Torq-Cut™ Self-Undercutting Anchor for Cracked and Uncracked Concrete Now Code Listed to IBC and IRC

Simpson Strong-Tie was recently issued ICC-ES ESR-2705 for the Torq-Cut™ self-undercutting anchor for cracked and uncracked concrete. The anchor was evaluated under ICC-ES AC193 (Acceptance Criteria for Mechanical Anchors in Concrete Elements) and ACI 355.2. The code report verifies compliance with the 2012, 2009, 2006 and 2003 International Building Code and International Residential Code.

The Torq-Cut self-undercutting anchor is a heavy-duty, high-capacity anchor designed and tested for use in cracked and uncracked normal-weight and sand-lightweight concrete under static, wind and seismic loading conditions. The anchor's specially designed low-friction expansion cone minimizes binding and speeds installation. The built-in undercut expansion ring with hardened cutters expands with installation torque forming undercut grooves in the concrete. This interlocking connection between the anchor and the concrete provides superior load-carrying capacity to conventional mechanical anchors.

The Torq-Cut self-undercutting anchor requires no special drill bit or a secondary drilling step for installation. It's available in both pre-set and through-set configurations. Code-listed sizes include 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" diameters.
