Steel Strong-Wall® Bolts

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Steel Strong-Wall® Bolts. You can also view product information related to the category: Lateral Systems for Cold-Formed Steel Construction

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.

Product Includes

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


  • ASTM F1554 Grade 36; High-strength (HS) ASTM A449

Load Tables

Steel Strong-Wall® Shear Anchorage

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.

Steel Strong-Wall Shear Anchorage
  1. Shear anchorage designs conform to ACI 318-05 and assume minimum f'c = 2500 psi concrete. See load tables 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 318-05 Section D.3.3.4.
  4. Wind includes Seismic Design Category A and B.
  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® panel design shear force exceeds the tabulated anchorage allowable shear load.
  7. The registered design professional may specify alternate shear anchorage.
