Strong-Rod® Threaded Rod

Strong-Rod®

On This Page

Strong-Rod threaded rods are the tension transfer element within the Anchor Tiedown System for shearwall overturning restraint. Strong-Rod threaded rods are threaded on both ends, with the top end having 12" or 48" of thread to allow for the distance that the rod sticks through the device, which can vary. Information clearly etched on the shank allows easy identification in the field.

Material

High-Strength (Model ATS-SR_H) – ASTM A449, A193 Grade B7 or F1554 Grade 105
min Fy = 92 ksi, min Fu = 120 ksi

Super High-Strength (Model ATS-SR_H150) – ASTM A354 Grade BD
min Fy = 130 ksi, min Fu = 150 ksi

Installation

  • When placing the rod, the most commonly used procedure involves dropping in (or pushing up) the rod through the drilled holes in the flooring system after framing has been completed
  • Drilled holes through the sill plate and flooring system should be completed with one continuous drilling action
  • See installation animations in the Image & Video Gallery for further description

  1. Allowable tension capacities are based on AISC 360-16.
  2. No further increase in allowable load is permitted.
  3. For standard-strength ATS-SRx product information, see Canadian Guide C-L-SRSCAN. For ASD load values, refer to ATR-X for equivalent Allowable Tension Capacities.
  4. Note that rod strength and allowable tension capacity, if using Steel Strong-Rods (ATS-SRxH) for 1 1/8" and 1 1/4" rod diameters, are associated with 120 ksi rod steel. When ATS-SRxH and ATS-HSRx are used in the same ATS run or calculation set between restraints, the 120 ksi ATS-SRxH will govern.
