SB Anchor Bolt

SB

The SB5/8x24 anchor bolt offers a load-tested anchorage solution that exceeds the capacity of all of our holdowns that call for a 5/8" dia. anchor. Similarly, the SB1x30 covers holdowns utilizing a 1" diameter anchor that exceed the capacity of our SSTB bolts. The SB7/8x24 is designed to maximize performance with minimum embedment for holdowns utilizing a 7/8" dia. anchor.

SB anchor bolts are code listed by ICC-ES under the 2009 and 2012 IBC and IRC to meet the requirements of ICC-ES acceptance criteria – AC 399. ICC-ES ESR-2611 is the industry's first code report issued for proprietary anchor bolts evaluated to the criteria of AC 399.

Key Features

  • Indentification on the bolt head showing embedment angle and model
  • Sweep geometry to optimize position in form
  • Rolled thread for higher tensile capacity
  • Hex nuts and plate washer fixed in position
  • Available in HDG for additional corrosion resistance

Material

ASTM F-1554, Grade 36

Finish

None. May be ordered HDG. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie.

Installation

  • SB is only for concrete applications poured monolithically except where noted.
  • Top nuts and washers for holdown attachment are not supplied with the SB; install standard nuts, couplers and/or washers as required.
  • On HDG SB anchors, chase the threads to use standard nuts or couplers or use overtapped products in accordance with ASTM A563, for example Simpson Strong-Tie® NUT5/8-OST, NUT7/8-OST and NUT1-OST, CNW5/8-OST, CNW7/8-OST and CNW1-OST.
  • Install SB before the concrete pour using AnchorMates®. Install the SB per the plan view detail.
  • Minimum concrete compressive strength is 2500 psi.
  • When rebar is required it does not need to be tied to the SB.
  • View step-by-step installation instructions in the Installer's Pocket Guide (S-C-INSTALL).

Notes to the Designer
  1. Rebar is required at top of stemwall foundations but is not required for Slab-on-Grade Edge and Garage Curb, or Stemwall Garage Front installations.
  2. Minimum end distances for SB bolts are as shown in graphics.
  3. Multiply the tabulated ASD wind or seismic loads by 1.6 or 1.4, respectively, to obtain LRFD capacities.
  4. Per Section 1613 of the IBC, detached one- and two-story dwellings in SDC C may use "Wind and SDC A&B" allowable loads.
  5. See ESR-2611 for additional information.
  6. Midwall loads apply when anchor is 1.5 le or greater from the end. For bolts acting in tension simultaneously, the minimum bolt center-to-center spacing is 3 le.
  7. Full catalog loads apply for two-pour installation for slab-on-grade: edge.
