Installation Quality Bulletin Number: 11-04

To: All Installation Suppliers / Central Office Operations Representatives / Design Engineering Representatives / Sr. Technical Support Manager (formerly Quality Managers) / Field Engineering Representatives / Planning and Engineering Guidelines (formerly AMC Representatives) Date: Monday, August 15, 2011 From: CenturyLink Installation Quality Assurance Subject: New Standard CenturyLink Toll Equipment and Power Anchor Bolt Assemblies.

Action Required: NO: YES: Description of Bulletin: The purpose of this Installation Quality Bulletin is to document the new standard anchor bolt assemblies approved for use within Toll/Switch/Power areas of CenturyLink Central Offices and equipment facilities. Effective 8/15/2011, the CenturyLink approved anchor manufacturer will

change to SeiscoTM LLC and new orders will provide either the Toll/Switch Anchor Kit, SE12125, or the Battery Stand/Power Anchor Kit, SE12125-B. COE-FM Q&As will be revised to order the correct anchor bolt assemblies. Any remaining HiltiTM 002307122 anchors (Refer to Installation Quality Bulletins 04-03 and 0606) will be utilized until the existing stock is exhausted, but will not be reordered. The new SeiscoTM torque indicating expansion anchor bolt kits are designed for embedment in floor thicknesses 4" or greater. Where the facility floor design will not allow for installation of the CenturyLink standard Seisco anchor kits, contact the CenturyLink Real Estate representative responsible for the building to obtain a structurally safe custom solution for anchoring equipment frames, cabinets or battery stands.
