Strong Frame® Anchorage Template 

Strong Frame® Anchorage Template

Anchorage placement is the most critical phase of a moment frame installation. The newly redesigned template (MFTPL6) makes anchor-bolt placement easy and reduces the chances of misplaced anchor bolts. The templates are sold as part of the moment frame shear-lug kit or the moment frame anchor-bolt kit. These pre-assembled anchorage assemblies make the placement of anchor bolts quick and easy. Simply locate the first leg of the moment frame and nail the template to the wood forms with arrow pointing to center of the frame. Hook a tape measure on the center-line slot and then pull the tape to locate the center of the opposite leg of the moment frame. Center line marks on the templates make for accurate placement

The template is also sold separately for use with field-assembled anchor bolts that allows customized anchor-bolt design while still providing the accuracy of using a template. All anchor bolts are 3/4" diameter.

Installation

Locate the first leg of the moment frame and nail the template to the wood forms with arrow pointing to center of the frame. Hook a tape measure on the center-line slot and then pull the tape to locate the center of the opposite leg of the moment frame. Center line marks on the templates make for accurate placement.
