Panel Bears with Bracket
Panel bears on pressure-treated sill plate and is positively connected to concrete using bracket. Bracket is positively connected to panel with partially-threaded screws and to concrete with post-installed anchors. Grout is provided below plate for elevation control.
Purpose: Transfer of vertical load from panel to concrete. Can also transfer in-plane and out-of-plane loads from the panel to concrete.
- Capacity of connection is dependent on the perpendicular-to-grain capacity of sill plate or parallel-to-grain capacity of panel where sill plate is not used.
- Screws, anchors, and bracket provide load path for in-plane and out-of-plane loads.
- Side plate may be used in conjunction with this connection for increased secondary load transfer capability.
- Connection may be installed without grout or plate. Without grout, the connection does not accommodate likely variations in top of concrete elevations, even within the range of appropriate concrete tolerances. Without plate, the panel is more susceptible to moisture wicking and requires added separation material between panel base and concrete.
- Proprietary options exist. Potential suppliers include Simpson Strong-Tie, Rothoblaas, and MiTek.
