In 2002, Wilhelm Modersohn became aware of the SAF2304 (1.4362) material through Avesta in Sweden. In 2003 Modersohn introduced the first Lean Duplex steel for system products in the German market for fastening systems.
As an independent representative of fastening systems from the company Lutz from Wertheim, Wilhelm Modersohn sen. had recognised early on that there was a great demand in the market for fastenings in the area of masonry facades. In March 1970, he and two employees founded the company, which today has over 140 employees.
The MODERSOHN company produces various shaped and flat cuts from aluminum as laser cuts, water jet cuts or scissor cuts. The standard alloys, such as Al99, AlMg1 or AlMg3 are available at short notice.
MODERSOHN manufactures in stainless steel or normal steel (galvanized/primed) various anchor or weld-on plates with shear bolts, ribbed gate steel anchors (concrete ribbed steel anchors), cleats, threaded sleeves or anchor sleeves.
Anchor rods is a term derived from anchor technology for the fastening thread parts of composite mortar systems. As a rule, these are threaded ends with ends specially formed for composite mortar installation.
Anchor sleeves are thick-walled threaded sleeves or threaded sockets for higher load-bearing capacity, which in the construction industry often still have transverse mandrels or push-through reinforcement for better force introduction into the concrete.
The term anchor systems refers to all heavy-duty fixings designed by engineers according to a basic system which, in variants or standardised, supports, holds against tilting or reinforces the masonry walls.
The parapet anchor is a supporting or retaining attachment for façade cladding elements if these clearly protrude above the top floor ceiling of the building. The attika comes from the Greek and refers to an architectural element.
