Lag Bolts in Sht. Metal Straps

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm working on the anchorage of equipment to existing wood stud walls and need to know what the minimum thickness of sheet metal strapping is for both a 3/8" diam. and 1/2" diam. lag bolt acting in shear and what those shear values are. I understand the values ares in some light gauge metal handbook which I do not have. I would like the thickness to be the minimum possible, (24 ga.?), and still get an allowable shear value of about 400#.

Thanks in advance.
