Complete solutions for each phase of the rebar doweling process.

anchors for rebar applications

Rebar dowels are used to brace the joints between two concrete elements. When the rebar is not being used to hold the concrete members together, post-installed anchor theory can be applied. This eliminates the need to embed the bar deep enough into the base material to develop the rebar for steel failure.

Hilti provides you, the engineer, specifier or contractor, with a complete solution for each phase of the rebar doweling process. To help design dowels for your project, utilize PROFIS Anchor, Hilti’s complimentary best-in-class anchor design software. Complete your design with adhesive anchor approvals and specification text.

When construction begins, you could spend time cleaning drilled holes or you could save that time and the associated labor costs by using Hilti’s SafeSet technology. The Hollow Drill Bit and VC20/40 vacuum completely eliminates the need to manually clean drilled holes.
