The frame fixing products in this range are ideal for solid masonry and concrete jobs such as fitting signs to the side of buildings or putting up shelves around the home or work place. This range of frame fixings can have multiple uses for many types of jobs, and are easy to install.
Frame Fixings For Speed And Strength
The typical frame fixing today is carried out with so much speed that the whole job is reduced to a very short time and the sealing of a building is now reduced to a couple of days at most. The advantages of this are immense in the construction trade as this allows the building to be dried and for the internal trades to begin their work quickly and in the best possible conditions. The rawl express anchor is one of the systems, which is used, and it really is an extension of the old rawlbolt and the best frame fixings are really an extension of this type of fixing.
The typical frame fixing is carried out by offering the frame into the space required be it a door or window and then shimming the frame if necessary. When the frame is fitted into the correct position then holes are drilled into through the frame and into the retaining wall. The bolts are then pushed into position and tightened. The joint achieved is very strong and will hold the frame fully in position although it may well receive a little added help as the walls are cemented or plastered. This type of fixing relies on the typical rawlbolt type fixing where the bolt is clamped against the sides of the hole as the tightened bolt pushes the clamping part strongly onto the walls of the predrilled hole. The life expectancy of such a fitting is excellent as is the strength of the joint. The strength obviously is influenced to some extent by the material of the walls, if it is a soft block the joint will not be quite so strong and may require extra bolts. A brick wall will have extra strength and will retain the frame with no problems. To get over this problem the softer blocks usually have a smaller hole drilled into them.
With the use of modern power tools and predetermined drill points the operation only takes minutes for each frame and the logistics of setting up takes longer than the work. The supplier will have a website with all the technical data relating to the frame fixing anchors and it is easy to work out the strength of the joint and all the relevant data. If there are any queries the supplier will be able to assist from the knowledge and experience already gained with the systems.
