Kwik Bolt 3 Mechanical Anchor
Hilti’s Kwik Bolt 3 Mechanical Anchor is a stud anchor for uncracked concrete with an improved wedge design and higher strength material. The Kwik Bolt 3 has an ICC-ES report for concrete (ESR 2302) and grout-filled CMU (ESR1385), with performance values that exceed or meet its predecessor, the Kwik Bolt II.
The Kwik Bold 3 is available in sizes ranging from 1/4 to 1 inch in diameter and available in electrogalvanized carbon, hot dipped galvanized, SS 304 and SS 316. This satisfies a wide range of fastening applications in a variety of environments, including concrete, grout-filled CMU blocks and light-weight concrete over metal deck. The Kwik Bolt 3 also has the FM and UL listing.
To help save contractors time and money, the Hilti Kwik Bolt 3 incorporates unique design features that ease stud anchor installation, including a dog point impact section that helps prevent thread damage during installation, and a rounded end for easy anchor insertion, even around rebar. Shallow embedment depths, enabled by the improved wedge design, mean less drilling time. This helps save time and money on every job.
