The SB anchor bolt offers an anchorage solution for our holdowns that call for a 5/8"-diameter, a 7/8"-diameter and a 1"-diameter anchor.
SB anchor bolts are code listed by ICC-ES under the 2012/2015/2018 IBC and IRC.
Identification 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
ASTM F-1554, Grade 36
None. May be ordered HDG; contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
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 AnchorMate® anchor bolt holders. Install the SB per the plan view detail.
Minimum concrete compressive strength is 2,500 psi.
When rebar is required it does not need to be tied to the SB.
