As building materials advance technologically, anchor manufacturers need to know more about their products and how they will perform with varying materials and under varying conditions.

Element offers a full scope of services designed to establish the tested load values of concrete and masonry anchors—including chemical, mechanical, screw, channel, cast-in specialty, and power-driven anchors. More than just a laboratory, Element engineers are actively involved in the anchor bolt testing industry, developing equipment and procedures to conduct cracked concrete anchor testing, a test now required by building standards nationwide.
