Corrugated Column Anchor With Square Hole (394)

Part Number: 394

Used to anchor masonry walls to structural horizontal columns.

The anchor is pre-loaded onto a vertical sliding Bar and the bar is then welded to the steel member. As the wall is built, the anchor is placed in the mortar joint.

#394 Corrugated Column Anchor with Square Hole

The efficient and reliable transfer of horizontal forces between a masonry wall and the building frame is critical to the stability of the building and its main components.

The #394 allows you to connect a masonry wall to Joist, Joist Girder or any other Truss as well as to a Castellated or Rolled Beam, while allowing free deflection. The anchor is pre-loaded onto the Vertical Sliding Bar which is then welded to the steel member. As the wall is built, the anchor is placed in the mortar joint.

System Benefits

1. Allows the use of joists and joist girders along the perimeter of the building, while anchoring the masonry wall to the open web members with the same efficiency as to a rolled steel member. This can reduce significantly the total cost of the steel framing.

2. Allows the placement of the beam, joist, or joist girder along the wall, rather than built into the wall, while assuring proper connection to the masonry.

3. Allows the use of the masonry wall as a shear wall more often, because the connection is stronger and more reliable. If necessary, two anchors can be installed on a single vertical sliding bar, thus increasing the total shear resistance of the system in a very economical way.
