Things to Consider

  • For use in new masonry walls
  • For use during wall construction
  • Anchor installs in jambs and is placed between courses of block wall
  • Ships loose (No option to install)
  • Intended for jamb depths up to 8 ¾”
  • 1 anchor needed for each 30” of jamb (not used in head or sill)
  • 3/16” diameter and 9-10 inches long
  • Approved for use in fire rated walls up to 3 hours (180 minutes)
  • Most popular anchor for new masonry walls due to cost and versatility

  • Loose anchors are commonly misused (using too many) or lost on job site
