When you need to keep your project in place, Simpson offers a range of anchoring adhesives, mechanical anchors, direct fasteners and restorative solutions to get the job done. Their epoxy-based adhesive anchors work well to provide extra security for rebar, threaded rod, smooth dowels and many more options into a wide range of base materials, even in overly-wet concrete. Their mechanical anchors are able to deal with a wide range of substrate materials and circumstances, while their wide range of powder-actuated direct fasteners help you get the job done quickly. When you’re just trying to fix what’s broken in your structure, Simpson’s restorative products provide a range of two-part injectable epoxies and ties that help keep it together longer.Solid FastenersYour project is only as strong as the fasteners that hold it together.
