About the new Australian standard ATS-EVO for Seismic Anchors

cdaets-icconsimage007

CDAETS in partnership with Iccons is proud to offer a range of highly approved adhesive and mechanical anchors that fully comply with Australia’s NEW CODE.

As of the 23rd December 2015, the Australian Construction Industry now has a formal specification for the Design, Installation and Assessment of Post-installed Anchors.

Australia’s new standard, “SA TS 101:2015 Design of post-installed and cast-in fastenings for use in concrete”, covers post installed chemical anchors, mechanical anchors and cast-in anchors used in concrete for all safety-critical applications.

The 2016 NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION CODE comes into effect on the 1st of May 2016 and directly references SA TS 101:2015.

CDAETS is a proud Australian supplier of National Code Compliant Anchors across both Adhesive and Mechanical anchors and see these new regulations as a significant step forward for the Australian Construction Market and the safety of everyone.

Avoid complications and headaches when selecting anchors DON’T RISK IT …talk to CDAETS about Cracked Concrete approved, NCC compliant products.

CDAETS and ICCONS® embrace New “World’s Best Practice” classifications for performance evaluation of Seismic Anchors.

The seismic qualification of anchors has been regulated in Europe since the publication of the ETAG001 Annex E guideline at the beginning of 2013. Anchors subject to this new certification procedure must now include all the required seismic structural technical data in the ETA (European Technical Assessment).

ICCONS®, the first company to provide Australia and New Zealand with a complete range of C1 and C2 Heavy Duty fixings for Structural Applications in Seismic Risk applications and projects. ICCONS® has pioneered the introduction of C1 and C2 certified Mechanical and Chemical anchors into Australia and NZ. Through a “Worlds Best practice” assessment, ICCONS® has collaborated with Friulsider, BBTEC and TOGE in making C1 and C2 certified fixing systems a reality for the Australian and NZ engineering fraternity.The suitability of the seismic load is classified as:

Seismic Category C1

Similar to the USA ICC-ES qualification procedure, it is only suitable for non-structural applications and comprises static tests on cracks up to 0.5mm.

  • Tested under Static or quasi-static loading
  • Suitable for Non-Structural Applications

Seismic Category C2

Mandatory for structural applications. It comprises strict dynamic tests with amplitude variation of the crack up to 0.8 mm and pulsating loads.

  • Tested under Dynamic and Cyclic Loading
  • Suitable for Structural Applications
