Technical Note CTN-M-3-20 - 6 pp.; 2020

To assist the design engineer in coordinating anchor design and installation requirements in construction documents, CRSI has prepared this Technical Note presenting recommended General Notes for Post-installed Mechanical and Adhesive Anchor Installation. As appropriate, the individual notes have been augmented with commentary for the Engineer/Specifier. Many of the notes are consistent with the requirements in ACI 318, the post-installed mechanical qualification, ACI 355.2 [2019] and the post-installed adhesive anchor qualification requirements in ACI 355.4 [2019]. The latest version of referenced ACI documents shall supersede previous versions. Other notes outline proper installation techniques, and the necessary qualifications of the anchor installer. The certification requirements of ACI 318 are highlighted in the notes, and recommended inspection and proof-load testing requirements are presented. The latter requirements represent recommendations from, the Concrete and Masonry Anchor Manufacturer’s Association (CAMA) [2011].
