ATLAS BOLT Press Release


As part of its extensive range of concrete and masonry fixings, Samac has launched the Atlas concrete bolt: a one piece, fast, efficient and cost effective solution for any concrete fixing job. 

Atlas Bolts are a straightforward and effective alternative to traditional concrete fixings with high tensile self-tapping technology, offering quick and easy “drill and screw” installation in a wide variety of construction substrates including concrete, block, brick, timber, marble, and stone. The Atlas Bolt is ideal for a wide variety of construction fixings tasks across any number of trades from plumbers and electricians to fencing and roofing contractors.

The Samac Atlas Bolt is the result of extensive testing and provides market leading load performance with low expansion forces, making it an efficient and effective alternative to chemical anchors. This is particularly pertinent for temporary structures as the Atlas Bolt is completely removable.

Unlike mechanical expansion anchors, the Atlas Bolt keys into the base material for the entire depth and diameter of the hole, not just at the base, thanks to ten sharp thread-forming teeth that ensure the most secure connection in the substrate. This reduces high energy forces within the concrete allowing close anchor spacing and near-to edge anchor locations. The Samac Atlas Bolt is manufactured from carbon, hardened steel with Boron.

Samac is a specialist nails, screws and fixings distributor based in Essex with one of the widest ranges of products in the trade. Established since 2004, Samac supplies builders, timber, roofing and fencing merchants with a comprehensive range of more than 5000 products that is now so much more than the nails for which the company first became known.
