Asphalt Anchors Group (AAG) has developed Bolthold anchors, which are designed to be a reliable way to attach structures directly to asphalt.
- Even in thin asphalt (2"), the pull resistance is up to 2,500 lbs.
- Units are installed flush with the asphalt surface
- Internal thread accepts a bolt that is used to attach the structure to the anchor
- Anchors are available with either 3/8" or 7/16" threads
- Anchors bond to asphalt using an epoxy or cement (generically called "grout")
- An oversize hole is drilled in the asphalt and filled with a fast curing grout, and the anchor is dropped in; displaced grout is pushed into the crevices in the asphalt and in the gravel layer below, binding the anchor on the one side, and to the asphalt on the other side
- Mount anything from runway plane arresting systems and jet blast deflectors to signs, bike racks and car ports
