The main advantage of the new standard is that it compiles the design of various fastening systems and action categories into one key document. Therefore, the standard applies to both, the design of insertion parts (anchor channels and headed fasteners) as well as the design of post-installed fastenings (metal expansion anchors, undercut anchors, concrete anchors, bonded anchors and bonded expansion anchors).
Ever since spring 2019, the new standard EN 1992-4 has been in force throughout Europe for the design of concrete fixings. fischer's whitepaper tells you everything you need to know at a glance:
Verification is required to prove that a selected product is suitable for the required load in order to prevent an anchor from failing. This makes simple design software for planners, structural engineers and construction engineers an essential.
Whether it’s an architectural model, a structural model or a building services model: Building Information Modelling (BIM) is being used with increasing frequency in the construction industry. To begin with, a digital building model is designed that serves as the basis for the real construction. These precise models reduce potential errors in addition to costs. Further benefits include simpler collaboration with other compa-nies via cloud solutions as well as the constant and immediate availability of planning data on the con-struction site.
