RE: no. of anchor bolts

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

If memory serves me correct, this only applies to “columns.”  Anything with a load of less than 300# was not considered a column.

IIRC, this was an OSHA requirement/recommendation for all columns, regardless of size.  I remember an article in Modern Steel Construction, or similar magazine a few years back.  Good luck.

Due to some clearance problem we are inclined to provide two anchor bolts instead of four for our stair tower base plate. The load or the capacity is not an issue, two-bolt is adequate. My only concerned was back in 1999 when I did a retrofit project they told me that 2-anchor bolts is no longer acceptable (i.e. for construction safety…)

 

I’d like to know what part or chapter this be that deprive me to do so.

 

Thanks
