Shallow Podium Slab Anchor Kit
The Shallow Podium Slab anchor kit includes the patented Anchor Bolt Locator (ABL) and patent-pending Shallow Anchor Rod (SAR). Uniquely suited for installation to concrete-deck forms, the ABL enables accurate and secure placement of anchor bolts. The structural heavy hex nut is attached to a pre-formed steel “chair” and becomes the bottom nut of the anchor assembly. The shallow anchor is provided with a plate washer fixed in place that attaches on the ABL nut when assembled and increases the anchor breakout and pullout capacity. The shallow anchor is easily installed before or after placement of the slab reinforcing steel or tendons. Where higher anchor capacities are needed such as at edge conditions or to meet seismic ductility requirements, the anchor kit is combined with anchor reinforcement as shown in Simpson Strong-Tie SAR drawing detail sheets.
