Increasing performance of mechanical anchors 13 June 2022

Bossong has updated its NWS-CE mechanical anchor according to the EAD guideline 330232-00-0601, which it says has increased its performance by about 30% when compared to its previous version.

Observing the load data in the new certification Bossong SpA has released a chart, pictured right, showing the admissible tensile load values for the various certified diameters. The company points out that the new version enables the use of a shorter length anchor to fix the same thickness. This means a less expensive anchor can be used, resulting in a lower labour cost because the hole drilled will be shallower.

“Thanks to this new load data the NWS-CE mechanical anchor has achieved performances equal to those of the best Option 7 mechanical anchors on the market,” proudly states Bossong. “The anchor features a number of strengths and is for diameters M8, M10, M12, M16 and M20, which are the most used diameters. Thanks to this the customer can carry out the installation with reduced depth.”

This mehanical anchor is available in galvanised steel, inox A2 and inox A4.
