Bolts and shoes

Anchor bolts and column shoes can be used in concrete element frame connections to foundations and column extensions. Column shoes are used in light and heavy-duty column extension and foundation connections; wall shoes are used in tension connections of stiffening wall and shaft elements, retaining walls and earth pressure walls; and bolts are used in the foundation connections of shoes and wall shoes.

AHK column shoe

AHK column shoes are used in light and heavy-duty column extension and foundation connections of concrete frames, in corner connections of rectangular columns. AHK-K middle shoes are suitable for use in the middle of the sides of rectangular columns and in round columns. Shoe connections are designed using the AColumn dimensioning software. The bolts used for the shoes are ATP and AHP rebar bolts.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

APK-C column shoe

APK-C column shoes are used in heavy-duty foundation connections of industrial concrete element frames, in the corners of rectangular columns. The shoes are suitable for connections where the proportion of bending moment is dominant in the loads. APKK-C middle shoes are used in the middle of the sides of rectangular columns. The bolts used for the shoes are ALP-C anchor bolts.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

ASL wall shoe

Wall shoes are used in tension connections of stiffening wall and shaft elements, retaining walls and earth pressure walls.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

ATP and AHP rebar bolts

Rebar bolts are used in the foundation connections of AHK shoes and ASL-H wall shoes. The bolts are also suitable for foundation connections of steel and composite columns as well as light equipment and machinery connections to concrete structures. The ATP bolt is suitable for shallow foundations with space for the bolt’s dowel anchor. The AHP bolt can be used in narrow foundations near the edge of the structure. The bolts are designed using the AColumn dimensioning software. The bolt size selection is M16–M45.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

ALP anchor bolts

ALP-C series anchor bolts are used in heavy-duty foundation connections of industrial concrete element and steel frames. Connection solutions have been made for the bolts for connecting APK-C series column shoes and ASL-P series wall shoes to cast-in-place foundations.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

ALP steel structure bolts

Steel structure bolts for column base plate connections to various cast-in-place and element structures. There are separate applications for shallow foundations and structures close to the edge of concrete. S series bolts have a removable threaded section whose length and material are selected according to the corrosion conditions and the thickness of the structure to be connected.

Products

A-BEAM®

A-BEAM® and Anstar’s connection technology form part of the frame system, offering cost-efficiency and flexibility for construction.

Ties

Diagonal ties are used in concrete sandwich panels to connect the outer skin with the inner skin through the insulation layer. The ties transfer the self-weight and wind loads of the outer skin to the inner skin.

Fastening plates

Fastening plates are used on cast-in-place and prefabricated structures to provide a mounting surface for welding.

Brackets and supports

Anstar has developed bracket and support systems for efficient and affordable construction. The connection pieces are easy to install both at the prefabrication factory and on site.

Lifting systems

The AN lifting anchor is a product developed for lifting sandwich panels, enabling quick installation and protecting the panels against fractures.

Balcony connections

Balcony hinges are used to transfer horizontal forces from the balcony to the building frame. The hinged connection enables vertical movement.

Bolts and shoes

Anchor bolts and column shoes can be used in concrete element frame connections to foundations and column extensions.

Rebar couplers

Rebar couplers are used for joining rebars with full tension capacity. The ends of bars to be joined are provided with threads, and the bars are joined using a coupler sleeve that transfers the force on the rebar across the connection.

Bracing connections

ADE, ADL and ADK bracing connections are designed for stabilising the concrete element frame. These connections
are used in the joints between concrete columns and stabilising steel bracings.
