Steel Strong-Wall® Anchorage Solutions

SSWAB Anchor Bolts

SSWAB Anchor Bolts SSWAB anchor bolts in 3/4" and 1" diameters offer flexibility to meet specific project demands. Inspection is easy; the head is stamped with a No-Equal® symbol for identification, bolt length, bolt diameter, and optional “HS” for High Strength if specified.

Material: ASTM F1554 Grade 36; High Strength (HS) ASTM A449

An additional nut for template installation is provided with each SSWAB. It may also be used for SSW installation.

SSWHSR Extension Kit

SSWHSR allows for anchorage in tall stemwall applications where full embedment of an SSWAB into the footing is required. The head is stamped for identification like an SSWAB. Kit includes ASTM A449 high-strength rod with heavy hex nut fixed in place and high strength coupler nut. Do not use in place of SSWAB.

  1. See the illustrations below for foundation illustrations showing W and de dimensions.
  2. Anchorage designs conform to ACI 318-14 Chapter 17 and ACI 318-11 Appendix D with no supplementary reinforcement and cracked or uncracked concrete as noted.
  3. Anchor strength indicates required grade of SSWAB anchor bolt. Standard or High-Strength (HS).
  4. Seismic indicates Seismic Design Category C through F. Detached 1 and 2 family dwellings in SDC C may use wind anchorage solutions. Seismic anchorage designs conform to ACI 318-14 Section 17.2.3.4.3 and ACI 318-11 Section D.3.3.4.
  5. Wind includes seismic design category A and B and detached one– and two-family dwellings in SDC C.
  6. Foundation dimensions are for anchorage only. Foundation design (size and reinforcement) by designer. The registered design professional may specify alternate embedment, footing size or anchor bolt.

Foundation shear reinforcement to resist shear forces from Strong-Wall shearwalls located at the edge of concrete is shown in the table below. The SSW12 and SSW15 used in wind applications do not require shear reinforcement when the shearwall design shear force is less than the anchorage allowable shear load shown in the table below.

Shear Anchorage Solutions

Shear Anchorage Solutions
  1. Shear anchorage designs conform to ACI 318-14 Chapter 17 and 318-11 and assume minimum f'c = 2,500 psi concrete. See Steel Strong-Wall Anchorage Solutions for tension anchorage.
  2. Shear reinforcement is not required for panels installed on a wood floor, interior foundation applications (panel installed away from edge of concrete), or braced-wall panel applications.
  3. Seismic indicates Seismic Design Category C through F. Detached 1 and 2 family dwellings in SDC C may use wind anchorage solutions. Seismic shear reinforcement designs conform to ACI 318-14 Section 17.2.3.5.3 and ACI 318-11 Section D.3.3.5.
  4. Wind includes seismic design category A and B and detached one– and two-family dwellings in SDC C.
  5. Where noted minimum curb/stemwall width is 6" when standard-strength SSWAB is used.
  6. Use (1) #3 tie for SSW12 and SSW15 when the Steel Strong-Wall design shear force exceeds the tabulated anchorage allowable shear load.
  7. No. 4 grade 40 shear reinforcement may be substituted for SSW shear anchorage solutions.
  8. The registered design professional may specify alternate shear anchorage.
