Crimp Drive® Anchor

Crimp Drive®

The Crimp anchor is an easy-to-install expansion anchor for use in concrete and grout-filled block. The pre-formed curvature along the shaft creates an expansion mechanism that secures the anchor in place and eliminates the need for a secondary tightening procedure. This speeds up anchor installation and reduces the overall cost.

Five crimp anchor head styles are available to handle different applications that include fastening wood or light-gauge steel, attaching concrete formwork, hanging overhead support for sprinkler pipes or suspended ceiling panels.

Key Features

  • Available in carbon steel in five head styles
  • Designed to handle different applications that include fastening wood or light-gauge steel, attaching concrete formwork, hanging overhead support for sprinkler pipes or suspended ceiling panels
  • Curved design helps speed up anchor installation and reduce the overall cost

Material

Carbon steel

Finish

Zinc-plated and mechanically galvanized

Installation

  1. Drill a hole using the specified diameter carbide bit into the base material to a depth of at least 1/2" deeper than the required embedment.
  2. Blow the hole clean of dust and debris using compressed air. Overhead application need not be blown clean. Where a fixture is used, drive the anchor through the fixture into the hole until the head sits flush against the fixture.
  3. Be sure the anchor is driven to the required embedment depth. The rod coupler and tie-wire models should be driven in until the head is seated against the surface of the base material.

Warning

Industry studies show that hardened fasteners can experience performance problems in wet or corrosive environments. Accordingly, with the exception of the duplex anchor, use these products in dry, interior and non-corrosive environments only.

Options

Head Styles: Mushroom, rod coupler, countersunk, tie-wire and duplex

Product Notes

  • Mechanical galvanizing meets ASTM B695, Class 55, Type 1. Intended for some pressure-treated wood sill plate applications. Not for use in other corrosive or outdoor environments. See Technical Notes for corrosion information.
