New TOGE Concrete Fixing
Suspended Ceilings – Design and Installation
The New Zealand and Australian Standard for Design and Installation of Suspended Ceilings was previously updated over 20 years ago. The last two decades has seen massive developments in concrete anchoring technology and guideline standards. AS/NZS 2785:2000 was drafted before reliable concrete anchoring standards had been published, concrete anchor capacities were not regulated, and published load capacities may not have provided an allowance for anchoring into the overhead “tension zone” of the concrete soffit. Earlier this year the updated standard AS/NZS 2785:2020 Suspended Ceilings – Design and Installation was released. The revised standard was required to align with many newer related standards, most specifically AS5216:2018 Design of post-installed and cast-in fastenings in concrete.
Because of the importance of strong and reliable concrete anchors in a safety critical situation, the ICCONS TSM M6 x 43mm Seismic Screwbolt is the perfect choice for lightweight overhead applications into concrete.
Why The ICCONS TSM M6 x 43mm Seismic Screwbolt?
The ICCONS TSM hex head M6 x 43mm Zinc Screwbolt is an ideal fixing for overhead applications requiring seismic C1 and ETA approval. Support brackets, clips, collars, cleats and angles can be Power Fixed with a quick and positive screw fixing. Perfect for overhead lightweight applications into concrete.
ICCONS TSM High Performance Screw Anchors feature quick and safe installation as well as high load capacities in both cracked and non-cracked concrete due to the concrete undercut load transmission. This size has also been tested and assessed under Seismic C1 requirements. The TSM 6 x 43mm can be easily removed if required and does not leave residual metal components in the concrete. Loads can be achieved immediately upon installation.
