Improved geometry in the preassembled expansion plug allows the DIAB anchor to install with 40% fewer hammer strikes than previous versions. These deformation-controlled expansion anchors are easily set by driving the plug toward the bottom of the anchor using Simpson Strong-Tie hand- or power-setting tools.
When preparing the anchor site, a Simpson Strong-Tie fixed-depth stop bit can be used to ensure drilling to the correct depth. The fluted design of the tip draws debris away from the hole during drilling, allowing for a cleaner installation.
Key features of DIAB anchors include:
· Positive-set marking system to indicate when anchor is properly set
· Lipped drop-in version that keeps top of anchor flush with concrete
· UL and FM approvals
