If anchor bolts are observed at heights that exceed limits set by the ANSI/TIA-222 Standard, they must be restored to compliance. Oftentimes, non-compliant anchor bolts are identified during routine inspections.
When non-compliance is observed, there are several potential solutions to restore code-compliance. To ensure anchor bold compliance, it is important to understand the following:
- TIA Design Standard Limits for Anchor Bolts
- Potential Solutions when Non-Compliant Anchor Bolts are Observed
- Lowering the Tower
- High Strength Non-Shrink Grout
- Steel Shims
- Considerations and Risks Associated with each Solution
