Note 1: ALLOWABLE loads are shown in the LARGE BOLD font, Ultimate loads are shown in smaller italic font.
Note 2: Testing conducted in accordance with ICC AC70 & ASTM E1190.
Note 3: Safety factors are based on coefficient of variation. In accordance with ICC AC70, the safety factor will be no less than 5.
Note 4: Values shown in concrete are for the fastener only. Connected members must be investigated separately.
Note 5: Cyclic, fatigue, shock loads, and other design criteria may require a different safety factor.
Note 6: Job site testing may be required to determine actual job site values.
Note 7: Minimum edge distance is 3 inches unless otherwise approved.
