Hex Sleeve-All® Sleeve Anchors - Simpson Strong-Tie Anchor Systems®

The Sleeve-All® is the brand name given by Simpson Strong-Tie’s for their sleeve anchor. The sleeve anchor is an expansion anchor that utilizes an expanding sleeve comes preassembled and works well in many different types of base materials, such as concrete, brick or block. The Sleeve-All® sleeve anchors are made from four different parts: the sleeve anchor stud, the sleeve and the nut and washer. The Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is available in five different head styles to meet different types of applications.

Hex Sleeve-All® Materials and Finishes

The hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is available in a carbon steel zinc plating or 304 stainless steel. The carbon steel anchor body meets minimum 50,000-psi tensile strength steel, the sleeve is SAE J403, grade 1008 cold rolled steel, the nut meets requirements ASTM A563 Grade A and the washer SAE J403, and grade 1008/1010 cold rolled steel.

Hex Sleeve Anchor Diameters

Hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchors come in five diameters: 5/16”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8” and 3/4” with each diameter having two to four different lengths. The designated diameter of the Hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is the outside diameter and hole size equal anchor size. The anchor body is a threaded stud and is smaller than the designated diameter of the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor. The hex nut that goes on the sleeve anchor is a smaller size than the designated diameter. The 5/16” uses a 1/4” nut, the 3/8” uses a 5/16” nut, the 1/2” uses a 3/8” nut, the 5/8” uses a 1/2” nut and the 3/4” uses a 5/8” nut. The holding value both in tension and shear gets greater with the increase in the diameter of hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being used.

Hex Sleeve-All® - Lengths

Each diameter of hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is available in several different lengths. The length of hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor needed is determined by the item being fastened down to the base material. The minimum length hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor can be determined by adding the thickness of the material being fastened to the minimum embedment requirements for the diameter of the diameter of hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being used. All hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor lengths are measured from under the hex nut and washer. (See chart below)

Minimum Embedment for Simpson Hex Sleeve Anchors

The minimum embedment for the different diameters of hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is determined by the maximum fixture thickness. Subtracting the maximum fixture thickness of the overall length of the sleeve anchor gives the minimum embedment depth for each diameter of hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor. (See Chart Below)

Hole Diameter

The hole to be drilled into the base material is equal to the designated diameter of the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being installed. A carbide bit meeting ANSI standards will ensure proper hole tolerance between anchor and hole size. An oversized hole will make it difficult to set the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor and will reduce the holding values.

Hex Sleeve-All® Depth of Hole

The hole in the base material should be drilled at a depth that will allow the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor to be installed at minimum embedment depth plus 1/4” to 1/2” deeper to accommodate any dust that may accumulate during the installation process.

Hole in Fixture

If the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor will be placed through the fixture and into the base material than the hole diameter in the fixture must be 1/8” larger than the designated diameter of the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being installed. Sleeve anchor diameters are larger than true diameters, making it necessary to always select the sleeve anchor diameter to be used from the diameter of the hole in the fixture. If the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor will be set in place and then the fixture placed over the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor then the fixture hole diameter size can be the same as the hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor.

Hex Sleeve-All® Installation Instructions

1. A hammer drill with the correct diameter carbide bit meeting ANSI standards must be used to drill a hole in the base material. Drill hole deep enough to accommodate minimum embedment requirements plus 1/4” to 1/2”.

2. Using compressed air, blow dust from the hole.

3. Insert hex Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor through the fixture and into the hole in the base material until the washer and nut are tight against the surface of the fixture.

4. Tighten the nut by turning clockwise to the required installation torque.
