Which concrete screws are the best?
Broadly speaking there are two types of concrete screw – those that have official approvals and those that don’t. We would usually recommend using ETA-approved concrete screws.
A European Technical Assessment submits anchors to a rigorous testing process and as a result will set out what applications the anchor is suitable for, it’s application limits, performance characteristics and how it should be installed. The ETA documentation provides all the guidance and reassurance the installer needs that the concrete screw is up to the job.
