RE: Simpsons SET Epoxy Anchor vs Titen HD Anchor

Title: Message
    I haven't used the Titen anchor, but I have specified the Powers Wedge-Bolt which is a similar product. I haven't had any structural problems with them. Our field personnel seem to like them as long as they have the proper tools to install them. They can be difficult to install in high strength concrete. Usually an air impact wrench is required for a 3/4" dia. Wedge-Bolt. If the crews don't have an air compressor available they tend to prefer Power-Bolts which are an expansion type anchor.

Subject: Simpsons SET Epoxy Anchor vs Titen HD Anchor

Hi All!

A contractor recently asked if he could use a 3/4"
Simpsons Titen HD Anchor instead of the 3/4" epoxy
anchor that I called out.  The fix is required because
the contractor missed an embed shear connection into
concrete.  From looking at my loads and the spacing requirements it looks like the Titen HD Anchor (basically an oversized screw) can handle the reaction. 

I have never used this Titen anchor and was wondering
if any else has used them.  I've always used and epoxy
anchor in this situation, but the Titen anchor seems
to be a cleaner and more affordable alternative.
