The Titen HD screw anchor is for use in cracked and uncracked concrete and masonry. It is the ultimate choice to provide fast and efficient installation. The Titen HD (THD) is designed for dry, interior, non-corrosive environments. The Titen HD stainless steel (THDSS) is for use in severe environments where exposure to the elements and corrosion is a concern.
THD and THDSS — Qualified for static and seismic loading conditions
THD and THDSS — Thread design undercuts to efficiently transfer the load to the base material
THD and THDSS — Standard fractional sizes
THD and THDSS — No special drill bit required; designed to install using standard-sized ANSI tolerance drill bits
THD and THDSS — Testing shows the Titen HD installs in concrete with 50% less torque than competitor anchors
THD and THDSS — Hex-washer head requires no separate washer and provides a clean installed appearance
THD — Specialized heat-treating process creates tip hardness for better cutting without compromising the ductility
THD — Temporary exterior applications for the THD carbon
THDSS — Innovative carbon-steel thread effectively cuts the concrete while significantly limiting the amount of carbon-steel in the anchor; less carbon steel, less expansion
THD — Carbon steel
THDSS — Type 316 stainless steel with carbon-steel lead-threads
Carbon steel is zinc plated or mechanically galvanized
Drill a hole in the base material using a carbide drill bit (complying with ANSI B212.15) with the same diameter as the nominal diameter of the anchor to be installed. Drill the hole to the specified minimum hole depth overdrill (see table below) to allow the thread tapping dust to settle, and blow it clean using compressed air. (Overhead installations need not be blown clean.) Alternatively, drill the hole deep enough to accommodate embedment depth and the dust from drilling and tapping.
Insert the anchor through the fixture and into the hole.
Tighten the anchor into the base material until the hex-washer head contacts the fixture.
Holes in metal fixtures to be mounted should match the diameter specified in the Installation Information table
Use a Titen HD screw anchor one time only — installing the anchor multiple times may result in excessive thread wear and reduce load capacity
Do not use impact wrenches to install into hollow CMU
Oversized holes in base material will reduce or eliminate the mechanical interlock of the threads with the base material and reduce the anchor's load capacity
THD — Mechanical galvanizing meets ASTM B695, Class 65, 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.
* These models do not meet minimum embedment depth requirements for strength design and require maximum installation torque of 25 ft. – lb. using a torque wrench, driver drill or cordless 1/4" impact driver with a maximum permitted torque rating of 100 ft. – lb.
