Re: Sill bolts on metal decking question.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You can put shear into a 4" slab using expansion bolts, just use the values
from the anchor manufacturer's specs based on your slab thickness.  You
won't get a lot of shear, but if you have a shear wall you can put as many
anchors along the wall as you need.
