SUMO® Wall Shoes are utilized to create cost-effective tensile connections between precast concrete walls and foundations, as well as between precast concrete walls themselves. SUMO® Wall Shoes are used together with HPM® and PPM® Anchor Bolt types incorporating specially designed AL washers.
Specifically engineered for tension splices of precast wall elements, SUMO® Wall Shoes find applications in various structural components of buildings, including core walls and elevator shafts, to enhance stiffness. The transfer of loads from the walls to foundations or other load-bearing structures is achieved through the combined utilization of wall shoes, anchor bolts, and wall reinforcements. SUMO® Wall Shoes are available in a range of standard models to accommodate diverse precast concrete wall connections.
The system comprises wall shoes and anchor bolts. The wall shoes are embedded within the precast concrete walls, while the anchor bolts are cast into foundations or other walls. During on-site assembly, the walls are erected on shim plates that have been adjusted to the proper position, and then secured to the anchor bolts using nuts and special AL washers as part of the bolt connection. The finalization of precast concrete wall connections involves grouting the recesses and joints beneath 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 Documents 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 BOLDA® 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.
Wall Shoe Anchor Bolts with special AL washers are used together with SUMO® Wall Shoes. Wall Shoe Anchor Bolts transfer tension, compression and shear forces to a reinforced concrete base structure such as the foundations.
