Anchoring Systems

1.1 Product Description


The Kwik Bolt 3 (KB3) is a torque controlled
expansion anchor, which provides consistent
performance for a wide range of mechanical
anchor applications. This anchor series is
available in carbon steel with zinc
electroplated coating, carbon steel with hot
dipped galvanized coating, 304 stainless
steel and 316 stainless steel versions.The
threaded stud version of the anchor is
available in a variety of diameters ranging
from 1/4" to 1" depending on the steel and
coating type. Applicable base materials
include normal weight concrete, structural
lightweight concrete, lightweight concrete
over metal deck and concrete grout filled
masonry.

Guide Specifications

one of the following conditions: 1. The carbon
steel electroplated anchor coating shall
conform to ASTM B633 with a minimum
thickness of 5m. 2. The carbon steel hot
dipped galvanized anchor body, nut and
washer coating shall conform to ASTM A 153,
Class C. The expansion sleeve conforms to
AISI 316. 3. Anchor body, nut and washer

Product Description

Length identification code facilitates quality


control and inspection after installation.

1.2

Material Specification

1.3

Technical Data

Through fixture installation and variable


thread lengths improve productivity and
accommodate various base plate
thicknesses.

1.4

Installation Instructions

1.5

Ordering Information

Raised impact section (Dog Point) prevents


thread damage during installation.
Anchor size is same as drill bit size for easy
installation. For temporary applications
anchors may be driven into drilled holes
after usage.
Mechanical expansion allows immediate
load application.
Consistent performance in concrete,
lightweight concrete, lightweight over metal
deck and grout filled concrete block base
materials.
Anchors tested to combined tension and
shear load requirements as defined by ACI
318-02 Appendix-D.

Installation
Drill hole in concrete, structural lightweight
concrete, or grout filled concrete block using a
Hilti carbide tipped drill bit and a Hilti rotary
hammer drill. Remove dust from the hole with
oil free compressed air. Alternately for 1/2,
5/8, 3/4, and 1 inch diameter Kwik Bolt 3
anchors, the hole may be drilled using a
matched tolerance Hilti DD-B or DD-C wet
diamond core bit for anchoring applications.
The slurry must be flushed from the diamond
cored hole prior to anchor installation. The
minimum hole depth must exceed the anchor
embedment prior to torquing by one hole
diameter. Drive the anchor into the hole using
a hammer. A minimum of six threads must be
below the surface of the fixture. Tighten the
nut to the recommended installation torque.

Values are for anchors installed in Type 1 Grade N, lightweight, medium-weight, or normal-weight concrete
masonry units conforming to UBC Standard 21-4. The masonry units must be fully grouted with coarse grout
conforming to UBC Standard 21-15, Type S, N, or M. Masonry prism compressive strength must be at least
1500 psi at the time of installation when tested in accordance with UBC Standard 21-17.
2
Anchors must be installed a minimum of 1 3/8 inch from any vertical mortar joint (see figure).
3
Anchor locations are limited to one per masonry cell.
4
Embedment depth is measured from the outside face of the concrete masonry unit.
5
Linear interpolation to determine load values at intermediate edge distances is permitted.
6
All allowable loads based on safety factor of 4.0

Anchor Installation is Allowed in all Non-Shaded Areas

Anchor Spacing and Edge Distance Guidelines


1- s = on-center fastening spacing
c = edge distance from center of bolt.
2- Apply appropriate load reduction factors for
tension and shear if anchor spacing and/or edge
distance is less the the critical spacing (Scr) or
edge distance (Ccr) as defined by Hilti.
3- See section 4.1.2.3 of 2005 Hilti Product
Technical guide for determinig compounded
spacing and edge distance reduction as well as
intermediate load values for concrete strengths
and embedments.
