RE: ASTM A307 Bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I have been "Properly Specifying Materials" (tm)--for anchor RODS, at
least-ever since the signature article in MSC a couple of years ago.

Even though I have not received any comments on this from contractors after
the drawings have gone out, I wonder if the anchors are being supplied as I
have spec'd them (this is because of my past experience with contractors and
their suppliers who actually took the time to read what I have written, and
who always seem to comment "I don't know what the h*ll you're asking for
here" when a new-fangled spec-say anything newer than twenty years-is

Is the F1554 specification this thoroughly accepted in the construction
industry at this date?

Chris Wright already commented on this. I'll only add my suggestion that you
consider using ASTM F1554 grade 36 whenever you would have used A307 before.
F1554 is a single-source document for anchor rods that gets you everything
you need in one place for threading (and heading, threading/nutting, bending
-- and two other strength grades as well -- 55 and 105).
