The Panel-Lok® panel re-anchoring system is an easy to use, mechanically-activated, economical method to re-anchor existing stone panel veneers to concrete, solid and/or hollow masonry, and steel substrates. The process eliminates the need to remove existing stone by providing a corrosion-resistant tie assembly.
The components are manufactured of AISI Type 300 series austenitic stainless steel and ASTM Type 360 brass. The combination provides for long-term durability and structural stability for the design life of the structure.
The Panel-Lok® component systems consist of mechanically-activated expansion elements that are situated in the back-up material. They are either torque activated or hammer set which provides a method of inspection for the backup connection. The backup anchorage system and the veneer connection method develop performance characteristics similar to the original stone anchoring requirements. The expanders are integrated with a stainless steel shaft and various hex or screw attached heads for the stone veneer connection.
The anchors can be field tested by either direct tension or torque after installation. The Panel-Lok® anchors are manufactured of applicable ASTM materials. They are available in a variety of lengths, and can be made to special lengths and materials upon request.
Use where there is a need to re-attach existing stone panel veneers less than three inches thick that require additional restraint or support to resist live and dead loads. These Panel-Lok anchors accommodate bilateral live-load resistance, uni-directional forces, support loading, and combinations of all types. The backup anchorage system may dictate the style of anchorage required.
