Screen tubes are used in hollow base material applications to contain adhesive around the anchor and prevent it from running into voids. Simpson Strong-Tie® screen tubes are specifically designed to work with AT, SET and ET-HP® adhesives in order to precisely control the amount of adhesive that passes through the mesh. This results in thorough coating and bonding of the rod to the screen tube and base material. Order screen tubes based upon rod diameter and adhesive type. The actual outside diameter of the screen tube is larger than the rod diameter.
Acrylic screen tubes: 50 mesh stainless steel
Epoxy screen tubes: 60 mesh carbon steel
Screen tubes are designed for a specific adhesive type. Epoxy screen tubes must be used with SET or ET-HP® formulations, and acrylic screen tubes must be used with AT.
Screen tubes are for use in hollow CMU, hollow brick and unreinforced masonry applications. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie for information on special-order sizes.
