Anchor Design Software

ICCONS DesignFiX: NCC anchor design made easy

  • An innovative 3D visual user interface, ETAG 001 compliant
  • Seismic design under earthquake loads according to ETAG 001, TR 045
  • Finite element analysis steel baseplate design

ICCONS DesignFiX is a simple, intuitive and free to download (register below) anchor design program for design engineers, project managers, site engineers and end users. Complex mechanical or chemical heavy duty anchor arrangements can be calculated in minutes. All designs follow the newly released SA TS 101:2015 now directly referenced in the 2016 National Construction Code.

Input freedom & 3D user interface

ICCONS DesignFiX offers complete freedom to select an anchor pattern and base plate configuration, as well as the position and direction of load combinations. Changes are made directly into the 3D user interface.

Anchor type comparison

ICCONS DesignFiX displays the usability of the various anchor types (according to ETAG-001, Annex A, TR029) including the values for each load type. This allows you to compare the calculation results of the different anchor types in a single easy to read panel.

Optimum BIS Injection System anchorage depth 

When selecting a BIS Injection Mortar, ICCONS DesignFiX allows for the automatic calculation of the most effective anchorage depth, taking into consideration the minimal and maximum values of the ETA.

Calculate base plate thickness 

The integrated FEM-Calculation Method (Finite Element Method) in ICCONS DesignFiX allows you to calculate the base plate thickness based upon the stresses in the base plate in combination with the base plate configuration.
