Anchor Channel

Façade attachment to steel framed buildings

anchors for façade applications

Attaching façade elements such as glass and sun shades to the steel structural components of a building is a unique application requiring specialized anchoring products. The fastening aspect of fascia design can pose a variety of challenges that add to the complexities of the design, installation and post-construction phases of the build.

Whether the project is new construction or renovation requiring immediate loading, close edge distance or high loads, Hilti’s versatile portfolio of mechanical anchors, adhesive anchors and embeds and cast-in anchor channels contains the solution for your jobsite needs. We have a dedicated façade team to assist with the design, delivery and installation of these anchoring elements to ensure that you can focus on other important aspects of the project.
