The load and the building material to which the element is to be fastened are crucial for choosing an anchoring product. If this product is mounted incorrectly, the anchor will likely not satisfy load requirements. In addition, not every product is suitable for every mounting method. Every product has specifications for drill-hole depth, anchorage depth, edge spacing and axial spacing. To achieve a reliable anchorage, the specifications of the product must be followed. Mounting an anchor begins with marking the drill holes at the location of the anchorage. After drilling and cleaning a suitable hole, the plug or anchor is positioned and fixed in place as appropriate. If elements are to be attached at two or more anchoring points, it is desirable for the drill holes to be lined up meticulously. To achieve this consistency, you can use a drilling stencil or push-through mounting.


Anchors can be mounted in various ways. The choice of attachment mounting, push-through mounting or spaced mounting is determined to a considerable extent by the situation.


In attachment mounting, the plug or anchor usually forms a flush fitting with the building material surface. The drill hole in the anchoring base must be larger than the component being fastened.


For serial mounting, and particularly where there are more than two anchoring points per element, push-through mounting is normally used. The drill holes in the element can then be used as a drilling template, since the drill hole diameter in the element to be fastened is at least as large as the one in the building material. Apart from facilitating the mounting process, more accuracy is achieved with this method. The plug or anchor is pushed into the drill hole through the element to be fastened, and then it is fastened in place.


If the element to be fastened needs to be mounted in a pressure-resistant and tension-resistant manner at a certain distance from the anchoring surface, then spaced mounting is the appropriate choice. For this purpose, chemical anchors, threaded rods with check nuts or steel anchors with internal metric thread in combination with tap bolts can be used.
