Purchase Wedge Anchors

The brand name for Simpson Strong-Tie’s wedge anchor is wedge-all.  The wedge-all comes in a variety of types based on the materials they are made from and on their plating.  While the most widely purchased is the zinc plated wedge-all, they are available in hot-dipped galvanized, 304 and 316 stainless steel.  The zinc plated wedge-all is designed for indoor dry environments; the hot-dipped galvanized for outdoor applications where moisture may be present.  Both the 303 and 316 stainless steels are used in applications where the wedge-all may be submerged in water or where other chemicals may be present.

Diameters
Wedge-all wedge anchors are available in 8 different diameters of 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4”, 7/8”, 1” and 1-1/4”.  (see chart below)

Lengths
Each diameter of wedge-all wedge anchors comes in a number of different lengths to be used in applications that require different thicknesses of material being fastened and different embedment depths. (see chart below)

Threads
All threads on the wedge-all wedge anchors are National Coarse Threads with the length of the threads varying depending on the overall length of the wedge-all.

Material Specifications
The body of the wedge-all wedge anchor meets minimum 70,000 psi tensile strength; the nut is carbon steel ASTM A 563, Grade A; both the clip and washer are carbon steel.

 

Hole Diameter
The diameter of the hole in the concrete is equal to the diameter of the wedge-all being installed.  If a 1/2” diameter wedge-all is being installed, then a 1/2” diameter hole must be drilled into the concrete.  The hole must be drilled using a hammer drill and a carbide tipped drill bit.  The carbide tipped drill bit must meet ANSI standard B212-15-1994.

Hole Depth
The hole must be drilled to a minimum depth to meet the minimum embedment requirements for the diameter of wedge-all being installed.  The hole should be drilled to a depth to allow for a minimum of 1/2” space between the end of the anchor and the bottom of the hole.  This space is the receptacle for any dust and debris that may be created during the installation process to fall into, which ensures that it is out of the way and does not affect the installation process.

Installation

  • Drill hole in the concrete using a hammer drill. Hammer drill must be set in the hammer and rotation mode and a carbide tipped bit that meets ANSI standards B212-15-1994 must be used.  Drill the depth of the hole deep enough to ensure minimum embedment for the diameter of wedge-all being installed and to allow space for any dust created during the installation to fall into.

  • Clean out the hole of all dust and debris by using compressed air.

  • Place washer on to the wedge-all anchor body, and then thread nut on until the top of the nut is flush with the top of the wedge-all anchor body.

  • Insert the wedge-all into the predrilled hole in the concrete. Using a hammer, strike the nutted end of the wedge-all until the nut and washer are tight against the fixture or concrete.

  • Using a wrench, turn the nut until the recommended torque values are reached.
