The longest and second-widest land tunnel is currently being constructed in the Netherlands in order to direct traffic in Amsterdam-Southeast below ground – reducing the level of noise and air pollution to the benefit of local residents. More than 1.7 million stainless steel (A4) fischer nail anchors FNA II were used to install fire protection plates to walls and ceilings in addition to other applications.
Wood constructions are particularly easy to anchor in concrete with fischer’s FAZ II bolt anchor, providing a secure load-bearing fixing. fischer provides the right product that meets the requirements of the user’s applications with the continuous development of its anchor family. Higher shear and load-bearing capacities and variable anchoring depths in large product segments have increased the range of applications.
The Himalaya’s first emergency bivouac was set up in 2019 at an altitude of 5080 metres. Locals and climbers have since used it for shelter in Nepal’s Rolwaling region. 24 cartridges of fischer’s injection mortar FIS SB High Speed 290 S were used in order to secure the emergency shelter in the midst of the mountains. They anchor the “legs” of the David Lama bivouac in the rock together with M 20 threaded rods.
The fixings specialist fischer has launched a new chipboard screw that combines technological knowhow and high-quality design with the fischer Power-Fast II. The screw guarantees high load-bearing capacity for all applications in anchors, softwood and hardwood, chipboards, as well as with short edge distances and metal fittings, all while being particularly quick and easy to install.
