Anchors & Their Uses

Anchors & Their Uses

If you have ever tried to hang a heavy item on a wall, you have most likely used an anchor.  Anchors are commonly used to help secure screws to a porous or brittle material, but in the broad sense, anchors are used to attach an item or material to another.  The type of anchor one needs depends on the type of material they are using it on.  For instance, masonry or concrete anchors are used in concrete, plastic anchors can be used for drywall or hollow plaster and wedge anchors are used in stone.  Below is a list of popular anchors and their use.  If you are unsure of what anchor to use, contact American Fasteners and we will be happy to help you find the anchor that works best to suit your needs.
