									Fixings for Hollow Core Concrete
 ITW Construction Products – Test Conditions

 ITW Construction Products (Mechanical & Electrical) fixings have
 been tested into Tensyland section with minimum cube strength
 of 55 N/mm2 at 28 days (100 Plank, 200 and 400). This hollow core
 concrete is a product of Bison Concrete Products Ltd. All fixings
 have been tested into the soffit side of slab to realistically recreate
 the job site application, and installed to a maximum depth of 25mm.
 All fixings have been tested ten times, exceeding CFA guidelines,
 using a calibrated meter. Tests were conducted in order to establish
 the recommended loadings on ITW fixings when used within these
 substrates; all recommended loads are in tensile.


 Tests conducted at Bison manufacturing plant:

 Permissable Fixing Points - Important Information

 Bison pre-cast hollow core slabs contain reinforcing ribs. No fixings
 should be installed in these locations or into the side sections on
 all slabs.

 The use of Pulsa Gas Systems

 The SPIT PULSA 700E and PULSA 700P have been approved for
 use by BISON Concrete Products Ltd. The PULSA gas tool, when
 used with SPIT PULSA fuel cells and pins, will have no detrimental
 affect on the hollow substrate. The PULSA system which operates
 on 82 joules of energy should not be confused with powder actuated
 systems, which typically produce around 350 Joules.

    tool and hammer.
 •	 Reduced	diameter	for	easier	setting.
 •	 M10	x	30	now	available	for	shallow	embedment	to	avoid	
    contact with rebar.
 •	 The	internal	thread	has	a	modified	expansion	angle,	now	
 	 requiring	20%	fewer	hammer	blows	for	complete	expansion.
 •	 Patented	grooves	enable	deformation	of	the	anchor,	making

                                          for non-cracked concrete


09
Specification

Grip L internally threaded, hammer set anchors. Flush fix design is
pre-set by inserting into the drilled hole and hammering the internal
expansion cone inside the body of the anchor using a setting tool.


Body steel S300 Pb NFA 35 - 561
Expansion cone FB10 NFA 35 - 053




Installation

1. Drill the correct diameter hole to
	 the	required	depth	for	the	Spit		
   Grip selected.


2. Clean the hole with a blow out
   bulb.

3. Push the anchor into the hole.


4. Insert the relevant Spit
   expander of the same diameter
   as the anchor until it makes
   contact with the cone. Use a
   hammer to drive the setting tool
   into the anchor - stop
   hammering when the expander
   shoulder rests against the
   anchor or when it is blocked (in
   hard concrete).


5. Insert stud and tighten to the
	 recommended	torque	using	a		
	 torque	wrench.

Installation Instructions

1. Drill pilot hole 4mm diameter, 10mm deeper than
   recommended anchor embedment (5.5mm Tapcon).


2. Drill pilot hole 5mm diameter, 10mm deeper than
   recommended anchor embedment (6.5mm Tapcon).


3. Clean out debris from the hole. Drilling the extra depth will
   allow for the mechanics of the anchor, therefore hole cleaning
   is not as important, but is advised.


4. Insert Pan Tapcon in to T20 Drive Socket for 5.5mm Tapcon or
   T30 Drive Socket for 6.5mm Tapcon.


5. Seat point of anchor into pre-drilled hole and tighten until
   anchor is fully seated.


N.B. Ensure that the drilling tool is not set to hammer action
during installation.

Installation

1. When installing the self tapping screw into concrete, use up to
	 1,200	RPM	drill	(maximum).
2. Use either a standard 6.5mm SDS / masonry drill bit or a Hex
   receiver drill bit for use with the concrete condrive kit code
   921433.
3. Drill a hole in the base material to a depth of 54mm with an
   electric impact / drill set on impact mode.
4. If using the condrive system install the sleeve over the drill bit
   (the drill bit should remain in the tool).
5. Insert the appropriate nut driver in the sleeve (Black Nut driver
   code 921406).
6. Insert the concrete screw into the nut driver.
7. Place the tip of the screw into the pre-drilled hole, ensuring it is
   switched to drill mode and begin insertion.
8. When the nut driver spins free on the screw, installation is
   complete.
9. Stop and remove the drill and screw threaded rod into the
   female threaded socket.

Note: Do not install the concrete screws while the drill is in impact mode - doing so
will destroy the pull-out factor of the screw. When fixing into pre-cast hollow concrete
beams	ensure	Rod	Hanger	Tapcon	is	fixed	into	the	web	for	best	pull-out	result.

 ITW Construction Products - Test Conclusions

 Having completed the tests, ITW CP recommend that the fixings
 tested are suitable for use in heating and ventilation pipe work,
 lighting	equipment,	cables,	ductwork,	partitioning	tracks,	insulation	
 etc, when fixed into Bison hollow core concrete.


 Pre-cast beams consist of a series of pre-cast reinforced units
 with cross sections varying depending on the manufacturer.
 Some will manufacture solid units although these will be heavier
 and generally have a narrower section. All tests have therefore
 been conducted into the narrowest section of the slab resulting in
 minimum recommendations for loadings.


 Axial spacing figures as written within the document are
 conservative, for more comprehensive data, for example reduced
 spacing, we recommend further tests be carried out.


 ITW has now developed a range of anchors supporting both light
 weight and heavy-duty applications, the range now offered is
 now the most extensive of any manufacturer for fixing directly to
 construction materials.
