There is some good information on hollow metal frame anchors right here on our site...just click the link in this post and you will go right to it. You can also simply click "Frames" in the links at the top of this page. The first 2 topics (pages) there deal with anchors and there are plenty of pics to help clear things up. If you want to discuss anything regarding anchors, please feel free to make a post and we can get started.

When installing a frame into an existing concrete wall, the frame will have to be "punch and dimpled" and have expansion bolts supplied. Make sure you get the correct size when you receive your product. The 5" bolts are good for a poured slab wall but if you try to use these in a block wall that is not filled inside the block, they will be a bit too long and the expansion part will extend into the hollow part of the block and will not grab anything. The 4" bolts are needed in this case.
