UBC Section 1806.6 and CBC 1806A.6

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
UBC Section 1806.6 reads 
    "Wood plates or sills shall be bolted..."
This has been revised in CBC Section 1806A.6 to read...
    "Sills under bearing or shear walls shall be bolted......"
So far so good.  Hope ICB will have the same wording as CBC.
Now the real question.  Both UBC and CBC Section 1606.6.1.2 and 1606A.6.1.2 state...
    "Plate washer....... shall be used on each bolt."
Did they left out "at shear wall"?  Are plate washers required at bearing wall that is not a shear wall?  I would tend to say "No".  Anybody care to comment?
