REPLACING LAUNDRY RACKS, HONG KONG
Using Hilti’s dust cleaning SafeSet technology
Hong Kong’s Housing Authority oversees more than three quarters of a million apartments and houses more than 2 million people – that’s housing around 30% of the population of Hong Kong.
In Hong Kong residents of flats usually dry their laundry on racks hung from their windows or balconies.
The Hong Kong Housing Authority decided to replace the existing laundry poles with stainless steel laundry racks.
The challenge was how to clean so many holes safely, at great heights and to avoid dust with so many people living in each block.
OUR HILTI SOLUTION
Our Hilti SafeSet technology was chosen for the job, using HIT-HY 200 chemical anchor and HIT- ZR stainless steel anchor rods.
Our Hilti HIT-Z anchor rods have a cone shaped helix and work as a torque-controlled anchor, so they can fasten even in uncleaned holes.
This helped to speed up installation while also ensuring a good fastening strength.
