Removal of anchors and screws in concrete

To avoid possible accidents, it is essential to remove screws and anchors from concrete floors in all possible areas.


We work carefully on removing industrial screws and anchors from concrete floors. This is a preliminary step before carrying out our BECOSAN® treatment to harden and seal the floor and prevent future damage.


Industrial facilities of logistics, storage or production require storage shelves, heavy production machinery and movable elements, all correctly installed on the floor.

If it is necessary to renovate or modify the working area, or if there is even the possibility of selling an industrial building, all the elements installed in it must be dismantled.

The result is multiple screws and anchors in the concrete floor and holes as a result of the installation of these elements.

Therefore, it is essential the correct repair of these defects before starting any renovation works or transfer the property to a new owner or tenant.

In particular, when renovation work is started in warehouses or logistics centres, all anchors and screws are usually removed. This creates ideal conditions to proceed with repairs of holes and cracks.

Finally, the BECOSAN® treatment is carried out to make the floor ready for the reinstallation of new shelves or for any other industrial use.

The reasons why an owner or company decides to remove the anchors and screws from an industrial floor can be several. Among them, we mention some of the most common ones:

  • To increase the value of an industrial facility
  • By rental agreement clauses
  • For strategic decisions to change work areas
  • Upgrading of machinery and shelves
  • By legal regulation

The extraction or removal of screws and anchors from the concrete are common tasks in the renovation of industrial buildings.

Special care must be taken when removing them, as poorly executed work can damage the concrete, causing significant repair costs.


An industrial building usually offers a lot of space. This is normally occupied by industrial shelving and production machinery.

The floor is generally made of reinforced concrete, whether in warehouses, logistics spaces or production plants.

From time to time, changes in usage or distribution of work areas often occur. These changes affect both the present equipment and the way it is fixed to the floor.

In most cases screws and anchors are used, as they are very easy to install. Even their future removal is not a big problem.

Space for traffic of vehicles and employees must be generous and cannot be compromised. It is important to secure the structures and maintain safe distances for the movement of vehicles and people.


It is not only necessary to use anchors and screws to fix industrial shelves and machinery, but they also offer several functional and aesthetic advantages.

In order to clarify what the main benefits are, we have compiled below those we consider most relevant.


They are an economical option for fixing industrial shelves, compared to other methods for fixing shelves and supports.

No expensive tools or components are required for placement or removal, such as steel frames.

In addition, by fixing the machinery to the floor, the noise generated by its vibrations is considerably reduced, improving the working environment.

Easy to install and remove

As a general rule, a quick installation of industrial shelves or to change their location for logistical reasons is necessary.

Both fixing and removing anchors and screws in concrete floors are considered procedures that are not very complicated to perform.

In addition, no complex equipment or experienced workforce is required.

Earthquake resistant

One of the main concerns in areas where there the risk of earthquakes exists, is the correct storage of products and materials of high weight that are found in shelves at great heights.

In the event of an earthquake, products found at heights of more than ten metres can cause the structure to swing, with the consequent danger to the safety of the installation.

Having good screws and anchors in these structures helps to better resist earthquakes and allows the structures we have in our industrial buildings to withstand horizontal movements.


Anchoring of industrial shelves: industrial shelves are created to support a large weight, sometimes thousands of kilograms, and they usually hold a significant part of the capital invested by the company.

The more complex and larger the storage system, the more important the safety provided by the screws and anchors in the concrete becomes.

In addition, when a forklift places or removes products from the shelves, it produces a slight movement, which in the long term, may affect the stability of the structures or produce deformations in some elements.

Therefore, proper shelves anchoring will redistribute the loads and prevent possible future deformations.

Anchoring of production machinery: frequently the machinery used in factories consists of oscillating motors. This generates vibrations during the operation of such machinery, which are transmitted to other equipment and machinery.

In the long term, these movements can cause major malfunctions and damage.

Therefore, the best way to secure the capital invested in machinery is through the installation of the above-mentioned anchors, which are fixed on concrete bases, located above ground level.
