Masonry: Questions from our OnlineSeminar

Our academy trainer talks about fixings in masonry.

Versatile, flexible and the perfect counterpart to structural concrete. Masonry is without a doubt one of the structural all-rounders. But planning, designing and implementing anchors in masonry occasionally creates its own challenges. We addressed this construction material in our OnlineSeminar series and provide answers to participants’ questions below.

The advantages of BIM put into practice – whether in a factory hall or tunnel

A massive wood and steel construction spans 50 metres across an enormous factory hall without a single support at the centre of the room makes an impressive sight! And also a challenge when it comes to installing ventilation and cable systems. “It’s almost impossible without a BIM model”, says Jan Popma, Technical Manager for the […]

No such thing as impossible: fischer technology’s most extreme areas of application

The water is ice cold with zero visibility. When the research diver Markus Brand places fixings he is usually located up to ten metres below the sea surface. 36 tetrapods (concrete blocks weighing six tonnes) were sank in the North Sea off the coast of Heligoland, for instance. Various high-sensitivity sensors and metal sample receptacles […]

Finding the right fixing all around the world with fischer FIXPERIENCE!

A construction engineer does calculations with the fischer FIXPERIENCE design software.

One large-scale construction project is underway in Beijing, another has started in Dubai. Both projects require a steel construction to be connected to a concrete foundation. The civil engineer knows which cutting force to expect and must now calculate the right anchoring. The structural analysis programme won’t get them far, however. fischer offers its complimentary […]

Safe support at the edge of the abyss: When everything hangs from an anchor

An international team of speleologists is on the right track in Upper Austria: the deepest cave in Europe. Again and again they go into the depths of the Dachstein mountains. Especially here, where the trail leads vertically down and can be extremely cold, clammy, slippery and wet, secure rope fixings are vital.
