Fixing sockets are commonly used in construction, particularly in precast concrete structures, to securely attach various components to the concrete. They are often used for attaching items such as handrails, signage, lighting fixtures, and machinery. Fixing sockets come in various shapes and sizes, and can be made from different materials such as stainless steel, galvanized steel, or other metals. They are typically designed to be inserted into pre-drilled holes in the concrete, with the threaded hole at the top to allow for the insertion of a bolt or other fastener.
One of the advantages of using fixing sockets is that they provide a strong and reliable anchor point that can withstand heavy loads and vibrations. They are also very versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications, from attaching small fixtures to supporting larger structural components. To ensure maximum strength and stability, it’s important to select the correct size and type of fixing socket for the specific application. Factors to consider include the size and weight of the component being attached, the load it will bear, and the conditions of the surrounding environment. Overall, fixing sockets are an essential component of many construction projects, providing a safe and reliable method for attaching components to concrete and other solid surfaces.

Fixing Socket With Cross Pin
Feature of Fixing Sockets
Precast-produced fixing socket transfer forces directly into the concrete without additional reinforcing steels. Forces are transferred via the cross pin. No additional reinforcement is necessary. The cross pin anchors itself into the concrete by means of form closure. The required concrete compressive strength is at least 25 N/mm2. We recommend fixing the socket only for fixings, for which general technical approval is not necessary. The fixing socket with a cross pin can be nailed to the formwork with the plastic nailing plate or it can be screwed through the formwork with a hexagonal screw. Lifting inserts are widely used in precast concrete construction for lifting purposes, such as lifting beams, panels, floor slabs, etc. The fixing sockets are inserted into the precast concrete elements for temporary anchoring purposes. After casting, the rod of the lifting insert is cut off during dismantling and replaced by a new one in the next use. This product can be made from carbon steel or stainless steel according to customers’ requirements. It has excellent tensile strength and corrosion resistance properties and thus is capable of lasting for a long time even in harsh environments. With its simple and easy installation, it has been widely used for lifting precast concrete elements.
