Load Tables

SSB Allowable Connector Loads

Load Table - SSB Allowable Connector Loads
  1. When the SSB connector is used with two shouldered screws, the screws may be installed in any two slots.
  2. Allowable loads are based on clips installed with (3) #12–24 screws in the anchor leg. For other anchorage installations, the capacity of the connection system will be the minimum of the tabulated value and the allowable load from the SSB Allowable Anchorage Loads table below.
  3. The maximum standoff for SSB with (2) screws and (3) screws is 12 1/4" and 11", respectively.
