A new way to connect structural to
I have a patent for the VeRost Anchor
Plate that will eliminate the dangerous and costly practice of field welding
to a blind embed in concrete foundation walls.
The benefits of this system
1. Field welding is very labor
intensive and expensive as well as dangerous for the Iron
who is doing the welding or
2. With welding there is the chance that
current could pass through the sensitive on board computer equipment in the
3. A beam pocket with anchor bolts is
costly to build into the form work, then the beam has to be grouted to
elevation. With this system the reinforcing is usually interupted for the
4. With field welding there is always
the chance of the concrete spalling from the heat of welding.
5. With field welding the only way to
verify the capacity of the weld and connection is through very expensive
testing of the weld. A bolted connection can be figured and verified with a
visual count of the bolts.
The erector just bolts the beam same as
bolting to a column.
As with any connection the Engineer of
Record must approve this connection for the project that it's used
We provide connections for use on precast
or tilt-up panels and for structural steel from a W4 to W36 beam
sizes. The beams would be slotted for the normal adjustment allowed for
concrete as well as the outstanding legs of the connection
