What is the Pullout Strength of Portland Bolt’s Anchor Bolts?
This is a question that we are asked on a regular basis, and one that we do not have a clear answer for due to the variety of factors involved in making this calculation.
Anchor bolt pull out strength is the force required to pull a single bolt out of its foundation. In order to calculate this number properly, one must have data on factors other than the anchor bolt itself. Some of these include: strength of the concrete, embedment depth of the anchor bolt, etc.
We are able to provide the yield and tensile strengths of the anchor bolts that we provide, but we do not have the necessary data available to us, nor do we have the engineering expertise to calculate pull-out strength of a specific anchor bolt. We typically recommend that an engineer be consulted if you need to make this calculation.
