Hilti, Inc. Complies with New ICC-ES AC308 Option for Reinforcing Bar Evaluation
Meeting the requirements for this option makes Hilti the first manufacturer able to provide engineers and installers solutions for post-installed rebar applications using development length
provisions of ACI 318

    ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has revised two Hilti, Inc. evaluation reports (ESR-2322 and ESR-3187) to the new  option of AC308: Acceptance Criteria for Post-installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements Table 3.8, which evaluates post-installed reinforcing bars for design equivalency to cast-in-place bars.
    “We are pleased to be able to offer our report holders evaluations to the most current requirements, allowing them to provide industry-leading reports to Code Officials and other construction industry professionals,” said ICC-ES President, Shahin Moinian. “Our highly trained team of engineers has the technical knowledge and experience to fully understand and apply code requirements when evaluating products.”
    The Hilti HIT-RE 500-SD and HIT-HY 200 Adhesive Anchoring Systems and Post-Installed Reinforcing Bar Systems are used to resist static, wind, and seismic tension and shear loads in cracked and uncracked normal-weight concrete. Both products have been evaluated to AC308 for both development length and anchorage design with post-installed reinforcing bars. The evaluation includes 2014 and 2010 Florida Building Code supplements.
    “Through the support of ICC-ES staff and the updated AC308, Hilti is the first manufacturer to be able to provide guidance and solutions for post-installed rebar applications to engineers and installers,” said Roberto Piccinin, Hilti Project Manager of Codes and Approval.
