Overhead Chemical Anchors

Overhead Chemical Anchors

Overhead Chemical Anchors

In a recent thread (thread488-172652: Chemical Anchors and fire) a poster said that the use of chemical adhesive anchors in an overhead application is prohibited, but did not give any indication as to where it was prohibited or who prohibited it. I've contacted HILTI on several occasions and they gave specific recommendation for using epoxy in an overhead application.

This is the first I've heard that it is prohibited. Can anyone elaborate on this original post?

RE: Overhead Chemical Anchors

I don't believe it is prohibited -- just make sure that what you are using is applicable to the application.

Get with the mfg.

RE: Overhead Chemical Anchors

About a year ago, we had a Hilti rep here for a presentation. They're no prohibited but there are stringent code requirements.
