Re: Simpson Titen HD not approved for use in concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
simpson is really pushing the use of their Strong-Bolt wedge anchor.  It meets the criteria for use in cracked concrete per ACI 318, appendix D.  hth.

2008/2/8 Jeff Hedman <jeff_h(--nospam--at)>:

Simpson's catalog shows all kinds of applications for using the Titen HD bolt in concrete.  However, if you read the ICC ES report, only masonry loads are shown in the report.  I can't find anything that says the Titen HD can be used in cracked concrete.  If that is true, can this product not be used for any shear wall sill plates or hold downs?
