What is a Wedge Anchor?

Wedge anchor consist of two separate pieces that are permanently pre-assembled into a single unit. The first piece is a carbon steel rod that is threaded for a portion of its length. The opposite/installed end of the anchor has a necked-down diameter, or conical space, that tapers outward back to the rod’s full diameter.

The second piece of the wedge anchor is a steel slip, or sleeve, that is permanently assembled around the conical section of the rod. Each wedge anchor also requires a nut and washer to complete installation.

Wedge anchors can be used in numerous applications as long as the base material is solid concrete. Unlike many other concrete fasteners, the wedge anchor cannot be used in brick or block.

The wedge anchor is simple to use and is available in a wide variety of diameters and lengths. Wedge anchors can be used in both light and heavy duty applications. A 1/4" x 1-3/4" wedge anchor, for instance, would be utilized in a light duty application, while a 1-1/4" x 12" anchor would be used in a situation that requires a heavy duty anchor.
