SUMO® Wall Shoes are used to create cost-effective tensile connections between precast concrete walls and foundations or between precast concrete walls. SUMO® Wall Shoes are used together with HPM® and PPM® Anchor Bolt types with specially designed AL washers.
SUMO® Wall Shoes are connecting items designed for tension splices of wall precast elements. Among other applications, wall shoes are used in the stiffening structures of buildings, such as core walls and elevator shafts. The loads are transferred from walls to foundations or other load-bearing structures through wall shoes, anchor bolts and wall reinforcements. SUMO® Wall Shoes are available in several standard models to suit most precast concrete wall connections.
The system consists of wall shoes and anchor bolts. Wall shoes are cast into precast concrete walls, whereas anchor bolts are cast into foundations or other walls. On site, the walls are erected on adjusted shim plates in the correct position and fixed to the anchor bolts with nuts and special AL washers as bolt connection. Precast concrete wall connections are finalized by grouting the recesses and joints underneath the wall.
Comprehensive product information like resistances, required supplementary reinforcement, concrete grades, limitations of use etc. can be found within the Technical Manual. Product details may be country-specific. For design, always use product information that is localized for design's destination country. Country specific Technical Manuals can be found under Design Tools -page, or from website of the country in question.
HPM® Rebar Anchor Bolts are used with HPKM® Column Shoes and SUMO® Wall Shoes to create fast and safe connections between precast elements. Anchor Bolts transfer the compression and tension forces through a combination of headed studs and the bond of the ribs of ribbed bars.
PPM® High-Strength Anchor Bolts are used as counterparts for PEC® Column Shoes and SUMO® Wall Shoes to create fast and safe connections between precast elements. Anchor Bolts transfer compression and tension forces through a combination of headed studs and the bond of the ribs of ribbed bars.
