The Sammy Express anchor is designed for use in metal roof decks and in many instances can replace the use of strut for suspending cable tray, j hooks, access points and more.  The Sammy Express anchor is easy to install.  The required install tool includes a drill covered by a sleeve that contains the driver.  You can click here to see a video of the process.  After you drill the hole, slide the driver back on the tool and install the Sammy Express anchor.  The tool will collapse the anchor behind the roof deck making a secure installation.  Now simply add your threaded rod and suspend to desired height.

The Savings.  Now here is where your savings come in.  Let’s assume you need to hang a couple of threaded rods to support a cable tray or just an access point.  First off, if you have been spanning the bar joist with a $20 piece of strut, adding a couple of clamps to pin it in place, then a couple of spring nuts, you have a cost of around $25 in parts.  Secondly, you have the labor of driving back and forth with your lift from one bar joist to the other to complete the fastening.  With the Sammy Express anchor, you will need 2 anchors, that’s it, to get to the same installation point.  You are in one spot, drilling two small holes and installing two anchors.  Install time probably about 2 minutes, it will take you longer to spot the location than set the anchors.  Total anchor cost under $8.  Yes the install tool will set you back a little, but you will never regret it.

The Sammy Express anchors have both UL and FM Listings.  Holding power is fairly impressive with an ultimate pullout of  over 1,000 so they can handle a wide range of applications in the data cable and security fields.  Click here for more data.  The Sammy Express anchor is available to handle 1/4″ for vertical mounting and 3/8″ for vertical, horizontal and swivel applications.  Find them on line at ConstructionFastening.Net
