AUTHORIZED SIMPSON STRONG-TIE DISTRIBUTOR

 

Titen® screws are 3/16″ and 1/4″ diameter hardened screws for attaching all types of components to concrete and masonry. Available in hex and phillips head designs in two colors. Use with appropriately sized Titen drill bits included with each box.

 

Warning: Industry studies show that hardened fasteners can experience performance problems in wet or corrosive environments. Accordingly, use these products in dry, interior and non-corrosive environments only.

  • TENSION AND SHEAR LOAD VALUES IN NORMAL-WEIGHT CONCRETE

    Titen Tension and Shear Load Values in Concrete

    1. Maximum anchor embedment is 1 1/2″ (38.1 mm).
    2. Concrete must be minimum 1.5 x embedment.
    TENSION AND SHEAR LOAD VALUES IN FACE SHELL OF HOLLOW AND GROUT-FILLED CMU

    Titen Tension and Shear Load Values in Face Shell of Hollow and Grout-Filled CMU

    1. The tabulated allowable loads are based on a safety factor of 5.0 for installations under the IBC and IRC.
    2. Maximum anchor embedment is 1 1/2″ (38.1 mm).
  • INSTALLATION:
    • Drill a hole in the base material using the appropriate diameter carbide drill bit as specified in the table. Drill the hole to the specified embedment depth plus 1/2″ 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 dust from drilling and tapping.
    • Position fixture, insert screw and tighten using drill and installation tool fitted with a hex socket or phillips bit.

    Caution: Oversized holes in the base material will reduce or eliminate the mechanical interlock of the threads with the base material and will reduce the anchor’s load capacity.

    Preservative-treated wood applications: Suitable for use in non-ammonia formulations of CCA, ACQ-C, ACQ-D, CA-B, SBX/DOT and zinc borate. Use in dry, interior environments only. Use caution not to damage ceramic barrier coating during installation. Recommendations are based on testing and experience at time of publication and may change. Simpson Strong-Tie cannot provide estimates on service life of screws.
