Titen Concrete Screw Anchor

Simpson Strong-Tie Titen HD Screw Anchors

For the last few years I have been using the Titen Concrete Screw Anchor as an anchoring solution on my remodeling projects.

Titen screw anchors are made by Simpson Strong-tie and offer the excellent holding performance and ease of installation. They come in large diameter sizes have been great for metal plate and bracket hold downs. The serrated threads on the tip of the stainless-steel Titen HD are vital because they undercut the concrete as the anchor is driven into the hole, making way for the rest of the threads to interlock with the concrete.

Up to now, I was using the coated blue anchors and there was no real exterior or corrosive exposure solution.

The Titen Concrete Screw Anchor is now available in stainless-steel.  Designed specifically for concrete and masonry it solves wet and external environment issues and offers options for outdoor and coastal environmental fastening and corrosion protection.

Stainless-Steel Titen HD

In order for these threads to be durable enough to cut into the concrete, they are formed from carbon steel that is hardened.

With the introduction of the stainless-steel Titen HD, there is finally a state-of-the-art screw anchor solution that combines the corrosion resistance of Type 316 stainless steel with the undercutting ability of a heat-treated carbon-steel cutting threads.
