Red Head introduced the new Trubolt+ Wedge Anchor to the market, expanding upon the success of the original Trubolt Wedge Anchor. This updated version features a high-strength studded body that's built to resist both high wind and seismic tension. The Trubolt+ Wedge Anchor is also made for use in both cracked and un-cracked concrete.

This enhanced product is designed to have 360-degree contact with the concrete, which provides a strong hold, no matter what the application. Also, because the anchor is not bottom-bearing, the Trubolt+ is perfect for concrete-based projects.

"The Trubolt+ Wedge Anchor is reliable for any building project," said Mike Dill, Innovation Manager. "Its ability to be used in cracked, un-cracked, and seismic concrete conditions paired with its high strength in concrete makes it ideal for any heavy duty job."

Not only is Trubolt+ code compliant, but this wedge anchor also provides the most design flexibility of any anchor on the market. Trubolt+ can be placed closer to the edge of the concrete and closer to one another than other wedge anchors, making it more versatile in placement and project design.

The Trubolt+ Wedge Anchor is available at The Home Depot, Lowe's, and Menards, in-store and online, now.
