JORDAHL® Cast in Anchor Channel and T bolt Fixings
Design and Certifications
JORDAHL® cast in JTA channels are used in conjunction with simple twist-in T bolts that together provide safe and adjustable concrete connections for the resistance of tension and shear loads. The products are evaluated under UK Technical Assessment UKTA-0836-22/6149 and European Technical Assessment ETA/09-0338.
JORDAHL® cast in JTA channels and T bolts are certified around the world and have a proven history of high reliability and high performance. Invented in 1913 by Anders Jordahl and since produced for over 100 years, the cast in channel JTA fixing range comprises JTA W hot-rolled, and JTA K cold rolled channel profiles, which are manufactured and suppled under an ISO 9001:2015 quality assurance system.
To assist designers with product selection and load distribution design, JORDAHL® EXPERT design software for anchor channels JTA is available from the downloads section of this product page. This aclaimed design software is free to download and easy to use.
Cold Rolled Cast in Anchor Channel Fixings
JTA K cold rolled anchor channels give an efficient method of connecting predominantly static loads. Typical applications include brickwork support connections, and connections for mechanical and electrical building services. Available profile sizes are as follows:
JTA K 28/15 anchor channel
JTA K 38/17 anchor channel
JTA K 40/25 anchor channel
JTA K 50/30 anchor channel
JTA K 53/34 anchor channel
JTA K 72/48 anchor channel
Hot Rolled Cast in Anchor Channel Fixings
JTA W hot-rolled anchor channel fixings provide simple and reliable concrete connections for critical components. In addition to static loads they are certified for the support of oscillating, seismic or dynamic loads such as those produced by moving machinery, structural vibration, and wind loads. Typical applications include curtain wall connections; structural and architectural steel connections; and connections for lift and material handling guide rails. Available profile sizes are as follows:
JTA W 40/22 anchor channel
JTA W 40+ anchor channel
JTA W 50/30 anchor channel
JTA W 50+ anchor channel
JTA W 53/34 anchor channel
JTA W 55/42 anchor channel
JTA W 72/48 anchor channel
Examples of Bespoke Solutions
Curved cast in anchor channels, anchor channels grouped in pairs, anchor channel corner pieces. Production of special profiles on request.
Available in hot-dip galvanised steel or stainless steel (A4) in lengths up to 6 metres. Channel profiles are filled with polyethylene (PE) or polystyrene (PS) to prevent concrete ingress when cast into concrete.
To provide the widest selection of load performance a range of 13 cast in anchor channel types are available with standard channel lengths ranging from 150mm to 6 metres. Load capacities up to 72 kN design resistance per connection. Standard T bolt diameters range from M6 to M30.
