Fixing Sockets

We recommend fixing sockets only for fixing purposes in which no general approval certificate is necessary.

Socket Dowel with cross hole

A reinforcement bar has to be inserted through the cross hole thus a safe transmission of the static forces into the concrete is guaranteed. Load capacity specified (in axial direction) is calculated for concrete compressive strength of 25 N/mm2.

Through the nailing plate the PFEIFER Socket Dowels can be nailed to wooden formwork. A reinforcement bar has to be inserted through the cross hole thus a safe transmission of the static forces into the concrete is guaranteed.
Load capacity specified (in axial direction) is calculated for concrete compressive strength of 25 N/mm2.

Socket Dowels with Angular End
Socket Dowels with Angular End

PFEIFER Socket Dowels with angular end transfer forces directly into the concrete without additional reinforcing steels. The angular end anchors itself into the concrete by means of form closure. The required concrete compressive strength is at least 25 N/mm².

Fixing Sockets with crimped end give proof of excellent loading capacities in
the most varied fields of application. The crimped end of the Socket Dowel
transfers the force into the concrete by form closure. The load bearing capacity specified is calculated with a safety factor of γ≥5 and for concrete strength of 25 N/mm2.

Socket Dowel with waved end and nail plate

PFEIFER Socket Dowels can be attached to wooden formwork simply and efficiently using the nail plate. The crimped end of the PFEIFER Socket Dowel transfers the forces safely into the concrete by form closure. The values are valid for concrete with compressive strength of 25 N/mm2.

Nail Disc

Socket Dowels are fastened easily to wooden or plastic formwork by means of the PFEIFER Nail Disc. PFEIFER Cover Caps are used to seal Socket Dowels if they are cast in recessed using PFEIFER NailDiscs. They are designed for a permanent and even surfaced sealing. If there is any corrosive atmosphere the stainless steel type should be used. In order to preserve the socket dowels we recommend to lubricate it.

Polyamide Sockets

Polyamide Sockets are designed to offer a simple and cost effective method of fixing components to finished precast concrete units as an alternative to more time consuming post drilled fixings and cast in channel. The new Polyamide Sockets offer a secure and positive engagement through being completely incapsulated by concrete when in the desired position.

Nail Plugs for Polyamide Sockets

Nail Caps are employed to fasten Polyamide Sockets to wooden formwork.

Fixing Screws

PFEIFER Fixing Screws are a fast and safe way to fix polyamide sockets precisely and at the exact angle onto formworks.
