MFSL Anchorage Assembly

Strong Frame Moment Frame

Simpson Strong‑Tie offers the patented preengineered MFSL anchorage assembly to make specification and installation of anchorage as simple as possible. The unique shear‑lug design provides a complete solution meeting the 2009, 2012 and 2015 International Building Code® requirements for both tension and shear. These solutions come with preinstalled shear lugs.

MFSL anchorage assemblies are fully assembled and include a template which allows easy positioning and attachment to forms prior to the pour. Inspection is easy since the head is stamped with the “No Equal” (≠) symbol for identification, bolt length, bolt diameter, and optional “H” for high strength (if specified).

Installation

Concrete must be thoroughly vibrated around the shear lug to ensure full consolidation of the concrete around the assembly.
