  • Compensation of tolerances of the structure
  • Fixtures are removable and tools
HMPR-CECast-in Channels are rolled channels with swaged studs that are cast into concrete structures. This system method provides easy and safe fixations to structures such as concrete slabs.

The anchor channels are supplied with a filler strip within the channel slot, which prevents concrete ingress during casting. After the concrete is dried, the fillers are removed from the channels leaving an open slot on the wall for fixture connections.

Apart from the standard range of anchor channels bespoke design and manufacturing of anchor channels is done for areas where standard types cannot be used. Special cast-in channels are preferred for areas where there are limitations such as complex corner applications, low slab thicknesses, reduced edge spaces and higher design loads.

HTB T Head Bolts and Lock Nuts are available to allow secure and easy connections on to the anchor channels. The use of this system is applicable in a wide range of construction works.

Channel profiles available for casting are :28/15, 38/17, 40/22, 40/25, 41/22, 49/30, 50/30, 52/34, 54/33, 72/49

Features of HMPR-CE Anchor Channels

  • HMPR-CE Cast - in Channels are designed in accordance with the design rules according to CEN / TS 1992-4-3.
  • HMPR-CE Anchor channels allow users working with low edge distances.
  • Load resistances can be improved with higher concrete strength class on loading in shear.
  • Shear and tension resistance of concrete can be improved with additional reinforcements.

ETA -17/0549 & DIBT Z-21.4-2038

The European Technical Approval ETA- 13/0399 for the HMPR-CE Anchor Channels was issued by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt) in 2013.

This new approval is valid on all states of Europe. An ETA catalog is available which includes the dimensioning of the anchor channels in accordance with the new European standards series CEN/TS 1992-4-3 "Design of fastenings for use in concrete - Anchor Channels."

Application examples for Cast-in Channels

Anchor Channels are widely used for the installation of curtain walls. Unitised panels with materials such as glass and natural stone already incorporated are preassembled into the curtain wall panels. These panels are erected to the building elevation and are quickly and easily fixed on to the anchor channels using T head bolts and special brackets.
Brick walls are installed using special support brackets that are fixed on to the anchor channels using T Head Bolts. A continuous anchor channel embedded into the concrete wall provided high adjustability and enables quick installation of the masonry brackets. Cast - in Channels cover the load capacity requirements for the brickwork installation.
Anchor channels are used for a variety of construction applications that require attachments made on to concrete. Pipe and duct installation of electrical wiring is the most common applications that are made using anchor channels.
This prefabricated concrete industry is among the fastest-growing fields within the construction industry. The use of anchor channels enhances the fast and economical solution that is offered using prefabricated concrete panels. Speed and security are the benefits of using anchor channels.
