Sammys threaded rod anchors from ITW Buildex are known for the time-saving patented solutions for threaded rod anchoring into a range of categories for construction. Sammys capabilities have opened doors for a number of uses including fire protection, electrical, HVAC, piping and others. Recent new product development indicates many are taking advantage of Sammys design flexibility and cost savings.
The new vertical design of the Sammys Pole Tool now comes fully assembled. Designed for working in tight spaces, through the ceiling grid, or with work involving high vaulted ceilings, it’s available in two telescoping sizes – one extends from 4 to 12 feet and the other from 6 to 18 feet – and removes the need for scaffolding, ladders or lifts. The newly redesigned Sammys Pole Tool makes it much easier and less time-consuming for crews to install and hang threaded rod anchors into wood, steel and concrete. Time studies have shown using Sammys can result in labor savings of more than 25 percent, according to the company’s marketing director.
In addition to installing into a wide range of substrates, the models are also able to accommodate installation vertically, horizontally, or at an angle up to 90 degrees. Installation takes about half the time compared to three-step drop-in wedge or multi-piece hardware methods. The concrete Sammys requires pre-drilling and offers Advanced Threadform Technology from Tapcon screws, which provide teeth at intervals on alternating threads and allows it to grip into concrete with outstanding holding power that traditional threads can’t duplicate. Wood and steel Sammys will install directly into the substrate.
