CARRUTH BLDG. 'D'

Location:
500 Old Connecticut Path
Framingham, MA

Date:
December 2006

Client:
J. Calnan and Associates

Project Type:
New construction

Building Features:
EPDM (membrane systems)

Structural Attachment Considerations:
Through bolted fasteners for wrapping steel framing

Products Supplied and Tested:
SM-3-10-10 Roof anchors
SM-3-12-10 Roof anchors
DISCONTINUED Wall anchors (replaced with SM-81-4-10)
SM-TRA Threaded rod assemblies
SM-PLT Back plates

Objective:
Design a code-compliant suspended maintenance system using roof anchors that wrap around steel beams. Wrapping the beam can be necessary when beams are not substantial enough to support the load of a weld to beam type anchor. Wall anchors were also supplied to avoid roof penetrations where possible. Summit Anchor Co. was contracted to test and certify these anchors after they were installed by the contractor, which was successfully done.
