SB Anchor Bolt

SB

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 IBC and IRC.

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 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.

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. To obtain LRFD values for cast-in-place anchor bolts, multiply ASD seismic load values by 1.4 and wind load values by 1.6 (1.67 for 2015 IBC).
  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.
