Torque: hard to see; easy to neglect. When it comes to anchoring in concrete, applying the right torque is critically important. Put bluntly, if an anchor is not set with the specified torque, it is only a matter of time before defects creep in. In fact, the American Construction Inspector Association (ACIA) ranks over-and under-torqued anchors as the number-two reason for failed jobsite inspections.
There are many reasons for why the specified torque would not make it all the way from the instruction for use to reality. Foremost among them is speed: with scheduling pressure constantly increasing, finding the time to carefully set and check every single anchor is practically impossible. On top of that, experienced jobsite professionals with the necessary specialized training are not always on hand.
