The POWER-SertAdhesive Insert Anchor is a proprietary internally threaded insert designed for use with structural adhesive.

The unique undercut design requires less adhesive and a shallow embedment while providing superior holding values in a variety of materials.

The exclusive FRICTION-FIT™ locks adhesive in place and allows immediate fastening of the fixture during cure time.

The POWER-SertAdhesive Insert Anchor is the ultimate problem solver!

It is machine lathed from a single piece of steel or stainless steel – no weak points, and the unique undercut design with knurling provides superior holding values.

There are no special tools required, allowing for easy installation. There is no need to move equipment or fixtures to be fastened. It is ideal for in-place use.

The POWER-SertAdhesive Insert Anchor allows for close edge distance and spacing.

It’s shallow embedment helps avoid rebar and drill-through, while the adhesive bond and shallow embedment minimize any effects of cone failure.

The POWER-SertAdhesive Insert Anchor is vibration-resistant, as the adhesive bond withstands more seismic vibration loading than most standard mechanical anchors.

Typical applications include the installation of car lifts, pallet racks, guard rails, machine anchoring, marine and bridge work in normal weight concrete, light weight concrete and solid masonry.

WEJ-IT® Strike-It™ Center Pin Drive Anchors

The Strike-It™ Center Pin Drive Anchor is an impact expansion anchor designed for medium and heavy duty anchoring into concrete and grout-filled block. With its unique all-in-one serrated nut and washer, the Strike-It™ offers superior holding and vibration resistance.

Strike-It™ Center Pin Drive Anchor is easy to install – just hammer the center pin and it’s all set.

The integrated nut and washer can be pre-set for the optimal embedment – flush at the top or screwed to the bottom for a stud-type application.

It is easy to inspect. The anchor is set when center pin is hammered down to meet the threads and is flush with top of the bolt.

The depth of the hole is not critical, and the actual diameter of the anchor is the same as its nominal diameter.

The serrations on nut-washer combination provide vibration resistance and the yellow dichromate finish provides superior corrosion resistance.

Typical applications include installing steel and wood plates, anchoring machinery, water and gas meters, conveyor belts and hand or guard rails.

WEJ-IT HOLLOW SET DROP-IN ANCHORS

WEJ-IT™ Hollow Set Drop-In Anchors are internally threaded expansion anchors. They are designed for anchoring in hollow substrates such as hollow-core, precast, and post-tension slabs. They can also be used in solid base materials.

Concrete masonry blocks often have a maximum outer wall thickness of 1-1/2″. During the drilling process, spalling on the back side of the wall often decreases the wall thickness, leaving only 1″ or less for anchoring. The Hollow-Set Drop-in Anchor is designed to perform in this environment, where most conventional style anchors will not function properly.

Product Spotlight: F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts

ASTM F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts are manufactured from medium carbon alloy steel that has been quenched and tempered (heat treated) to develop the desired mechanical values. This is the highest strength version of the F1554 specification, with a minimum yield strength of 105 ksi, covering anchor bolts in diameters ranging from 1/2″ through 3″.

F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts can be galvanized even though they are relatively high in strength. The galvanizing does not affect the mechanical properties of the anchor bolt and will not cause hydrogen embrittlement.

F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts should not be welded. Since they develop their strength characteristics through a heat treating process, applying heat (welding) in an uncontrolled environment could change the mechanical properties of the anchor bolt. The American Institute of Steel Construction Manual states “Anchor bolt material that is quenched and tempered (heat treated) should not be welded or heated.”

F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts have a tensile strength of 125-150 ksi and a yield strength of 105 ksi minimum.

Product Spotlight: STRUCTURAL RETAINING STARS

ALL STARS ARE NOT THE SAME ! … BE INFORMED … KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

Attention Engineers : Verify All Markings. Accept No Substitutes.

Many of the existing Building Stars were used for, almost exclusively, a structural reason. These Stars have a tendency to fail after many years in place due to the embrittlement of low grade / no grade cast iron. Also, keep in mind, that some of the Stars being sold elsewhere today should actually be classified as “strictly decorative, not for structural use.”

Our Structural Star Building Retaining Washers (Structural Retaining Stars) are domestically manufactured in the USA. Often referred to as Seismic Earthquake Washers or Century Star Washers, our washers have an architecturally accurate historic pattern, and are used as anchor plates or wall washers that are connected to a tie rod or bolt on exterior walls of masonry buildings for structural reinforcement, used to brace the masonry wall against lateral bowing. They are available with a five or six point star design in hot galvanized cast ductile iron or may be custom-ordered in aluminum or bronze.

Our Structural Stars are exclusively manufactured from Ductile Iron to ASTM 65-45-12, which is virtually a ‘semi-steel’ and hot galvanized and are weldable. In comparison to unrated Cast Iron products, there may be a risk when used inappropriately in structural applications.

Our Star Washers are also specified in plans as Gib Plates, Hurricane Bolts, Pattress Plates, Masonry Restraints and Tie Backs.

We can provide you with all of the accessories such as rods, nuts, washers, plates and turnbuckles which you may require to complete the project.

Most Stars have a flat back and a 7/8″ ID. The Hot Galvanized recommended accompaniments are : 3/4 Ogee Washer, 3/4 USS Flat Washer, 3/4-10 Heavy Hex Nut and 3/4-10 x 6′ Threaded Rod. The 13″ Stars require 1″ hardware. All Stars have a thickness of 7/8″, with the exception of the 13″ Stars, which have a thickness of 2-1/2″.

The most popular size is 7-1/2″ (5 Point), although 5-1/2″ (6 Point), 7″ (5 Point), 9″ (6 Point), 10-1/2″ (5 Point), and 13″ (5 Point) are also readily available.

Boston Construction: BPDA Board approves five residential and commercial projects

Reprinted from Boston Real Estate Times

BOSTON–The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) Board of Directors this month approved five new development projects and one Notice of Project Change (NPC). The new projects will create 325 residential units, 34 of which will be designated income restricted.

The approved new development projects represent 625.8 million square feet and an investment of $492.3 million, and will support 526 construction jobs, 1,059 direct jobs, and 280 indirect or induced jobs.

Accessory Parking zoning amendment will encourage an active streetscape 

The BPDA Board approved a zoning amendment that will require residential development proposals located in Neighborhood Shopping, and Local Convenience and Community Commercial sub-districts, to apply for a conditional use permit for the construction of parking in the basement or first floor.  This change helps ensure an active streetscape with retail and commercial storefronts and restaurants where feasible. 

This amendment will require residential development proponents in these business districts, seeking Accessory Parking to go through a community process, design review, and seek a Conditional Use permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals. Design review will help to ensure that facades that face the main street contribute to an active streetscape and avoid dark or blank walls, garage doors, and driveways.

Groundwater Conservation Overlay District expanded to additional neighborhoods 

The BPDA Board voted to expand the Groundwater Conservation Overlay District (GCOD) zoning Article 32 to Lower Roxbury, Audubon Circle, East Boston, and the Central Waterfront area. The GCOD ensures stable groundwater levels where buildings stand on filled land and utilize wooden pilings to support their foundations. Depleted groundwater exposes the tops of those pilings to oxygen and promotes decay, causing structural damage and potential collapse of the buildings they support. The GCOD helps ensure stable groundwater levels by requiring projects that meet certain thresholds to release rainwater into the ground, rather than discharging it into the stormwater sewer system.

The expansion is based on several years of data collected by the Boston Groundwater Trust (BGWT) from over 800 monitoring wells, and research of the foundation types and soil conditions of Boston’s neighborhoods where masonry buildings on wooden pilings may exist.  The expansion of the GCOD area will ensure the structural safety of Boston’s older buildings that exist on filled areas of the City. The proposed amendment will harmonize GCOD requirements with those of the Boston Water and Sewer Commission, provide for earlier notification to abutters of proposed projects, and standardize recharge requirements across the area of the GCOD.

Both items also require approval by the Boston Zoning Commission.
