Schaumburg, IL – ITW, the inventor of the original blue concrete screw, continues to innovate with the addition of three Large Diameter Tapcon® Concrete Screw Anchors that are faster to install and perform better than sleeve and wedge anchors, which translates to an increase in contractor productivity and profitability. These new "Made In The USA" Large Diameter Tapcon Anchors are available in 1/2” x 6”, 3/8” x 3”, 3/8” x 4”, 5/16” x 2” and 5/16 x 3” sizes, and their innovative technology means easier, faster and more secure anchoring into concrete, block and brick in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications, says the company. The new Tapcon anchors feature Advanced Threadform Technology™ which translates into 30 percent lower installation torque, and 20 percent more holding power. Large Diameter Tapcon® Anchors are 50 percent faster to install as they do not require assembling, driving, tightening and torqueing. Simply drill the hole and drive the Tapcon® Anchor. Large Diameter Tapcon® Anchors feature an induction hardened tip that is engineered to cut into concrete and brick, and increases pullout strength. These new Tapcon® Anchors are cracked and seismic approved with 2012 building code compliance, as per ICC-ES ESR-2202, providing a level of assurance contractors appreciate when the Building Inspector arrives. In addition, Tapcon® offers the only 5/16” diameter seismic approved anchor on the market today. (Note: the 5/16” x 3” Tapcon® Anchor is the perfect anchor for installation of windows or doors into concrete or masonry where codes require cracked and seismic approval).
