Free standing Post for Gate. by Doug (Victoria, BC) I've been looking for a post anchor for a while now, that can be anchored to a concrete wall, as I need to put up a gate in my carport.
With post-installed anchors, one particular jobsite change may require abandoning a hole that has been drilled, leaving the final anchor location adjacent to the abandoned hole. When a hole for an anchor is drilled but never used, it essentially creates a large void in the concrete.
More than a dozen Hilti wedge-anchor designs bring an industry-earned reputation for performance, productivity and reliability to both temporary and permanent attachment in racking, shelving, metal attachment and other common concrete applications.
I am going to build 12'X16' awning (mounted at one end to my house) over the top of an existing concrete patio. I am wondering if the 6x6 post anchor will be a good solution on a concrete patio slab. I would prefer to sink 6X6 posts into the ground but that's too far out from the house so I'm looking for the best way to attach them to my slab.
Post and Column Bases secure the bottom of posts or columns to concrete and are perfect for decks or patio covers. Models are available for attaching to existing hardened concrete, wet concrete, as well as wood. The AB series also offers adjustability around the anchor bolt to achieve optimum post ...
However, looking at my existing deck, it occurred to me that it might be better to use anchors so that if I ever have to replace the post I can do so easily? I currently have a post that is bent and seriously cracked that is using an post base, so I can see how convenient it would be if I was to replace it.
But in many cases, post-installed anchors make more sense, since the locations may not be known so precisely prior to concrete placement. The designer then will select the anchor based on several factors, as required by the 2006 International Building Code.
The first method you can choose to anchor the post to the concrete slab is to use an adjustable anchor. If you want to secure the anchor to a concrete footing, you need to lock the fix vertical component into place, before attaching the anchor.
b) The thickness of concrete, where an anchor is embedded should be adequate to resist driving forces during anchor seating – typically, the minimum concrete thickness should be 1.5 times the depth of embedment.
The concrete can be 4 to 6 inches above the ground to keep an adequate distance between the post and earth. The footing also is a better anchor for seismic design if that is a concern.
