Anchoring Bolts in Concrete
Featured Product: Anchor Cement
- The concrete or masonry area to receive the anchoring bolt must be sound and capable of supporting the fixtures (minimum 3,000 psi).
- Ensure the area is wide and deep enough to provide proper support.
- Diameter of hole should be 3 to 4 times the diameter of the fixture being placed and the depth of the hole must be 8 to 12 times the fixtures diameter.
- The area receiving the material should never be less than 2” deep and 2” wide.
- A minimum clearance of 1” is required around the fixture being anchored and 4” from any edges.
- Mix Anchor Cement according to the directions on the container.
- This is a rapid setting product. Do not mix more material than can be placed in 10 minutes.
- If mixing less than a full container, mix 4-parts Anchor Cement with 1-part water.
- Pour the Anchor Cement into the cavity, filling it completely.
- When used in an environment where the patch will get wet, overfill the hole slightly.
- As the material begins to stiffen, gently slope the material so water moves away from the patch.
Anchor Cement will set to a very hardened state within twenty minutes.

Calculated results will reflect how many bags are needed for Block and Brick.
Enter the number of bricks (8" x 2" x 4") or blocks (8" x 8" x16") in the box below that you plan to use for your project. The calculator will then tell you the number of bags you need based on the different size of bags we carry.
This calculator is based on a 3/8" mortar joint. All yields are approximate and do not include an allowance for waste, uneven subgrade or any other variations from the joint size and brick and block sizes noted above.
Results will change if form of measurement is updated.
