Blast-Resistant Window Anchors - Cintec America Inc. - Facility Management Product Release
Cintec America Inc.
| Company information
Cintec America’s Blast Window Retention Anchor System offers a customized solution for various applications and masonry substrates to provide maximum resistance to explosions.
After an initial on-site assessment, the anchor is fashioned from a steel bar enclosed in a mesh fabric sleeve, which is then inserted into the masonry and connected to the frames. A specially-developed, non-polymer, cementitious grout is then injected into the sleeve under low pressure. The grout then fuses with the mesh, expands, and shapes itself around the steel to fit the space.
Cintec uses dry or low-volume wet diamond drilling techniques to reduce or even eliminate water damage associated with conventional concrete wet drilling.
