So yesterday I got a pull up bar at a really good price. Now the only thing I got to do is to mount it to a solid concrete wall. Since a nearby shop offers only a few different anchors, I bought two types that would fit best.
Sleeve anchor - 1/4'' (5/16'' drill) width x 4'' length, Wedge anchor 5/16'' width x 2.5'' length
Pull up bar thickness is 4/5'' (2cm) and there are 8 holes
But here is the problem... I know that the sleeve anchors holding values are less in terms of shear and pullout than those of wedge type. On the other hand the wedge type anchors are really short and the pull up bar itself is thicker than the maximum value allowed for this length of the anchor.
The question is : Should I look for longer wedge type anchors? I live far from the city and would have to order some.
Or are the sleeve type anchors sufficient for the strain that's typical for a workout? Would also like to exercise using a TRX. (Not just me, flatmates too) so safety is a priority.
