Anchor Bolts

Anchor Bolts:

INSCO Anchor bolts are designed to attach structural elements with concrete. Generally, anchor bolts are used to fasten steel to concrete. One end is embedded into the concrete, and the opposite end is threaded to attach structural support. There are four main types of anchor bolts: L-shaped, double end rods with plate, headed, and swedge. Each type has their own uses, sizes, and advantages. Let’s go over each type of anchor bolt and how they are used in structural applications each day.

L-Type anchor bolts are used in a variety of applications including light poles, sign structures, heavy equipment and tooling. At INSCO Fastener, we manufacture L-shaped bolts in 3/8”-2.5” diameter and any length required in the following standards: A307, F1554 -36, F1554-55, F1554-105, A193 B7, 304 Stainless, 316 stainless, and any grade the customer may require.

These types of anchors are double end rods with a plate washer added to one end. The plate can either be welded to the anchor bolt itself, or it can be tack welded to a nut entrenched in concrete. Plate bolts are used primarily in constructing columns for buildings, highway signs, and other applications. At INSCO Fastener, we distribute straight with plate bolts in 3/8”-4” diameter and any length required in the following standards: A307, F1554 -36, F1554-55, F1554-105, A193 B7, 304 Stainless, 316 stainless, and any grade the customer may require.

Unlike most anchor bolts, headed anchor bolts have a forged head on their unthreaded end. It is typically a hex, heavy hex, or square head. The head is embedded into the concrete to secure a variety of constructions including structural columns, bridge railing, and light poles. At INSCO Fastener, we manufacture straight with headed anchor bolts in 1/2”-2” diameter and any length required in the following standards: A307, F1554 -36, F1554-55, F1554-105, A193 B7, 304 Stainless, 316 stainless, and any grade the customer may require.
