RE: Programs for cast-in-place Anchors

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



Have you tried to epoxy a holdown anchor into a 2x stud wall.  I find using the Hilti epoxy limits my minimum edge distance to more than 3” for a 5/8” threaded rod.  So for a 2x4 stud wall with a minimum edge distance of 1.75” this will not work.  I have been informed by Simpson that some cities still allow you to use the old ESR reports. 


Have you run into this situation with the new code?

I found the hilti program not user friendly for doing a single epoxy hold-down... I gave up and hand calc'd it. Maybe for groups of anchors it's better...

How's the simpson one? Not that they have an epoxy I can use yet...
