The grout-injecting VoidSpan Port Anchor (patent pending) is a stainless steel anchor that can span internal voids to tie masonry together while providing an integral port through which voids can be inspected, cleaned, pre-dampened and grouted. Our anchors come in a wide variety of types and configurations to meet the specific needs of your project..
Unique Features of the VoidSpan Port Anchor
Three Types of Anchors
Anchors are defined by series type, capacity and “A”, “B” and “C” dimensions that come from field measurements. We provide length calculation sheets with order forms, and engineering guidelines.
Open Shank Anchors
for collar joint applications that require cleaning, flushing and use of a fine flowable grout (such as VoidSpan PHLc Grout). The standard anchors provide up to 5,000 lb confinement tension and up to 3,000 lb “rolling shear” capacity (even discounting adhesion of the grout).
Rod Shank Anchors
for masonry consolidation and crack bridging with micro-fine, post-tensioning duct type, or fine flowable grouts where cleaning and flushing from the anchor is not required. Our standard anchors provide up to 7,500 lb confinement tension capacity.
Our “HC”-Type anchors, by special order, can provide as much as 100,000 pound tension capacity.
Cintec Presstec Grout
is supplied with each anchor and must be used to fill the Cintec anchor socks. Any non-corrosive, non-metallic and ultra low-shrinkage grout can be used through the VoidSpan anchor port to fill the voids. Compatibility with the parent structure is critical.
