    • Approved (ETA 14/0135) for redundant non-structural systems in cracked and non-cracked concrete (C12/15 to C50/60), including under conditions of fire exposure.
    • Approved (ETA 14/0068) for structural applications in non-cracked concrete (C20/25-C50/60).
    • FM Approval for use in fire sprinkler systems.
    • Confirmed suitability for the installation of sprinkler systems in accordance with the VdS CEA 4001 guidelines.
  • Available in a wide range of metrics sizes (M6-M20) +info
  • Maximum performance.  We guarantee high recommended loads in C20/25 uncracked concrete and C20/25 cracked concrete.
  • New short version. Allows installation in base materials of low thickness.

Other key characteristics

  • Easy installation. The EXP tool with rubber protector enables safe, controlled and ergonomic expansion of the anchor.
  • Maximum versatility. The metric inner thread allows it to be used in multiple installations with metric bolts and/or threaded bars.
  • Removable and reusable anchor. The bolt or bar used can be removed, leaving a clear surface (the casing and cone remain inside the bore hole). The installed anchor can be reused.
  • INDEX® manufacturing. This allows us to ensure a rigorous control of processes, guarantee the highest quality in our products, provide the best service and obtain a competitive global cost.
  • Available in INDEXcal. The INDEXcal anchor calculation programme is the best tool to help structural design engineers comply with the requirements of Part 4 of Eurocode 2. It checks all the anchors in our catalogue quickly and thoroughly based on the parameters entered by the user, indicating whether or not they are suitable. +info

Design and geometry

HE anchor inner thread

Inner thread. The first part of the anchor has an inner thread where the metric bolt and/or threaded bar is installed (bolts and bars not supplied with the product). The metric inner thread guarantees maximum versatility for use in multiple installations.

HE anchor internal cone

Internal cone. The lower part of the anchor contains a cone that causes the fins to expand during installation.

HE anchor fins

Fins. The expansion of the cone causes the fins to expand, producing friction against the walls of the base material to enable fastening.

HE anchor protection

Protection. The plastic inside the anchor prevents the cone from falling during installation or transportation of the box.

HE anchor version with HE-CL collar

Version with HE-CL collar. The version with collar prevents the anchor from being introduced too far into the base material in cases where the bore hole has been made deeper than required by the documentation.

HE anchor short version HE-HC

Short version HE-HC. The HE-HC version enables installation in areas where there are believed to be a lot of reinforcement trusses, such as the lower part of slabs. Given its short length (25 mm) it is not expected to interfere with the trusses.

HE anchor identification

Identification. The size of the anchor is punched onto the body to allow easy identification and to always know the required bore size and expansion tool.
