HOW TO DESIGN ANCHOR SYSTEMS FOR BASE PLATES

When fastening anchors for base plates it’s important to carefully consider:

  • Applied forces – including seismic, fatigue, wind
  • Base material – whether it’s masonry, cracked concrete or non-cracked concrete
  • Distance to edges and spacing
  • Attachments
  • Corrosion
