Description

Each 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor features a stainless steel expansion clip, zinc plated threaded stud body and zinc plated nut and washer.

Applications

The 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is designed for use in solid concrete and should not be used in other base materials such as brick or block.

Packaging

Each box of 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor contains 10 pieces and weights 9.4 pounds. Each carton has 3 boxes of 10 pieces (totaling 30 pieces) and weighs 29 pounds.

Anchor Diameter

The diameter of the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is 5/8” and designated by the first number in the description.

Anchor Length

The length of the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is the second number in the description, or 10”. The length of the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is measured as an overall length from end to end and includes the threads.

Thread Type

Threads on the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor are national coarse threads with 11 threads per inch and designated as 5/8" - 11.

Thread Length

The length of threads on a 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is 5-3/4".

Hole Diameter

The diameter of the hole that needs to be drilled into the concrete for the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is 5/8”. The hole must be drilled with a 5/8” carbide tipped bit drill bit that meets ANSI standards and used in a hammer drill that is set to the hammer and rotation mode.

Depth of Hole

The 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor does not use the bottom of the hole for expansion. The hole can be any depth as long as exceeds the required minimum embedment plus 1/2”. The extra 1/2” allows space for any dust that is created during the installation process to fall out of the way.

Minimum Embedment

The minimum embedment for the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is 2-3/4”. This means that for the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor to obtain minimum holding values in concrete, it must be embedded below the surface of the concrete a minimum of 2-3/4” after it has been torqued to the proper values.

Diameter of Hole in Fixture

If the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor will be installed with the fixture in place, then the hole in the fixture must be a minimum of 11/16” in diameter.

Length Identification

The threaded end of the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is stamped with a letter that identifies the overall length of the anchor allowing for embedment depth inspection after installation. The letter “R" is stamped on the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor to indicate an overall length of 10” but less than 11".

Wrench Size Required

The required size of wrench used to tighten the nut to expand the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is 15/16”.

Torque Value

Each 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor installed must be torqued to 90 ft/lbs to meet holding value requirements.

Minimum Slab Thickness

The minimum thickness for the slab of concrete that the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is installed into is 5”, based on embedment of 2-3/4".

Minimum Edge Distance

The recommended distance from an unsupported edge of concrete for both tension and shear for the 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor is 4-13/16" at an effective embedment of 2-3/4".

Minimum Spacing

When installing more than one 5/8" x 10” Red Head Trubolt wedge anchor, the recommended spacing between anchors required to obtain maximum working load is 9-5/8"” at an effective embedment depth of 2-3/4.
