Now Color-Coded for Each Level!

Using the Stud Rail system can often eliminate the need for column capitals or drop heads. This provides significant savings, since these column details are often difficult to form and place.

Stud Rail, a double-headed stud anchor (DSA) system, is used for these deck-to-column connections. The system is designed to transfer the load into the concrete deck, create a larger shear area around the column, and resist the punching shear forces or drop heads. This provides significant savings, since these column details are often difficult to form and place.

Each stud is double-headed so the load transfer is equal at the top and bottom of the assembly. Stud Rails are available in different sizes to match the engineered loads and color-coded for each level.

If you have a multi-story project and contractor that would benefit from a Stud Rail application, then get a set of plans and contact your SureBuilt representative.
