The HVE ROCK® anchor range from Tecfi SpA is available in M6 to M16 diameters, and lengths up to 220mm, as well as being R120 classified for fire resistance according to TR 020.
The range offers a selection of four different solutions – HVE01 with a Grade 8.8 hexagonal head screw and special hardness washer; HVE02 with Grade 8.8 threaded rod, nut and special hardness washer; HVE03 with Grade 8.8 flat countersunk head and hexagonal recess screw; as well as HVE04 with mushroom head and six spline recess screw and special hardness washer.
Tecfi points out its HVE ROCK range has patented geometries and its special materials guarantee very high load values in pull-out and shear; moreover its nylon ring avoids the turning of the anchor during the installation.
In 2010 HVE ROCK achieved a European Technical Approval according to ETAG 001 – Part 1, Option 1
(ETA – 10/0060). The Option 1 assures the use of the anchor both in cracked and non-cracked concrete for structural applications. In addition, in 2017 HVE ROCK got the update from C1 to C2 performance category, which allows the use of the anchor in high seismic risk areas, according to EOTA TR 049.
The whole line, as well as the same as all Tecfi ETA-CE certified anchors, is also included in the Tecfi Anchor Design Software (TADS), which offers the possibility to design anchorages in a simple and safe way.
