Screw Anchors, or wall plugs as they are otherwise known, are generally used as attachments for various types of fasteners. More specifically, they find usage when the fastened material may not support the weight of the screw on its own. As an example, many masonry walls are too brittle to properly allow for the installation of fasteners per se. However, anchor screws also play a number of other roles, primarily as supportive elements of a system or structure.
Drop-in Anchors are primarily used in the installation of threaded rods into ceilings, and are available in a number of anchor sizes. As such, they are primarily consumed by the building construction industry. As such, when needing a flush mounted concrete anchor, the dropin anchor is useful. This is because it provides a tight and sturdy fastening for bolting or unbolting.
On top of this, the design of types of anchors allow it to reset itself if it slips or is not fully set into its fastening. If you’re looking to buy anchors of this type, visit its product page here.
Spring toggles, otherwise known as butterfly anchors, are screw anchors that include a spring-loaded wing design. Their design allows them to hang light loads from thin materials such as ceiling boards and drywalls. These anchor screws are an excellent choice, available in a number of anchor sizes, for builders that require a more concealed finish. Keep in mind, however, that the wings on the spring toggle must fold flat flat before insertion into its premade hole. If you’re looking to buy anchors of this type, visit our product page here.
