- Sleeve Anchors – how strong are they?
So I’m putting together a smallish desk that’s going to be a piece of timber 1200 x 600 set on two heavy duty shelf brackets. To fix the brackets to the wall, I’ve got three sleeve anchors per bracket, M8 x 50mm.
I’m starting to wonder if the anchors are big / strong enough – I have never used them before so don’t know the recommended depths / sizes. Have I got the estimate horribly wrong or will it all go to plan?
By the way, I could easily go and get different fittings if I’m totally in the wrong ballpark…Posted 4 years ago
Sleeve anchors are mainly use in solid material like concrete, anything that could have things like frogs can stop a sleeve getting purchase.
EDIT 6mm, I think – needs a 10mm drill and a 13mm socket to put them in
EDIT, EDIT, just been to look, what I use is Hilti HUD in 8×60 for brickworkPosted 4 years ago
