RE: Concrete Mechanical Anchors

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

What I’ve learned…

 

First of all: It seems that the local jurisdiction will choose whether they are going to enforce this new requirement.

 

According to the rep, the TZ is approximately twice the price of the Kwik Bolt 3

 

Ramset seems to be on board with the concrete requirement:

The Strong Bolt doesn’t have an ICC report yet.  I just spoke with the rep.

Not sure if this lends any insight or not: http://www.icc-es.org/News/concrete_anchors_memo.pdf  

Also a contractor’s perspective: http://www.contractortoolsandsupplies.com/past/anchors/AnchorsAway.htm

 

As far as expansion anchors Hitli has a KB-TZ http://www.us.hilti.com/holus/modules/editorial/edit_singlepage.jsp?contentOID=160674

and Simson has the “Strong-Bolt”  http://www.simpsonanchors.com/catalog/mechanical/strong-bolt/index.html

that meet the criteria.

Listers,

 

This month ICC pulled reports on mechanical anchors in concrete unless they meet the code’s cracked concrete criteria.

 

Can anyone elaborate on this?

 

What are you using?

 

TIA
