It is expose to freeze thaw. I looked at the Tapcon values and a 3/16" x 1 1/4" will work. I will have them caulk around the screw to keep water out.
Harold, this leads to an interesting question. When you specify outdoor post-installed anchors exposed to freeze thaw, do you use expansion anchors with a caulk seal or adhesive anchors that are essentially sealed after installation? I have usually used the latter for exterior applications exposed to freeze thaw.

Drew,Consider Tapcons for this small of a load. If this in an area of potential freeze thaw, seal the hole to prevent water from entering the hole.

It is an outside condenser standing on 1 1/4" concrete pavers that extend from wall curb to wall curb. At each anchor, the uplift forces are less than 5# and the shear is less than 20#. The weight of a paver is enough to keep the condenser down and the pavers can transfer the lateral force through bearing to the wall curb. Can anyone recommend a small screw that is applicable? I will have the holes pre-drilled to minimize the possibility of splitting the pavers.
