Expansion Bolt Certification
Certification: ASTM E488 COMPLIANCE
Expansion Anchors were provided to and tested in accordance with ASTM E488 by two independent testing laboratories. The average pull out load of the 5100 series anchor was 2900 lbs. as tested in concrete blocks with a compression strength average of 3800 P.S.I. at time of test. Pull out values were determined as the maximum load achieved before concrete failure.
The average shear load of the 5100 series anchor was 16,200 lbs. as tested in concrete blocks with a compression strength average of 3000 P.S.I. at time of test.
Pull out loads are offered as a guide and do not guarantee specific performance due to variables in installation, masonry materials, tools and workmanship. The bolt used in the Expansion Anchor bolt assembly conforms to ASTM F1554.
