Hardy Frame®  Moment Frame Bolt Brace

stacking washer

The Hardy Frame® Bolt Brace (HFBB) that is designed for use with the Hardy Frame® Moment Frame is a light gage plate that attaches to the embed end of the four embed bolts at the plate washer and double nut, with the purpose of preventing bolt sway when the concrete is poured. Although installations without the Hardy Frame® Bolt Brace do not result in a loss of allowable tension or shear loads, the importance of accurate, plumb, embed placement cannot be overstated for Moment Frame installation
