The AdvanConn® PA-EX is a low-profile concrete panel-to-foundation connection device that exceeds ACI 318-14, 220.127.116.11(b) code requirements to resist 10,000-pound tension loads. Tested to 18,000 lbs; a Safety Factor of 1.8.
The PA-EX is fully galvanized for exterior panel installation. This device is frequently installed with a threaded rod and epoxy and can be used in high seismic zones. Just four inches of the device is exposed above the bottom of the concrete panel and is easily concealed with pavement or landscaping. As with all AdvanConn® products, the PA-EX requires no field welding.
