SCW Allowable Connector Loads

Load Table - SCW Allowable Connector Loads
  1. When the SCW5.5 connector is used with two shouldered screws, install screws in the outermost slots.
  2. Allowable loads are based on clips installed with all holes in the anchor leg filled with #12–14 screws. For other anchorage installations, the capacity of the connection system will be the minimum of the tabulated value and the allowable load from the SCW Allowable Anchorage Loads table below.
