Sturdi-Wall Plus brackets are a heavy duty engineered anchoring system that attaches a wood column to concrete foundations and are generally used in the post frame building industry. These brackets are made with ¼ “steel plate, A706 rebar in either # 4 or # 5 size depending on model, robotically welded to meet engineering specs and are given a professional look with a baked EpoxZi Shield coat finish. Some models are available in Hot Dipped Galvanized for more corrosive environments.
Sturdi-Wall Plus brackets are used in wet set concrete applications and provide the highest strength bracket to foundation connection when concrete is fully cured. Wet set brackets require less concrete coverage than the Drill Set brackets, allowing them to work well in pier foundations, stem walls, post repair and renovations. Sturdi-Wall Plus brackets are available in Standard, OT and GL models.
Standard Model – Accommodates dimensional lumber and laminated columns which are typically nailed together with no additional machining.
OT Model – Accommodates some laminated wood columns which have been planed and are usually mechanically fastened and glued together.
GL Model – Accommodates most laminated wood columns which have been planed and glued.
