 #216 Wire-Type Column Anchors 

 Used to tie masonry walls to steel columns with the column flanges parallel to the wall. Installed in pairs. 

Lengths are measured from the inside of the flange loop to the masonry bend. 

Test Data: 

Anchors were tested in pairs by placing them onto the flat stock so that both wires were lying in the same vertical plane. The 2" (50.8mm) masonry bends were clamped and attached to a load cell. The test was to determine failure at the loop that hooks onto the beam. 

1/4” diameter failure at 1,542 pounds 

3/16” diameter failure at 816 pounds
