Re: Bar Stools on the move

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Joe,
 
Serious reply:
 
Use 1" thick wood or plywood plate matching the stool footprint.  Attach it to concrete with SST TITEN  screws, 3/16" dia, 1" embedment (definitely shallower than any rebar), allowable capacity 125# in pullout.  Four of these anchors will not fail before the stool itself will: ultimate (bar brawl) capacity=500# each.
Alternatively, the plate may be glued to concrete (Sikadur 32), with strength of connection incomparably higher than that of the assembly - or of anything in that bar. 
Then, use something like 6d wood screws with 209# of pullout capacity into the wooden plate (penetration 1/0.138=7.24>7, no reduction). 
 
Will that work?
