ANCHORS > Drop-in
anchors are internally threaded, deformation controlled expansion anchors with a preassembled expander plug,
suitable for flush mount applications in solid base materials. The anchor is set by driving the expansion plug
towards the bottom of the anchor using the setting tool. The Lipped Drop-In (DIAL) features a lip at the top of the
anchor body that keeps the top of the anchor flush with the concrete. This eliminates the need for precisely
drilled hole depths and allows for easier flush installation, consistent embedment and uniform rod

The Drop-In anchor has been tested in
accordance with ASTM E488 Standard Test Methods for Strength of Anchors in Concrete and Masonry
Anchor Setting Tool Product Data:
Drill a hole in the base material using the
proper diameter carbide drill bitas specifi ed in the table. Drill the hole to the specifi ed embedment depthplus 3
to 5mm for flush mounting. Blow the hole clean using compressedair. Overhead holes do not need to be blown
CAUTION- oversize holes will make it diffi cult to set the anchor and will reduce the anchor’s load
Insert anchor into hole. Tap with hammer until fl
ush against the surface.
Using the proper sized Drop-In setting tool
(DIAST); drive the expander plug towards the bottom of the anchor until shoulder of setting tool makes
contact with the top of the anchor.

Installed in Normal-Weight Concrete
The allowable loads listed are based on a safety
factor of 4.0.
Allowable loads may not be increased for short-term
loading due to wind or seismic forces.
Refer to allowable load adjustment factors for edge
distance and spacing.
The minimum concrete thickness is 1.5 x times the

Load-Adjustment Factors for Drop-In (Carbon and Stainless Steel) and Lipped Drop-In (Carbon
Steel) Anchors in Normal-Weight Concrete: Edge Distance and Spacing, Tension and Shear
How to use these charts:
The following tables are for reduced edge distance
Locate the anchor size to be used for either a
tension and/or shear load application.
Locate the edge distance (Cact) or spacing (Sact)
at which the anchor is to be installed.
The load adjustment factor (fc or fs) is the
intersection of the row and column.
Multiply the allowable load by the applicable load
Reduction factors for multiple edges or spacing are
* See Notes Below
E = Embedment depth (mm).
Sact = actual spacing distance at which anchors are
Scr = critical spacing distance for 100% load
Smin = minimum spacing distance for reduced load
fs = adjustment factor for allowable load at actual
fscr = adjustment factor for allowable load at
critical spacing distance. fscr is always =
fsmin = adjustment factor for allowable load at
minimum spacing distance.
fs = fsmin + [(1 - fsmin) (Sact - Smin) / (Scr -
