Shield anchors for heavy duty applications
Shield anchors are heavy duty fixings used to anchor different materials in concrete, brick or stone. They’re often used for through fastening, and work by creating a secure fixing via an easy-to-use mechanism whereby the bolt and the expansion shield expand against the base material. Because they can be easily removed, they’re ideal for temporary structures.
Shield anchors from T&I Chalmers are quick and easy to install and can be custom made in a variety of lengths and sizes to suit your specific needs.

Things to know about Shield anchors
How do you use shield anchors?
- Drill the hole to the correct size and depth. If the hole is too big the anchor will spin in the hole without gripping.
- Remove debris from the hole.
- Push the shield anchor through the fixture and into the hole.
- Tighten the bolt so the shield spreads apart and grips the sides of the hole.
How do you size shield anchors?
Shield anchors are sized by both their thread size and their bolt length. For example, if you wanted a shield anchor with thread size of M6 and bolt length of 55mm, you would order a M6x55 shield-anchor.
What mass can shield anchors hold?
Refer to the shield anchor table for the recommended tension load.
