There are several different types of Metal Frame Anchors. The types of hollow metal frame anchors include Multipurpose combination anchors, Z-Clip anchors, and Wood stud anchors.
Wood stud anchors
Wood stud anchors can be used for many reasons. They are commonly used in interior wall construction, but they can also be used on metal or hollow-metal door frames. Although they vary in appearance, the main purpose is to secure the wood studs in place. Wood studs are most commonly used for interior walls, and contractors will often frame out exterior openings as well.
When installing wood stud anchors, always follow the manufacturer's instructions. Make sure that the frame is square, level and square before installing any anchors. Install base anchors on the jambs and frame faces, and make sure the stud is square to the frame. If the frame is metal, install screws from the back of the stud into the Z anchor or frame throat.
There are three types of metal stud anchors. The universal stud anchor is the most common type. These anchors are welded into the frame, and are available in many different sizes. Steel stud anchors are similar, but are typically stronger. They are used for heavy-duty commercial frames.
When installing a double-egress frame, follow the same procedure as described in Section 7. Make sure that the door jambs are square and level and the anchors are welded to the metal frame.
Multipurpose combination anchors
Multipurpose combination metal frame anchors are a great choice for new construction projects. They can be used on both wood and metal studs and can help you avoid future construction problems. Whether you are mounting an entire structure or a door frame, these anchors can save your day. They are commonly used on hollow metal door frames. The name comes from the fact that they are mounted on the inside of the frame.
When constructing a building, Z-Clip metal frame anchors can help you to ensure that your structure will stay secure. These anchors are usually shaped like a Z and are used on welded hollow metal frames. The anchor is screwed into a metal clip at the throat of the frame and then welded in.
The most popular use of Z-Clips is to hang large-format projects. The clips are wedged together to lock a panel in place and are simple to install. In addition, they allow for easy future dismounting, changing, and removal. They also allow for an environmentally-friendly installation because they are factory-finished off site. They are also made of aluminum and are lightweight and durable, making them an ideal choice for a wide variety of projects.
When installing Z-Clips on a wall panel, it is important to check the panel placement on the wall using a shop drawing. This can help you check the strength of the frame by establishing the exact placement of the "plane" on the panel. It is also helpful to mark the positions of the Z-Clips on stone panels.
