ANCHORS > Titen HD
Screw Anchor for Concrete and Masonry
The proprietary design of the threads on the
Titen HD anchor hold the key to its performance. During installation, hardened cutting teeth at the tip of the
anchor undercut the concrete allowing the rest of the threads to follow with very little friction. The result is a
continuous mechanical interlock between the anchor and base material that requires little installation

Reduced Installation Time: No secondary setting
or torquing is required. Just drive it and you’re done. Install more anchors per hour and
reduce labor costs.
Reduced Installation Torque: Testing shows that
when compared with other screw-type anchors, the Titen HD anchor requires 50% less torque to
be installed in concrete. The serrated teeth on the lead
threads facilitate cutting, enabling the user to install the anchor faster with less
Cut Your Drill Bit Inventory: The Titen HD
anchor requires NO SPECIAL DRILL BITS. It is designed to
install in standard metric sized holes so there are no “matched tolerance” drill bits to be
Cut Down on Tools: Just an impact or socket
wrench is all you need for installation. No need for separate tools to drive and set the
Eliminate The Hassle of Removal: Since the
Titen HD anchor is easy to remove, it is ideal for temporary anchoring or applications where
fixtures may need to be moved. No torching or grinding is required after removaleliminating
possible corrosion and rust stains.
Avoid Lost Washers and Protruding Studs: The
hex washer head eliminates the need for a separate washer and provides a clean look after
No Inspection Hassles: Because it is not an
expansion anchor, there are no installation torque requirements to verify with the Titen HD anchor.
It also has the Simpson Strong-Tie “=/ ” sign along with the anchor length and diameter stamped
into the head, making post installation inspection a snap.
Higher Load Capacity: Rather than one expansion
area, the Titen HD anchor has threads along the entire length of the anchor that undercut the base
material to efficiently transfer the load.
Vibration and Shock Resistance: The mechanical
interlock of the threads and the ratchet teeth on the underside of the head help prevent the anchor
from loosening in vibratory conditions. The Titen HD anchor has been tested to 12.6 million vibratory
cycles with no performance reductions.
Less Spacing and Edge Distance Required: The Titen
HD anchor does not exert expansion forces on the base material. This means greater placement
flexibility because anchors can be placed closer to each other or closer to the edge of the base
material while maintaining performance.
Proprietary Heat Treating Process: Creates superior
surface hardness for cutting into the hardest of base materials, while at the same time maintaining the
Full Body Diameter: The diameter of the anchor body
is equal to the nominal diameter of the anchor. That means that the body of a 16mm Titen HD is a full
16mm. This gives the Titen HD anchor higher shear values than other products which are often
undersized. It also allows the Titen HD to be installed with commonly used metric drill
Easy Post-Installation Inspection: The head is
stamped with the Simpson Strong-Tie “=/ ” sign and the anchor diameter and length in
Holes in metal fi xtures to be mounted
should match the diameter range specifi ed in the table.
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. Use a Titen HD screw anchor one
time only. Installing the anchor multiple times may result in excessive thread wear and reduce load
Drill a hole in the base material using a carbide
drill bit the same diameter as the nominal diameter of the anchor to be installed. Drill the hole to
the specified drill hole depth 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.
Insert the anchor through the fixture and into the
Tighten the anchor into the base material until the
hex washer head contacts the fixture.
If the anchor will not install completely, remove
the anchor and assure that all dust has been evacuated or drill the hole deeper. Begin re-installation
of the anchor by hand to prevent crossthreading.
Do not use impact wrenches to install into hollow

Recommended loads for single anchors with no
infl uencing edge distances or spacings. Loads are calculated using partial safety factors from ETAG 001 and the
characteristic anchor and installation data from this fl yer. Design calculations shall follow the requirements of
The recommended loads have been calculated using
the partial safety factors for resistances stated in the ETA-approval and an partial safety factor for
actions of YF = 1.4. The
recommended loads are valid for unreinforced concrete and reinforced
concrete with a rebar spacing s ≥ 15 cm and reinforced concrete with a rebar spacing s ≥ 10 cm if the
rebar Ø =
10 mm or smaller.
The recommended shear loads are based on a single
anchor without infl uencing concrete edges. For shear loads applied close to an edge (c < max [10
hef , 60 d]) concrete edge faliure
must be checked per ETAG 001, Annex C, design method
Concrete is considered non-cracked when the tensile
stress within the concrete is σL + σR ≤ 0. In the absence of detailed verifi cation σR = 3 N/mm² can be
assumed (σL equates the
tensile stress within the concrete as a result of external loads, forces
on anchors included).
If spacings or edge distances become smaller than
the characteristic values (i.e. s ≤ scr,N and/or c ≤ ccr,N) a calculation per ETAG 001, Annex C, design
method A must be
performed. For details see ETA-12/0060.
