ADVANCED ANCHOR SOLUTIONS BUILT TO CODE
WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED BY THE CODE
A Compliant anchoring solution for every application.
ACI 355.2 and New European seismic regulations provide guidance for the qualification and design of post-installed anchoring.
Under seismic loading, the performance of a connection in a structure is crucial either to its stability or in order to avoid casualties and major economic impacts, due to the collapse of non-structural elements.
In the United States the anchor seismic resistance shall be evaluated in accordance with ACI 318 Appendix D. Created in accordance with the ACI 355.2 regulated testing procedures and acceptance criteria ICC-ES AC193 and AC308, pre-qualification reports provide sound data in a proper design format.
With the release of the ETAG 001 Annex E in the first half of 2013, the seismic pre-qualification of anchors became regulated in Europe. Anchors submitted to these new test procedures will now also incorporate in the ETA (European Technical Approval) all the required technical data for seismic design.
Until the release of the EN 1992-4, planned for 2015, EOTA TR045 (Technical Report) will set the standard for the seismic design of steel to concrete connections.
Therefore, the design framework for the seismic design of anchors is already available through both the U.S.and European regulations. The National Standard NZS 3101 and 4219 are currently related to ACI 318 Appendix D and they stipulate only anchors that have passed ACI 355.2 can be used for seismic applications.
Our anchors are proven to provide the strongest solution for safety critical applications in concrete, fully backed by technical documentation, software and engineering services.
We offer a full suite of ETA and ICC assessed anchoring solutions, to suit every application from basic through to the most complex and challenging
To ensure you comply with the New Zealand Standard (NZS), ask for the ETA documentation for the selected anchor.
