The installation of dyna bolts for pallet racking should be installed using the racking manufacturers guide lines that have been predetermined by qualified engineers.
The dyna bolts are normally installed using the following procedure:
Using the holes in the base plate as a template, carefully drill holes using a hammer drill and masonry bit. The drill bit diameter should be the same diameter as the dyna bolt.
Insert the dyna bolt into the hole, be sure to place the washer and thread the nut a couple of turns. Not fully threading the nut protects the threads of the wedge anchor.
Insert the dyna bolt into each hole through the baseplate of the upright of the pallet racks.
Carefully hammer the anchors into each hole ensuring that they are installed to the desired depth.
Tighten all the nuts using a torque wrench to ensure they are tightened to the required torque value.
It is important to keep safety in mind and follow the pallet racking manufacturer’s instructions carefully. It is paramount that safety goggles are worn, handle all tools with extra care, and follow all technical specifications. This article is meant to serve as a basic overview of the steps for completing this project. Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions or consult a qualified expert like IRIA (Independent Racking Inspections & Audits).
