The Strong-Bolt 2 wedge anchor is the next-generation solution for cracked and uncracked concrete. Following rigorous testing according to ICC-ES acceptance criteria, the Strong-Bolt 2 anchor received classification as a Category 1 anchor, the highest attainable anchor category for performance in cracked concrete under static and seismic loading. Available in stainless steel, it is code-listed by ICC-ES under the 2009 IBC requirements for post-installed anchors in cracked and uncracked concrete. Available in the popular 3/8" diameter, the Strong-Bolt 2 anchor is ideal for MEP applications in cracked concrete, such as hanging pipes, struts, equipment anchorage and other fixtures overhead. The anchor is also effective for lightweight- concrete applications, including concrete-over-metal decking.
