SWAB7/8 anchor bolts were developed
to provide anchorage solutions for
Wood Strong-Wall® shearwalls in accordance
with the provisions of ACI 318-05. This code
listed anchor bolt is easy to inspect; the head
is stamped with a “No Equal” symbol for
identification, bolt length and bolt diameter.
Available in four lengths, the SWAB⁷⁄₈ provides
a range of embedment options for seismic or
wind solutions in cracked or uncracked
SWAB Replaced by PAB
The SWAB Anchor Bolt has been discontinued and is replaced by the PAB. See Engineering Letter L-PABCONVERSION to determine the appropriate replacement model number.
