Tilt-up Panel Anchors
Download this 3-part specification guide text to specify wall panel anchors by Connect-EZ.
Shop-fabricated steel components to eliminate field welding of structural connections for tilt-up or precast panels, columns, and structural steel.
As the construction industry evolves, so do the methods of building structures. Two of the most popular methods for building walls and other structures are precast and tilt-up panels. Precast panels are precast off-site and transported to the construction site, while tilt-up panels are cast on-site and then lifted into place. However, both methods require secure installation, which can be challenging.
This is where Connect-EZ wall panel anchors come in. Connect-EZ offers the ultimate solution for precast and tilt-up panels with their Panel Anchor System. A pre-assembled anchor is embedded in the concrete panel during the manufacturing process. This system eliminates the need for drilling or welding on-site and allows for easy and secure installation of the panels.
Benefits for Precast Panels
- Easy installation: Eliminates the need for on-site drilling or welding. This saves time and money, making the installation process faster and more efficient.
- Improved safety: On-site drilling or welding can be dangerous and can lead to accidents. Connect-EZ Panel Anchor System eliminates the risk of accidents, making the installation process safer for workers.
- Strong and secure: Provides a strong and secure connection between the precast panel and the structure. This ensures that the panel remains in place, even in high-wind or seismic conditions.
Benefits for Tilt-Up Panels
- Easy and accurate placement: Allows for easy and accurate placement of the tilt-up panel. The anchor ensures that the panel is placed in the correct position, eliminating the need for adjustments on-site.
- Increased efficiency: Saves time and money by eliminating the need for on-site drilling or welding. This makes the installation process more efficient and reduces labor costs.
- Improved safety: On-site drilling or welding can be dangerous and can lead to accidents. Eliminates the risk of accidents, making the installation process safer for workers.
American Concrete Institute’s code requirement (ACI 318-14, 220.127.116.11(b)) requires 10,000 pounds tension connections between concrete wall panels and foundations.
