Steel Strong-Wall® Anchorage

Anchorage solutions for Steel Strong-Wall® shearwalls have been updated to optimize foundation anchorage design. Steel Strong-Wall shearwalls feature the most complete anchorage designs for shear and tension forces of any manufacturer. The solutions featured in this section for the code-listed SSWAB anchor bolts have been value engineered and calculated to conform to the 2012 IBC and ACI 318-11 Appendix D.

Simpson Strong-Tie now provides grade beam anchorage solutions for the Steel Strong-Wall shearwall, which have been calculated to conform to ACI 318-11 Appendix D for seismic and wind uplift loads and have been tested at Simpson Strong-Tie’s state-of-the-art Tyrell Gilb Research Laboratory to validate performance. See Anchor Reinforcement Solutions on Grade Beams for additional information and see details 1 thru 5/SSW1.1 (PDF) for structural details.
