Industry safety standards recommend 1/4 of ultimate load.
NOTE: A dash (-) in the chart above indicates no test result is currently available.
An "F" in the anchor name (e.g., AF5) means that the anchor has a flange and should be used if you think the wall might have a cavity in it.
No "F" in the name (e.g., A5) means that the anchor has no flange and is flush-mount and suitable for push-through installations.
