Fitting DeWALT’s Snake mechanical anchor

The Snake mechanical anchor is an internally threaded screw anchor.

Considerably faster to install than a drop-in anchor, it provides holding strength and complete grip over the anchor’s length.

This makes it suitable for M&E fixing applications, such as lighting systems and ventilation ducting.

The Snake anchor, which is self-tapping, can also be used in suspension applications.

Complete with a drill bit and a setting tool, the anchor can be installed quickly with a DeWALT power tool.

It is available with M8 and M10 internal threads; an M12 option is also available for heavier loads.

DeWALT’s range of internally threaded DM drop-in anchors have been designed for anchoring electrical fittings and ventilation systems.

These anchors carry F120 fire resistance, ETA option 7 approval for uncracked concrete and option 6 approval for cracked concrete.

DeWALT’s other heavy duty mechanical anchors include its PTB-PRO throughbolts and its FHS sleeve anchors for masonry and concrete substrates.

The DeWALT Tapper-Pro concrete screws and the DeWALT Zip-It plasterboard fixings, meanwhile, are classed as lighter duty products.
