THE BAUTEX WALL ANCHOR

ABS PLASTIC ATTACHMENT ACCESSORY

The Bautex Wall Anchor BWA 22-10 is a rigid ABS plas­tic attach­ment anchor for use with the 10-inch Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem to attach light- to medi­um-load con­struc­tion assem­blies. The Bau­tex Wall Anchor will sup­port grav­i­ty loads up to 130 pounds and up to 56 pounds with­draw­al force per attach­ment point when attach­ing with a 2 inch #6 coarse-thread dry­wall screw.

Typical Wall Anchor Uses

The Bau­tex Wall Anchor can be used to attach light- to medi­um-duty items to the Bau­tex Block wall includ­ing:

  • Inter­sect­ing inte­ri­or framed walls
  • Tracks for rain screen wall cladding sys­tems
  • Fur­ring for exte­ri­or sid­ing
  • Fur­ring or fram­ing sys­tems for inte­ri­or dry­wall
  • Sup­port ledgers for mount­ing mill­work

INSTALLING THE BAUTEX WALL ANCHOR

In areas where mate­ri­als need to be fas­tened to the exte­ri­or or inte­ri­or face of the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem, Bau­tex Wall Anchors are installed pri­or to con­crete being poured in the wall. The anchors are installed so that the attach­ment plate on the end of the anchor is ham­mered flush with the face of the wall, and the tip of the anchor pen­e­trates into the hol­low core area of the Bau­tex Block.

The Bau­tex Wall Anchor is installed as fol­lows:

  1. Deter­mine anchor posi­tion as spec­i­fied in the con­struc­tion doc­u­ments and mark each loca­tion where a Bau­tex Wall Anchor will be installed.
  2. Check that the anchors line up with the cen­ter of either a hor­i­zon­tal or ver­ti­cal core of the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem, and ensure that the oval cutout in the shaft of the anchor is ful­ly ori­ent­ed in the core area and will be cap­tured by the con­crete when poured. THE SHAFT OF THE BAUTEX WALL ANCHOR MUST BE INSTALLED IN A VERTICAL ORIENTATION.
  3. Gen­tly ham­mer the anchor into the wall at the attach­ment point using a rub­ber mal­let. Con­firm that attach­ment spac­ing match­es the project spec­i­fi­ca­tions. Be sure not to over- pen­e­trate, and that the anchor face is flush with the sur­face of the wall.
  4. Imme­di­ate­ly after the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem is poured with con­crete and while the con­crete is still work­able, visu­al­ly inspect all wall anchors and rein­sert any that have moved to ensure the face plate is flush with the wall.
