Bossong, the Italian anchoring and fixing specialist, has added the new CLS-CE high performance concrete screw to its existing CLS line, following extensive new materials and applications research.

The screws, which can also be adjusted after an installation, are suited to applications such as fixing shelves, base plates, and railings, as well as anchoring other equipment, beams or
