Engineering Data

Panels, Concrete pads, J-bolt anchors, Drill-screw anchors, Steel tube rating and Coatings

1. J bolts

1/2” set 12” in to the concrete base. This method meets and exceeds hurricane-rating 5, which is rated for 150mph. The panels under these conditions will with stands 3500 lbs of wind forces. The J bolts will have two sets of nuts with one set under the base plate with a second on top. This will allow adjustment for leveling.

• J bolt (individual material specification) per anchor
• Low Carbon Steel meeting the minimum tensile and yield strengths of ASTM
• A36 & ASTM F1554 Grade 36
• Min. Tensile: 58,000 PSI
• Min Yield: 36,000 PSI
• Thread requirements: ANSI B1.1 UNC Class 2A. (Rolled Threads)

2. Simpson strong-ties anchor systems (THD50600H)

This system is a 1/2” drill and screw in type anchoring system. It can be reinforced with epoxy to add extra strength. This system meets and exceeds the state of Florida hurricane rating ICC-ES ESR-1056 (Used for Florida State Wide product approval # FL2304) This method will with stand 3,500 lbs of wind forces. The advantages to this system allow old pads to be reused saving money and the ecology.

The Shear loads in Normal-weight concrete:
1/2” Drill size 1/2" embed depth 5 3/4”
• Installed in 2000 psi concrete (Ultimate lbs 19,793) (Allowable 4950 lbs)
• Installed in 3000 psi concrete (Allowable 5560 lbs)
• Installed in 4000 psi concrete (Ultimate lbs 24,680) (Allowable 4950 lbs)
• Shear load based on concrete edge distance, 2500 psi (17.2 MPa) concrete–size 1/2" (12.7 mm), drill bit diameter 1/2", embed depth 4 1/2" (114 mm), minimum edge distance 1 3/4" (45 mm), minimum end distance 8" (203 mm), minimum spacing distance 8" (203 mm), Ultimate lbs 7,800 (34.7kN), Standard Dev. lbs. 300 (1.3 kN) Allowable lbs. 1,950 (8.7 kN)

3. Steel pickets

Pickets are designed to allow wind to pass through, reducing load on fence during storm. All parts of a steel unit are powdered coated with Tiger Drylac Series 38 Super durable polyester powder coating.

3.1. Laminated fiberglass ceramic panel

Meets certification requirements of OBBS (Ohio Bureau of Building Standards)
Ceramic panel Panels are rated at 38,000 PSI
Hurricane rating number 5, 150 mph wind

4. Steel

ASTM 500 structural tubing, coated with Tiger Drylac Series 38 Super durable polyester powder coating

5. Steel coatings

In most cases, steel parts are coated with Tiger Drylac Series 38 Super durable polyester powder coating. If a specification requires painting, we use epoxy primer and Polane S™ or Treadplex™. We can also meet whatever specification you supply.

6. Concrete pads for compactors

The below concrete Pad specifications are suggested as soil conditions may require different specifications. Consult your PE or architect and local codes. The below pads require no foundation installed as any other pad
