Simpson Strong-Tie Introduces Titen HD Heavy-Duty Mechanically Galvanized Screw Anchor

 Titen HD by Simpson Strong-TieSimpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has introduced the Titen HD heavy-duty mechanically galvanized screw anchor, a code-listed way to provide high anchoring strength in both interior and exterior applications.

Designed for use in cracked and uncracked concrete, as well as uncracked masonry, this new expansion of the Titen HD line is a cost-effective and highly versatile anchoring solution ideal for sill plates, ledgers, post bases, seating and other holdowns, and wood- or metal-to-concrete applications.

Featuring a proprietary heat treatment and ASTM B695 Class 65 mechanically galvanized coating, the new anchor delivers enhanced corrosion protection indoors and provides an affordable solution for applications that involve anchoring treated wood.

Simpson Strong-Tie designed the Titen HD screw anchor with serrated teeth that reduce driving torque and speed installation. It’s also easily removable, suiting it for use in temporary applications like bracing and formwork, or fixtures that may need to be relocated after installation.

“Code listed and cost-effective for heavy-duty anchoring indoors and out, the new Titen HD mechanically galvanized screw anchor provides the strength and corrosion protection contractors need when building in exterior environments or in applications where anchors are coming into contact with treated lumber,” says Simpson Strong-Tie product manager Scott Park. “Along with proven strength and reliability, the Titen HD is easy to install, making it a versatile solution for a wide range of jobsite anchoring needs.”

Available in standard fractional sizes, the mechanically galvanized Titen HD features an undercutting thread design to efficiently transfer loads to base materials. The hex washer head requires no separate washer (unless required by code), and the specialized heat-treating process creates tip hardness for better cutting without compromising ductility.
