EBA approval for adhesive screw anchors
Following the approval by the German Federal Railway Office for the TOGE adhesive screw anchors in size M24 for the attachment of noise barriers posts on construction sites by the Deutsche Bahn there have been further approvals this year for sizes M12-M24 for use on engineering structures of the Deutsche Bahn in terms of RIL 804. The application applies to all dimensions in terms of fatigue loads of up to 5 million stress cycles. The approval encompasses potential applications such as the anchoring of bridge caps in new cap constructions or for the sustainable anchoring and attachment of kilometre and hectometre signals as well as antenna attachments. Additionally, the use of adhesive screw anchors as sustainable reinforcement in the areas of shear reinforcement, punching reinforcement and flexural tensile reinforcement are regulated by the approval.
