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 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
APK®-CM beam shoes are used in moment stiff beam-to-column connections of industrial concrete element frames. The shoes are also suitable for heavy-duty concrete element frame connections in office, commercial and public buildings.
The bolts used for the shoes are ALP®-P2S and ALP®-P2SM.OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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®-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
ASTEEL software is a tool for designing column base plate connections to concrete foundation with anchor bolts. The software uses Anstar Oy’s heavy anchor bolts as well as light rebar anchor bolts. It is suitable for connecting machinery and equipment to concrete foundation with anchor bolts. Software has been included joint for analyzing composite column, anchor plate and Truss plate connections to concrete.OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
A-BEAM® and Anstar’s connection technology form part of the frame system, offering cost-efficiency and flexibility for construction.
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 are used on cast-in-place and prefabricated structures to provide a mounting surface for welding.
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.
Balcony hinges are used to transfer horizontal forces from the balcony to the building frame. The hinged connection enables vertical movement.
Anchor bolts and column shoes can be used in concrete element frame connections to foundations and column extensions.
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.
ADE® 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.
