Anchor system saves time and money

HDA self-undercutting anchors are easily set in less than 1 min and eliminate the need for special setting and undercutting tools. Fastening quality is comparable to cast-in headed studs. The products exert almost no expansion forces, making them ideal for heavy-duty fastenings where anchors are closely spaced or positioned close to edges. Hilti, Inc., www.us.hilti.com
