Concrete inserts are used to connect objects to masonry or concrete. This can be achieved used a mechanical or an adhesive anchor depending on the potential load. If your project requires the installation of anchors, we can provide the drilling service and/or the anchor installation. Michigan Concrete is very experienced with mechanical anchors since our cutting processes require us to use them daily.
We also have several personnel trained at each location to install Hilti brand adhesive anchors. Adhesive anchoring is sometimes required by engineering specifications due to the strength of the epoxy adhesives. Embedments (ex: rebar, threaded rods, and posts) can achieve “pull-out” strengths greater than the concrete itself. These adhesives can also be used to fill cuts and holes in concrete to give structural concrete more strength. Michigan Concrete has tools to help you complete your anchor installations of any size and quantity.
