English to German translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / safety ladders
English term or phrase:expansion plug
The back post of the ladder is installed in special anchor brackets which allow free thermal expansion of the ladder. The anchor brackets are vertically aligned and attached to the wall using M12 expansion plugs or chemical anchors.
Explanation: I think, considering the given (high-end) alternative of chemical anchors, that the author could actually mean expansion bolts, not mere plugs, assuming that we're talking about massive walls here.
LEO and Ernst give Spreizhülsenanker, I know them personally (analogous to the Dutch terminology) as Keilbolzen.
Maybe you should check with the client.
