What does PGM actually mean?

Only drill bits manufactured with state of the art technology within strict tolerance limits are granted use of the PGM (Prüfgemein-schaft Mauerbohrer) mark. The mark guarantees geometrically exact holes so that fasteners used will give firm support and achieve rated values.

The PGM Certification Board for Masonry Drill Bits informs on the suitability of hammer drill bits (SDS Plus and SDS Max) and percussion drill bits for safe anchor fixings.

The PGM Mark:

We are proud to announce that our SDS-Plus Industrial, SDS-Plus ProfessionalSDS-Plus ReBar and SDS Max Professional drill bits are PGM certified.
