IMPORTANT: Most adhesives in the marketplace would not work or are not approved for installation in all water conditions. You should always confirm with manufacturer before use.
Q: Is a different product needed to install anchors into Hollow masonry?
A: A7+ and C6+ have been designed and approved for installation into hollow-masonry.
The ITW Screens and umbrellas are design for hollow connections. Note that the screens should not be interchangeable between manufactures. Please only use Red head accessories for hollow masonry connections.
Q: What are the advantages of using adhesives vs. mechanical anchors?
A: Adhesives have better spacing, the anchors can be installed closer together and closer to the edge of a slab. Adhesives are stronger in some case and be a preferred option if the load is vibratory, or if you need higher resistance.

Applications

    Concrete dowelling (slabs, walls, columns) - Steel framing (columns, beams, ledgers) - Brick pinning and CMU reinforcement - Architectural metal fastening (railings, signage) - Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing attachment - Vibratory equipment anchoring
