Re: Wedge Anchors vs. Epoxy Rods

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Wedge anchors are okay for shear.  In your question you noted that the
required torque will crush the sill plate.  We addressed this issue in the
development of the single family retrofit standards.  Using a large metal
washer plate distributes the force such that the proper torque can be used.
Refer to UCBC Appendix Chapter six for sizes.
