Safety should always be the top priority for any type of project that is being created. Not just during the design and completion of the structure but for the long term. Anyone around that structure should be safe if the design was sound and stability was taken into consideration.
Offering additional stability is a great way to improve overall safety features. In some locations and with certain types of projects, it is going to be mandatory. This can be accomplished with a very specific type of drilling into stones, concrete, and other such structures. It is safe and it won’t cause damages to the surrounding areas of the structure from the vibrating when used correctly.
The Equipment You Need
In order to complete such tasks, you will need to have anchor drills. They will cut the holes where you need them, up to 60 inches in diameter. This makes it easy for you to add an anchor so more weight can be supported. Most of these drills are lightweight which makes it easy for them to be moved around to any location you need, saving you time and money.
They are simple to operate too. Most of them feature a trigger on the handle. It looks similar to a small drill you have at home but on a much larger scale. Many general contractors find this to be a valuable tool they use regularly to complete a variety of jobs. There are several types of anchor drills so you need to determine which one is right for a particular job.
The right equipment can also help the work to get done in far less time. Being efficient on a worksite saves labor hours and it can shave days off of the overall time it will take for the job to be finished. The right equipment also reduces the risk of not passing inspections and the work needing to be re-done in order to be in compliance.
Accessories to get more Use
You don’t have to buy new anchor drills for each job either. That would be unnecessary and very costly. Instead, you should think about getting a good array of accessories that can be fitted with the anchor drill. There are various anchor setting tools that work well and help you customize your work with ease. There are also those that work to offer threaded studs or spindle extensions for those longer lengths where you need to anchor and then secure with heavy duty nuts and bolts.
Make sure anyone who uses such tools and accessories to complete a job has the right training. They shouldn’t be using them without knowledge of what they can do and or how to secure other pieces of materials once the holes are completed. There should be a supervisor on site who is checking the work to be sure it is accurate.
