PRODUCT PICKS: July 2015
Each month, hundreds of products hit the market. Here’s our pick of the ones to watch.
New FA4 Foundation Anchor from MiTek
MiTek has developed a foundation anchor that may be used in place of 5/8″ and 1/2″ anchor bolts for foundation tiedowns. The FA4 Foundation Anchors may be installed as a replacement for code required anchor bolts while achieving the same load capacity, while requiring fewer anchor installs overall. The FA4 Foundation Anchors are installed in wet concrete and are designed to allow the concrete to flow through the anchor to reduce the chance for spalling. Once concrete cures, mudsills can be put in place and secured by bending the FA4 flanges for a tight fit then nailing the FA4 in place with USP-specified fasteners. The FA4 can also be mounted to a form board before concrete is poured.
