Asphalt Anchors Corp. offers free calculators for installing fences and signs on asphalt

Free online calculators guide design of cost-effective placements. 

Two innovative calculators released by Asphalt Anchors Corp. (AAC) help builders save time, money and effort by determining the strongest, most cost-efficient anchors for mounting fences and signposts on asphalt surfaces.

The fence calculator, designed by the company’s President Rudor (Dori) Teich, considers its physical aspects (such as fence density, height, spacing between posts and the size of mounting plates), as well as external factors such as maximum wind speeds and a climber’s weight on the fence. It is the perfect partner tool for AAC’s line of BoltHold asphalt anchors. The second calculator uses a similar methodology for signpost installation.

“I’m very excited about what these calculators mean for our customers. For the first time a contractor can feel comfortable mounting fences and signs to asphalt, without damaging the asphalt,” Teich said. “Customers and contractors can speed up installation and save money, resulting in a strong, long lasting fence and sign installation.”

BoltHold anchors are uniquely designed to secure any object to an asphalt surface. With many anchor sizes and varieties, objects from tents to speedbumps to outdoor furniture are directly and securely held in place permanently.

A common application of asphalt-mounted fences is for temporary protection of construction sites. The fence posts are bolt-mounted to the anchors that allows for fast dismantling of the fence when it is no longer required.

Figuring out the best configuration for post installation is a time-consuming task. Often an error would mean that the specified anchors were under or over-specified, resulting in a weak installation or an unduly expensive one. The calculators provide the least-cost anchors’ solution needed for the fence or sign installation.

Both calculators are simple to use. For the fence, the user inputs the type of fence being installed (chain link, chain link with mash, solid wall or slatted walls), spacing between posts, post height, plate hole spacing, and the maximum wind-speed the fence will encounter. A complex algorithm provides the user with a list of the best anchor sizes, how many to use, and their list cost per post.

The user can experiment with the input parameters to arrive at desired solutions and to maintain a budget that is right for their project.

The signpost calculator is similar and requires input of the sign size and height as well as maximum wind speed.

Both calculators are part of the redesigned web site, which also offers selection by anchor strength and selection by the use application.

“Ease of installation, application and use is a prime goal at Asphalt Anchors Corp.,” said Dori Teich, “These calculators are just one more step in how we strive to keep improving for our customers.”

The calculators are free for anyone to use and require no login or credentials. Try them out now at or
