Titen HD®

CODE LISTED

ICC-ES ESR-2713 (Cracked and Uncracked Concrete)
ICC-ES ESR-1056 (CMU)

The Titen HD® anchor is a patented, high-strength screw anchor for concrete and masonry. It is designed for optimum performance in both cracked and uncracked concrete; a requirement that the 2009 IBC places on post-installed anchors. The high strength, easy to install Titen HD anchor has been tested and shown to provide outstanding performance in cracked and uncracked concrete under both static and seismic loading conditions. The self-undercutting, non-expansion characteristics of the Titen HD anchor make it ideal for structural applications, even at reduced edge distances and spacings. Recommended for permanent dry, interior non-corrosive environments or temporary outdoor applications.

U.S. Patent 5,674,035 & 6,623,228

Serrated teeth on the tip of the Titen HD® screw anchor facilitate cutting and reduce installation torque.

Suitable for use in place of code anchor bolts .


New longer 1/2" diameter Titen HD® anchors achieve sufficient embedment depth to develop tension loads equal to many Simpson Strong-Tie holdowns that specify a 5/8" diameter anchor. Testing has been conducted to assure compatibility of these holdowns’ anchor holes with the 1/2" Titen HD screw anchor.


The Titen HD® screw anchor 3/4 x 6 and 3/4 x 7 (models THDT75600H and THD75700H) have a 1" section under the head that is unthreaded to allow installation into tilt-up wall braces.


FEATURES

  • Code-listed under the current IBC/IRC in accordance with AC193 for cracked concrete applications per ICC-ES ESR-2713
  • Code-listed under the current IBC/IRC in accordance with AC106 for masonry applications per ICC-ES ESR-1056
  • Serrated teeth on the tip of the Titen HD facilitate cutting and reduce installation torque.

    Serrated teeth on the tip of the Titen HD screw facilitate cutting and reduce installation torque.

  • Thread design undercuts to efficiently transfer the load to the base material
  • Specialized heat-treating process creates tip hardness for better cutting without compromising the ductility that helps prevent breakage
  • No special drill bit needed: Designed to install using standard sized ANSI tolerance drill bits
  • Installs with 50% less torque: Testing shows that when compared to competitors, the Titen HD requires 50% less torque to be installed in concrete.
  • Hex-washer head: Requires no separate washer and provides a clean installed appearance.*
  • Removable: Ideal for temporary anchoring (e.g. formwork, bracing) or applications where fixtures may need to be moved. Re-use of the anchor to achieve listed load values is not recommended.

*Some jurisdictions require an additional square plate washer for sill plate applications.

INSTALLATION

TEST CRITERIA

The Titen HD® anchor has been tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC193, ACI 355.2 and ICC-ES AC106 for the following:

  • Static tension and shear loading in cracked and uncracked concrete
  • Seismic and wind loading in cracked and uncracked concrete
  • Performance in uncracked masonry

Anchor Fatigue Testing: Tested in accordance with ASTM E 488 for the effects of fatigue. 25% of the average ultimate load was applied to the anchor for 2 million cycles at a frequency of 15 Hz. Subsequent load tests showed no reduction in ultimate tension capacity.

Vibratory Load Testing: A 150 lb. concrete block was suspended from a 3/8" diameter anchor embedded at 1 1/2" and vibrated for 12.6 million cycles at a frequency of 30 Hz and an amplitude of 0.0325 inches. Subsequent load test showed no reduction in ultimate tension capacity.

Field Testing: For guidance on field testing see technical bulletin T-A-THDINSP.

SUGGESTED SPECIFICATIONS

Screw anchors shall have 360-degree contact with the base material and shall not require oversized holes for installation. Fasteners shall be manufactured from carbon steel, and are heat-treated. Anchors shall be zinc plated in accordance with ASTM B633 or mechanically galvanized in accordance with ASTM B695. Anchors are not to be reused after initial installation. Screw anchors shall be Titen HD® anchors from Simpson Strong-Tie, Pleasanton, CA. Anchors shall be installed per the Simpson Strong-Tie instructions for the Titen HD anchor.

*Some jurisdictions require an additional square plate washer for sill plate applications.
